Below are the five biggest mistakes fighting homeowners make when selling their residence. I will also show you a few foolproof home-selling tactics that will get you the maximum sticker price for your residence.
Making small price reductions over and over
Nothing beats of desperation more than incremental cost drops. The more times the cost is cut, the staler the offering looks. Buyers reason that a good deal of people should have seen it and a great deal of people should have rejected it. And if this is true, then why even bother to think about it?
Instead, slash the purchase price. Learn what your property is worth by looking at comparable properties in the area and cost it 10% under them. If you are able to be both, you’re offload yours in no time whatsoever.
There are many methods of finding a good agent. If a person outside the real estate industry with nothing to gain is bringing up a broker, you can be fairly sure you are on to a winner. The top agents — the top 10 percent — do 90 percent of all of the business. You need someone with drive and enthusiasm, a person who will provide you the attention you want and steer you through the entire messy process with professionalism and courtesy.
Waiting it out
If you choose to wait, you’re joining the thousands of other homeowners who have decided to wait. When a few decide it is time to take the plunge, you’re already too late. If you need/want to market now, then sell today. There’ll never be a better time.
Showing your home before you get rid of your clutter
You would not try to sell your car without first clearing it out, do you? Trying to sell your home when it’s filled with clutter is the exact same thing. People do not see enchanting family mementos and sexy bric-a-brac; they see visual sound, like empty soda cans and banana peels strewn on the back seat of a Chevy. The buyer doesn’t need to see your home; they would like to see their home of the future. Locate a temporary home for all your cherished possessions and allow the home speak for itself.
