Avoid These Common Seller Mistakes

Now that home prices have been rising, and buyers are getting off the sidelines (particularly as interest rates creep up), you may be more inclined to list your home — finally! Just make sure you do it the right way:

Price home to sell - A recent poll shows that 75 percent of homeowners think their agent’s listing price is too low! If you’re trying to cash in on the momentum that’s been building, and you think that a higher price is the answer, think again.

Think: Web appeal - Glam up your house for pictures before you post your listing online, as that’s where 90 percent of buyers start their search — on the Web!

Professional photos sell! - The bottom line is that low-quality photos make bad first impressions.

Choose the right agent - When it comes to selling your home — probably the most expensive thing you own — some sellers will hire a friend, a relative who does real estate part time or the agent who is asking for the lowest commission rate.

Consider early offers - Once a property is marketed, it typically gets attention right away — in the first few weeks!
