Avoid these Mistakes when Selling: Life will be Easier

Throughout my career I’ve noticed that there are a few mistakes that sellers often make. Here’s a list of things to avoid when selling:

1. Don’t overprice your home

We all want to get the most money for our homes, but setting the price too high can turn away potential buyers and lengthen the selling process. Aim for a sweet spot that’s attractive to buyers but still allows you to get the price you want.

2. Don’t neglect repairs and maintenance

A little elbow grease can go a long way in making your home more appealing to buyers. Fixing those pesky leaky faucets and outdated appliances can make a big difference. Trust me, you don’t want buyers noticing all the things that need fixing when they could be envisioning themselves living in your gorgeous home.

3. Don’t forget to declutter and depersonalize

It’s important to make your home look as spacious and welcoming as possible. Removing clutter and personal items can help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space. Plus, it’ll be easier to pack up and move when the time comes!

4. Don’t skip the staging

A well-staged home can really show off its best features and make it more attractive to buyers. Plus, it’ll make it easier for people to visualize what they could do with the space.
