Real Estate Tips From a New Homeowner


Don't Make These Common Seller Mistakes

As a home owner, you may have considered trying to sell your home at several parts of your life. If you are thinking about selling, you may first wonder how you can avoid making serious mistakes.

These tips will help you get the most for your home and avoid making a major mistake that could impact the selling of your home.

Mistake: Getting Too Emotional

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is becoming too emotional about your home. Even though you may love your home, becoming emotional can put you in the position not to make the best decisions for your home. It can be more beneficial to see your home the same way a business person would.

Mistake: Not Timing the Sell Correctly

Did you know that there is a harder time to sell your home? You may actually struggle to sell your home during the winter holidays because people are so busy. You may have a better time selling your home by preparing it to sell in the spring or summer months.

Mistake: Hiding Things

One of the biggest disservices you can do for yourself and potential buyers is to hide things from potential buyers. Make it clear upfront when something might have a defect, as it is likely to be found out during an inspection.

Mistake: Setting an Unrealistic Price

Pricing your home is a science. If you price your home too high, it is going to sit on the market for a long time. Count on your real estate agent to provide you with information regarding the best pricing for your home.

Mistake: Not Taking Good Photos

Photos also impact your listing, and a poor set of pictures can leave your home on the market for a long time. Pictures that have poor lighting and that do not completely show off the beauty of the home can have a negative impact.

Mistake: Only Taking the Asking Price

It is also important to consider other offers. Depending on the housing market in your area, your asking price may be the maximum price you can expect, and you may have to consider the market before you decline lower offers.

Mistake: Not Working With a Real Estate Agent

Real estate agents are aware of the mistakes sellers make when they are trying to sell their homes. It is important that you understand how to work with a real estate agent so that you can get the most money possible for your home. Set up a consultation today to learn more about selling your home.

Real Estate Tips from a New Homeowner

While some people "wing it" when purchasing their first home, I went about the process differently. I put a lot of research into home market trends before even deciding where I would like my new home to be located and learned about all of the steps of the buying process. Once I was ready to start looking at homes, I hired a real estate agent who was very impressed with all the knowledge I had accumulated about the home-buying process before I even owned my first home! I love learning, so I actually greatly enjoyed learning all about real estate, and I am still keeping on top of the latest real estate news and trends since I know they will come in handy when I decide to upgrade into a larger home in the future. I decided to help others by sharing what I have learned on a blog!
