- Getting Emotional
It’s easy to get emotional about selling your home, especially if you’re a first time home seller. Your home can hold so many great or life-altering memories that can make letting go challenging. Before you put your house on the market, reflect on how the house has served its purpose for however long you lived there. Think about what life beyond this sale will be and whether you’re happy with that picture. Getting emotional is 100% normal, but do your best to prepare yourself to handle the sale of your home as a business deal.
2. Not Hiring a Real Estate Agent
I’ve seen it all – Being a top local real estate agent, I have in-depth working knowledge of our CSRA market. I’ll work with you to prepare you home for selling so your home makes a great first impression when it hits the market, utilize multiple marketing techniques so your home gets the visibility and exposure from potential buyers and once you start receiving offers on your home having an agent experienced at negotiating with for your best interest in mind will get you the best terms possible on the deal.
Buying and Selling homes is a complex transaction with many potential financial and legal pitfalls. Experience matters to ensure you get top dollar in an ever changing real estate market. You don’t want your biggest asset in the hands of an amatuer.
3. Don’t Miss Out on the Buyers Buying Now
When is the best time to sell? As soon as you are ready!
Homes sell in every month of the year, the best time to sell is as soon as you are comfortable with so that you don’t miss out on the buyers who are buying now.
4. Being Unavailable
Leaving your house in short order & always keeping it show ready can be difficult. But it is well worth it, if the buyer falls in love with your home. You never know who will be the right buyer for you or what time they will request to see your home. All visibility of your home to potential buyers is good.
5. Setting an Unrealistic Price
Setting the right price for hitting the market is key if you want to find the right buyer for your home. In a survey conducted by HomeLight.com, 70% of real estate agents said that over pricing is the TOP mistake that sellers make. On average, buyers see 8 -12 homes before choosing the right one for them. If your home checks all their boxes but is overpriced you may lose them. Not to mention, possible appraisal issues furter in the closing process.
