Three Biggest Mistakes in Home Selling


Selling a home to a homebuyer is not an
easy task; it will take a lot of price
surveying, open houses, detailed
negotiations, and a handful of rejections.
Whether you are a homeowner decided to
sell your house or a real estate agent,
given the current context in housing market
trends, home selling is a tough job. But
of course, if you want to succeed in the
business of real-estate, there are avoidable
mistakes that you must know of. Here are
the top three biggest mistakes in home
selling.




Price the Home Correctly

Overpricing a home will not help you at all. Homebuyers tend to be driven away by a real estate agent
asking for too much money. Homebuyers will not make time to visit an overpriced house. Moreover, a
house staying in a market for too long is a house of lower market value. Note that setting too low house
prices might also inflict suspicions among your clients. Too low house prices can also insult and infuriate
potential buyers. A true home seller values his buyers and tends to give reasonable prices based on
 substantial research on current housing market demands. Pricing a house requires a deliberate analysis of
market movements, housing supply and demand, and neighborhood characteristics.

Improve the Condition

Houses in bad condition are shrugged off by potential buyers. If you want to have a competitive house
in the market, make sure that it is in good condition. During open houses, make sure that the sheets are
sanitary, rooms are clean, floorings and roofs are fixed, and general appearance of the house is pleasant.
Buyers have the tendency to avoid houses with deferred maintenance, so better to do quick repairs when
selling your house. If you do not have the intention to do repair and uplift maintenance of the house you
are selling, be prepared to consider an unsatisfying price for your house. Remember that most of the
homebuyers prefer to buy a ready to move-in house. Avoid putting your house on the market when it is
still unready because a good presentation is everything- it is necessary to make it marketable and pleasing to
any home buyers




Strong Marketing

Strong marketing strategies are needed when selling a house and most real estate agents and home sellers
forget this basic requirement. Just like any business a good marketing plan attracts investors so as in home
selling, an attractive and aggressive marketing strategy boosts sales in no time. Be creative in
developing your marketing campaign. Sellers must also expose their houses to a large pool of buyers. As
buyers are visual, produce nice, up-close, and angled photographs of the home you are selling- the front
area, the exterior area, and the interior area. Make virtual tours of the house exciting and/ or you can put up
a website dedicated to the house. If your budget permits, Signage and print advertisement are also a lot of
help. Good mouth from your previous customers and from your professional networks is also needed.
