Stakes are high when you go to sell your home. Don’t makes these 6 common mistakes we see every day:

1. Choose the Wrong Realtor. You need an advocate who’s going to tell you what you need to hear - not always what you want to hear. Hire a professional who is right for the job.

2. Overprice the Home. Price within the market so you get the most people interested in your home. Today’s buyer is educated. You do yourself no favors by “leaving room for negotiation.” When you price to sell, you usually come out with a higher net than when you test the market.

3. Ignore the Little Stuff. We expand on deferred maintenance in this blog post. If you need resources to help you address these ticky-tacky repairs, don’t hesitate to ask. You can never be too early addressing deferred maintenance.

4. Neglect to Declutter. Eyes are on today’s listings 24/7. It is imperative that you declutter the home. That goes from getting rid of distracting knick knacks that crowd the fireplace mantle to sifting through packed closets so buyers don’t begin to question the amount of storage the home has. We offer professional staging advice on every home we list. Learn more here.

5. Restrict Access to the Home. You’ve done a lot of working gaining interest in the home. When a buyer decides to take time out of their schedule to see if they want to buy it, you should try your best to make it happen.

6. Take Critical Feedback Personally. If you’ve followed the rest of the rest of my advice, this one should come easily. Speaking from personal experience, I know how difficult it can be to think of your home as a product on the market, but that’s exactly what it is now. Listen to the market and take feedback constructively.
