Here are just a few of the biggest mistakes home sellers make that you want to avoid:
- Pricing your home incorrectly
- Not preparing the home for the homebuyer’s eye
- Not getting a pre-approval for your next home
1. Pricing Your Home Wrong Can Cost You Thousands
If you’re selling your home, you’re probably wondering “how do you calculate house price?”
The wrong answer is to base your home’s selling price on the neighbor down the street or on Zillow’s® Zestimates. Neither takes into account unique features of your home such as renovations, new appliances, fresh paint, or other upgrades.
To get the most accurate price for your home sale, contact the Team at Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty – The Salas Team. We will do an in-home comparative analysis of your home. The comparative analysis will take into consideration home sales and listing prices of comparable homes in your area. From that information, we will set a listing price and a price for our Seller’s Guarantee. That Guarantee states that if you don’t sell your home within 120 days we will buy it from you in cash!
2. Not Preparing Your Home for the Homebuyer’s Eye
One of the most effective ways you can market your home is to prepare it for the homebuyer’s eye. This means making sure your home is in the best possible condition and is aesthetically pleasing to potential homebuyers.
Here are some simple tips on preparing your home for a showing:
- Do a deep clean of the house
- Declutter and organize
- Remove personal items like photographs
- Consider neutral paint colors
- Don’t forget curb appeal
- Make all needed repairs, even minor ones
- Eliminate odors from cooking and pets
3. Not Getting a Pre-Approval for Your Next Home
Another mistake homeowners make is not getting pre-approval for their next home. When a home seller is presented with multiple offers, one thing that can put your offer at the top of the pile is being pre-approved for financing.
Most lending institutions offer this as a free service. Even better, get your pre-approval in writing – it’s like money in the bank!
