For the first-timers, selling a home can really be a daunting process. A lot of people who do not have experience or slight knowledge are sure to make a lot of blunders.

Selling a home is easier because there are a great variety of tools and portals that will help you do it online. These websites and links give you in-depth information on homes, neighbourhoods, their prices and a lot more. 

As easy as it sounds, it can also get very difficult because a new seller will have access to much information that will leave them in a dilemma of what should be done and whatnot. 

Here are some of the common mistakes sellers make and how can they be tackled.

 

 

  • Don’t Underestimate The Cost Of Selling

 

The total cost to sell a home can be 5-6% in agent commissions most people expect to pay and the selling price can be closer to 10% of the sale price. 

A home that’s priced correctly in terms of market price is a home that is priced to sell. With this said, you’ll be likely to get legitimate offers and sell your house at what you’re asking for.

 

 

  • Your Listing Pictures Aren’t Great

 

As the saying goes, the first impression is always the last impression so ensure that the pictures attached to your listing are of good quality. Posting pictures that are of bad quality can make potential buyers lose their interest.

Don’t jeopardize the process of selling your home by failing to optimize your home. If you fail to avoid these common errors, it will cost you big in time, money and stress. 

 

 

  • If You Haven’t Hired An Agent

 

It is important to hire an agent who will help you in every step of the process of selling your home. They help you set a fair and competitive selling price for your home that will increase your odds of a quick sale. 

These real estate agents have years of experience and knowledge and know well how to negotiate on selling a home than you do. They potentially help you get more money than you could actually do on your own.

 

  • Selling Your Home Before You’re Even Ready

It is an exciting and thrilling feeling to know that you’ll be selling your old home and shifting to a new home but it takes a lot of your mental, emotional and physical strength that goes on for weeks and months until you’re ready.

Before you hang a ‘For Sale’ signboard, ensure to talk and take guidance from your family, friends and neighbours. List down the ‘pros and cons’ to weigh the alternatives. Be very sure about selling your home.

Selling a home can be really tricky and as tough as solving a Rubik’s cube but again it is easier when you’ve made up your mind and have done your homework well.

A home seller who avoids these common pitfalls is sure to have a successful home selling experience. 

You can hire the services of an experienced and well-trained agent to guide you throughout the entire process.
