Avoid These Common Home Selling Mistakes

Home selling is one of those things that you just don’t do very often. It’s understandable if you don’t know every nuance of the process, but there are a few common mistakes that you must avoid! If your agent gives you advice on any of these things, it’s a good idea to listen to them. See a quick list of mistakes below and listen to the show for valuable insights from Dave and Robert.

  1. Your home sells funny and you refuse to believe it!

  2. Your home has way too much personality. Really customized homes can turn off buyers that don’t have the same taste. Neutral colors and decorations apply to a wider range of buyers.

  3. Setting up cameras to spy on buyers. If you don’t disclose that you are video recording to those entering the home you can get in big trouble!

  4. Don’t hang out at your house during open houses or showings!

  5. Pricing your home based on feelings rather than fair market value.

  6. Avoid keeping all your belongings in your house while it’s on the market. Packing up some of your stuff will help you house show better.

  7. Being reluctant to spruce your home up before listing it. Certain small tweaks cost only a little money and can bring in big returns.

  8. Using lack luster listing photos.

  9. Not spending time on your home’s curb appeal. First impressions have a big impact!
