Are you about to make these common seller mistakes?
'Tis the season for thrills and chills! This year Halloween may look different for many, but there are still plenty of things out there to scare us. I prefer not to be afraid, and so I tend to avoid putting myself in scary situations. I carry this philosophy over into my business and work extra hard to prevent my clients from having a haunting experience when selling their home.
This month, I'm featuring 3 SCARY selling mistakes to avoid.
1️⃣ First - Failure To Prepare The Home
Number 1 - Skipping the prep work. Prep-work includes clean up and declutter, repairs and upgrades, proper staging, and phenomenal photos. These pre-game steps are proven to bring higher profit to your bottom line and should never be overlooked. I try to meet with my sellers 3-4 weeks before they put the home on the market. This advance notice gives them time to schedule the work, and it gives me time to prepare marketing.
2️⃣ Second - Regretting To Price it Right
Number 2 - Overpricing the home. Overpricing a home leads to more days on the market, which typically leads to lower offer prices. Not to mention it's inconvenient to the seller to have to keep their home model ready for a more extended period. Overpricing the home and failing to do the prep-work drives the buyers to other properties.
3️⃣ Third - Neglecting To Use An Expert
Number 3 - Not working with an experienced market expert. As an experienced professional, I've got your back when it comes to preventing costly mistakes, including those covered in numbers 1 and 2. Not to mention, a skilled negotiation expert can make a massive difference to the amount of money you walk away with at the closing table.
If you know anyone buying or selling, let me take the SCARY out of the process.
