Common Home Selling Mistakes

Preparing to sell a home often comes with many major changes, such as a new career or long-distance relocation. During this busy time, avoiding common seller mistakes will reduce stress and could add thousands more to your bottom line when your home sells. In this article, we will discuss what home selling mistakes are the most popular ones.

The two most important decisions you will make when selling your home are which agent to work with and what price to list—and the two go hand in hand. Too often, sellers select an agent based on the sale price they recommend, or because they are a friend or family member. Selecting an experienced agent who understands current market conditions is critical to success. A good agent will help you select an appropriate price that will generate buyers. An agent who simply tells you what you want to hear is doing you a disservice, likely resulting in a longer sales cycle and lower price.

Good agents are worth the value of their commissions. Before insisting on the lowest possible commission, consider the value the agent is offering in terms of marketing strategy, expert guidance and other services.

Negotiation is also an important part of selling a home. Although real estate agents handle the actual negotiations, sellers can lose a deal if they are unwilling to compromise. The first rule of effective negotiation is taking the emotion out of the deal. it’s important to remember that this is a business transaction. With these simple rules, you’ll easily complete your deal.
