Not getting Pre-Approved
Before you try to sell your home make sure that you talk to a mortgage lender, like Premier Mortgage Lending, even if you prefer to pay in cash. You want to be sure that you can get pre-approved for your next home.
Failing to de-clutter
When people come to look at your home with anticipation to buy, make sure that it looks clean and welcoming. You don’t want it to be completely empty but you also don’t want it to be cluttered. They want to be able to see themselves living in that home.
Pricing your home incorrectly
Make sure to research what new homes are selling for. How many bedroom, how many square feet, how many bathroom, etc. and compare those houses with your own. Pricing too high can lead to no offers so be ready to compromise and stay flexible.
Marketing your home with bad quality images
If you really want to sell your home you have to present it in a way that makes someone else want to buy it. Easier said than done, right? Make sure you are proud of the photos your take and then set out for the world to see. If you wouldn’t want to buy the house, neither will anyone else.
Refusing to make minor repairs
If you have a buyer interested but there are minor “fixes” that need to happen, make sure not to fight them on it. You could miss out on the sale completely
by refusing to make repairs or making false promises.
It is a long and sometimes difficult process to sell your home but if you research and ask for a little help, it should not be impossible.
