If you want to get this kind of fantastic deal for your home, there are five crucial home-selling mistakes you need to avoid:

Mistake No. 1: Overpricing your property. Yes, you can overprice your home in a seller’s market. The truth is that buyers have access to a lot of information about your local market. They can use the internet to look at how much money other properties have sold for in your area, so they know what a good market value is. 

Mistake No. 2: Not making simple repairs. I’m talking about the little things that stick out when buyers are looking at your home. If they find a few problems, they’ll start looking for more. Keep your buyer at ease and fix little issues before listing your property.

“If buyers find one unfinished repair, they’ll start looking for more.”

Mistake No. 3: Neglecting to declutter. I can’t emphasize this enough. You want your buyers to focus on your home, not your stuff. 

Mistake No. 4: Restricting access to your property. Your home should be ready to show at all times. The more activity and excitement you generate, the better deal you’ll receive for your home. 

Mistake No. 5: Picking the wrong agent. Your agent should actively listen to your wants and needs so they can create an action plan. A good agent will give you the information you need to make the right decisions for you and your family.
