Are you having problems selling your house? Are potential buyers leaving instead of coming in bunches? Many homeowners make these common mistakes when trying to sell their house and end up having their house sit in real estate purgatory.
Pay Attention to Curb Appeal
Curb appeal is one of the first things that prospective home buyers see. If the front exterior looks nice, they will most likely schedule a viewing. Many people focus too much on the interior design rather than the outside. Prospects can’t magically warp into the inside of your house; they have to stroll through the front to get there. It’s essentially the first impression that your buyers will take with them.
If you are putting up a listing, make sure you put as many pictures as you can. The more you place up the better. A high quality camera wouldn’t hurt either. Many sellers will put a limited amount of photos thinking that alone will attract their buyer. Little do they know that four pictures don’t really do justice to your house.
Do Not Be There For The Showing
Being there at the showing does nothing but make the prospective buyer uncomfortable. There’s nothing more awkward than going into a viewing of the house and seeing the homeowner. Don’t let your buyers see you until your house has been closed.
Selling your house can be a difficult process. By avoiding the above mistakes, you will be one step closer to closing out your property.
