3 Deadly Mistakes Homesellers Make and How to Avoid Them

If you are a home seller, you may not realize there are several deadly mistakes you can make when selling your house.

How can you avoid mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars?

A new report prepared by leaders in the real estate industry called the 9 step system to get your home sold fast and for top dollar identifies common home seller mistakes and lays out an easy-to-follow step-by-step system to help you get the most money for your home.

1. Not Preparing Your Home for the Buyer’s Eye

One of the most important things you can do when selling your home is to make sure your home is prepared for the home buyer’s eye. You may think that just straightening things up and making your home tidy is enough.

However, there is much more involved than just keeping the house clean to prepare your home for a potential buyer.

You want to make sure that you are doing things like:

  • Decluttering
  • Taking family photos off the walls and shelves
  • Packing knick-knacks and decorations
  • Removing odors from pets and cooking
  • Taking the minimalist approach with all your belongings

You may wonder why you should remove family photos, decorations, and knick-knacks off the walls and shelves?

No two buyers are the same, and they are all finicky in different ways. You can never tell what they may be looking for or thinking as they walk through your home.

You want potential buyers to enter your home and envision themselves living there. When buyers visit your home, do not allow them to judge based on personal photos or decorations that may offend them in some way you would never think of.

For example, they may not want a home where too many pets, kids, or grandkids have lived there. They might think that the house has too much wear and tear and the possible damage they can not see, especially if the walls and shelves are covered.

2. Selling Too Hard During Showings Can Scare Off Potential Buyers

Have you ever shopped for a new car? Did you feel pressured to buy because the salesperson was trying too hard? Did it scare you away?

This happens all the time, especially when it is an expensive item.

When people feel like they’re being pushed into something too hard or the seller is anxious for you to buy now, it can drive you away faster than you can say goodbye.

Why? Because it is often a sign that something is wrong, or at least that is the impression you get.

One of the best things you can do is remove yourself, your children, and your pets from the home when the realtor shows it.

That way, you can rely on the professionals. You won’t be taking any comments personally or feel the need to say or do something that may compromise the sale.

The potential buyer will also feel more comfortable asking questions without worrying about offending you.

3. Making it Difficult for Buyers to Get Information on Your Home

When you list your home for sale, you want to ensure that potential buyers have all the information they need to decide if they will buy your house.

Often home sellers do not realize how much information needs to be divulged. It is better to be cautious and give them more information than not enough.

When you choose the right real estate expert to sell your home, they will know how to put a complete listing package together. They will have everything set out on the counter while buyers view your home and a packet for potential buyers to take with them when they leave.
