When you go to sell your home, brace yourself for the onslaught of outside advice you'll hear from friends, family and even strangers! While their advice is well intended, beware of common home selling myths that can end up costing you a pretty penny in the long run. Read the short list of myths below and listen to the show for all the details!
- Myth: You should only sell your home during the spring and summer.
This isn't necessarily the case! Selling your home during a non-peak time of year could actually give you an advantage. The bottom line: there isn't really a bad time of year to sell your home. Sell your home when you're ready!
- Myth: The market is slow right now, so it's better to wait.
Of course you want to sell your home when the market is hot, but the market can change daily. It's hard to predict what the market will do! If you're ready to sell, then there's no better time to do it then the present!
- Myth: Don't stage or fix anything up. You're moving out!
Buyers don't want to fix things! They'll just move on to the next house if your house has too many fix-up items.
- Myth: You don't need professional photos. iPhone photos look better than ever now!
You only get one first impression! The first thing people see are photos of your home and you want them to look great! Professional photos are a must.
