Home Seller-Don’t Lose The Sale!

You are ready to move and have found the perfect home for you and your family.  The only thing left to do is to sell your current home.  Sounds simple right?  Well, it can be, but there are several things that you may be doing that are making your buyers run for the door.

Here are a few surefire ways to lose the sale
Keep reading so you don’t make these common mistakes

• Make sure you are not at home while your buyer is viewing your house.  Don’t take this personally.  A buyer will not feel comfortable with you around because they cannot envision themselves living in your home – they will see you living in your home.   The buyer will not be comfortable opening the drawers and closets.  Additionally, your buyer will not feel comfortable talking about what they would like to change about your home in fear of offending you.  The buyer doesn’t need you lurking around hanging on to their every word.  Give them the space they need to fall in love with your house.

• Keep your home in tip top shape.  Showing a messy home is a surefire deal breaker.  The buyer may see your messy home and assume that you have not taken care of the routine home maintenance either.   When we say clean – we do not mean stuff everything in the closet – the buyer will be looking there also.  We know your busy and with kids and pets it’s hard to keep your house spotless for possibly months at a time.  So talk to your family and have a plan to keep everything as neat and orderly as possible.

• Do not overprice your home thinking that you can lower the price later.  It is a buyers’ market right now.  Your buyer has a multitude of homes to choose from and if you overprice your home, potential buyers will not even stop to consider yours, they will be onto the next one that they don’t have to work so hard to get.  Talk with your realtor to go over fair market values for your area before deciding on a price.  You don’t want to lose out on a serious buyer just because of a few pricing mis-conceptions.

Any good real estate agent will be able to help you and guide you through the entire sales process from start to finish.  So take advantage of their knowledge and the tools they have available to them to help you sell your home quickly.
