Avoid These 4 Mistakes When Selling Your Home

Avoid these 4 mistakes when selling your home to help you sell fast and for Top Dollar:

Getting Emotional

When it comes to selling your home, especially your first one, it’s easy to feel emotional. You put in a lot of time and effort to find the ideal one, put money aside for a down payment and furniture, and made a lot of memories. When it comes to saying goodbye, most people struggle to keep their emotions in check, but it’s not impossible. Instead of thinking of yourself as a homeowner, start thinking of yourself as a businessperson and a salesperson once you’ve decided to sell your property. In fact, forget that you’re the one who owns the house. You’ll be able to separate yourself from the emotional components of selling the property if you approach the deal solely from a financial standpoint.

Setting an Impossible Price

Setting the correct asking price is critical no matter the current real estate market. Remember when you or your agent completed a comparative market research to determine a reasonable asking price for your home? Buyers will do the same for your home, so you should be one step ahead of them as a seller.

Hiding Problems

Don’t fool yourself into believing you can get away with concealing severe property issues. During the buyer’s home inspection, any problems will be discovered. You have three options to deal with any issues. Either fix the problem before listing for sale, price the property below market value to account for it, or list the property at a normal price and offer the buyer a credit to fix the problem.

Not Getting Ready for the Sale

Decluttering, cleaning thoroughly, putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls, and getting rid of any odors will also make a good impression on buyers. This can be an overwhelming process for many, that is why the Sibbach Team has complimentary stagers to assist you with preparing your home for sale. 

Final Thoughts

It’s critical to understand how to sell a home. By avoiding costly errors, you’ll be well on your way to putting your best foot forward and accomplishing a smooth, profitable sale that every home seller desires.
