#SellerTips🏡⠀ Below are the 7 deadly home seller sins. Chances are, it’s one of these 7 sins that are preventing the sale of your home. The good news? They’re not too hard to correct.⠀ ⠀ 1️⃣ Overpricing.⠀ ⠀ Buyers are looking for a house at fair market value. If yours is overpriced you won’t even get buyers in the door for showings, much less an offer.⠀ ⠀ 2️⃣ Picking the wrong REALTOR®.⠀ ⠀ Your REALTOR® is your best ally when it comes to selling your home. If you choose a REALTOR® who is inexperienced, overworked, or dispassionate, you’re going to have a weak ally.⠀ ⠀ 3️⃣ Ignoring curb appeal.⠀ ⠀ First impressions are everything and they are made quickly. In the case of selling a home, curb appeal is the first impression that you get to make to buyers. It’s a snapshot of what buyers can expect to see inside. If it’s a mess outside then it’s likely prospective buyers won’t want a tour of the inside.⠀ ⠀ 4️⃣ Failing to stage.⠀ ⠀ There are different levels of staging a home, including hiring a professional home stager. In most cases, a pro can offer a lot of help that can get your house sold quicker and for more money.⠀ ⠀ 5️⃣ Failing to clean before showings.⠀ ⠀ Send a positive message to buyers that your house is beautiful and well-maintained by keeping it clean for showings.⠀ ⠀ 6️⃣ Your home smells.⠀ ⠀ A smelly home is a real turn-off for home buyers. Just like a dirty home, a smelly home sends a bad message to buyers.⠀ ⠀ 7️⃣ Staying for showings.⠀ ⠀ Buyers need to feel comfortable walking around your house. If you are around for this process, buyers will feel rushed and awkward.⠀ ⠀ Were you able to identify which deadly home seller sins you are committing, or do you need more advice?
