If you want your listing to succeed in today’s market, avoid these three common mistakes.

Want to sell your home? Get a home value report
Want to buy a home? Search all homes for sale

There are a lot of ways to succeed when selling a house, but, unfortunately, there are just as many ways to fail. Here are three mistakes, in particular, to avoid when the time comes for you to list:

1. Asking too much. Everyone wants to earn top dollar for their home, but setting your sticker price too high can cause your property to sit stagnant on the market. At this point, even lowering your price will only help so much. Always talk to a real estate agent about the best pricing strategy for your home before you put it up for sale.

Homes should be properly cleaned, decluttered, and possibly even staged, in order to give buyers the best possible first impression.

2. Advertising too little. Along with having the right price, homes must also have the right level of exposure. Even if your home looks great and is fairly priced, it won’t sell if no one knows about it. This is why our team has a top-notch marketing plan that utilizes print and digital advertising—so we can make sure that all potential buyers are aware of your listing. 

3. Not making your house presentable. As you can imagine, even the best-priced and best-marketed homes won’t do well with buyers if they aren’t in good shape. Homes should be properly cleaned, decluttered, and possibly even staged in order to give buyers the best possible first impression. Our team will be happy to walk through your home before we list it to help you identify what should be done to make it market-ready.
