4 Things Home Sellers Should Avoid When Selling Their House.
Written by Chris Logan on October 25th, 2017
There are many different reasons you may be considering selling your house, and no matter what those reasons are there are things you should avoid doing if you want to be able to sell your home in a timely manner. For some home sellers being able to sell their home quickly is important due to a number of factors. Even if you are not in this situation, chances are that you don't want to have to wait many months to SELL YOUR HOME.
The following: 4 Things That Home Sellers Should Avoid When Selling Their Home.
1. Not Properly Preparing Your Home To Be Sold
The majority of home sellers would like to get their home sold quickly, however most don't invest the time to prepare the house before selling. Whether you are selling to a cash buyer or listing your home for sale, having it look it's best will enable you to get the best possible price for it. Spending a little time and money now making minor repairs, painting, and cleaning your home is an investment that will usually pay for itself many times over. On the other hand, if you're looking for a hassle-free house sale and don't want to be bothered with fixing up your property an selling your house for cash might just be the best option for you.
2. Asking Too Much For Your Home
Another common mistake home sellers make is placing too high of a dollar value on their house. Sometimes it can be easy to assume that because a neighbors house sold for X price, that yours will too. This is a common misconception and a variety of reasons why certain houses can demand a much higher asking price than others. Maybe you've lived in the home for years and it has sentimental value, but that doesn't translate to actual monetary value. If you price your home too high above market value you are going to have a hard time attracting people to view your home. You will also run into problems if you are dealing with a company that makes cash offers for houses since they won't want to pay above market value.
3. Trying To Sell Your Home In A Buyer's Market
There are situations where you can't really afford to wait for a more favorable housing market, and if that's the case then you probably can't be too picky about when selling your house. What is a buyer's market? The simple explanation is that it's a buyer's market when there are more houses for sale than there are people buying them. This drives housing prices down. Obviously, home sellers want to avoid selling their home if at all possible when the market has driven their home's value down. So if you aren't in a hurry to sell your home it's in your best interest to be patient and wait a little while to see if the housing market shifts to your favor.
4. Being Offended By A Low Offer For Your Home
After listing your home it's not uncommon for you to receive offers for it that are below your asking price. In fact, due to the condition of your property, these offers may likely be on the lower end of what you're expecting. The important thing to do here is to take emotion out of the equation and to not get offended. Instead, you could respond with a counteroffer, then with a little luck, you and the buyer may be able to agree to a price you are both happy with.
