The biggest mistakes we see sellers make
Are you planning to sell your home? Avoid these four common, non-price-related mistakes that many sellers make. Remember, these slip-ups could cost you!
#1: Forgetting First Impressions Matter
Don't underestimate the power of curb appeal. A neglected exterior can hinder your property from standing out in the competitive market. A little work can make all the difference, so give your home the attention it deserves!
#2 Underestimating the Art of Staging
You may love your furniture, but a cluttered or personalized space can distract potential buyers. A well-staged home not only highlights its potential but also helps buyers envision their future in the space.
#3 Ignoring Repairs and Maintenance
Buyers gravitate towards a turnkey home that's ready for them to move in. Fair or not, potential buyers will judge your WHOLE home even if they see only "small" problems. Overlooking necessary repairs and maintenance, even if they are just cosmetic, can be a major turn-off and potentially stall your sale.
#4 Overlooking the Power of Online Marketing
Failing to establish a strong online presence can reduce your home's visibility and limit your pool of potential buyers. Leveraging online marketing - including professionally produced photos, detailed descriptions, and engaging content - is essential for a successful sale.
