Avoid These Home Selling Mistakes
& Make More Money

During my years in real estate I've noticed some common home selling mistakes being played out, time and time again.  These mistakes are always costly to the homeowner or seller who makes them, but are usually avoidable with the right 'advance' planning. 


Preparation Is Huge

Quite a number of home sellers make mistakes through a combination of poor real estate advice, and inadequate sale preparations.  Below, are examples of the most common home selling mistakes.


Some Common Mistakes

  • No marketing plan, or one that is ineffective.
  • House is not staged or prepared, prior to the initial marketing push.  
  • Pricing strategy that cannot succeed, and will cost more via holding costs.  
  • Failure to organize and use an effective online marketing campaign.
  • Poorly negotiated contract that allows the buyer to control the negotiations and increase seller risks.
  • Playing hardball on smaller issues with the most qualified buyer. 
  • Not hiring the most experienced and qualified real estate agent to represent the property listing.


Many Agents To Choose From

Sellers often choose less qualified real estate agents to market their properties, because they just don't know what to ask or what to look for.  Many unqualified agents simply revolve in and out of the real estate industry door each and every year, because this business has an extremely high turnover rate. 

Hiring less-than-experienced agents who have minimal track records, can lead to frustrating real estate experiences or failed transactions.  If a buyer does eventually reach the closing table, the seller may then realize that their sale transaction could have been a lot less stressful, and perhaps more profitable.
