Let's face it, the thought of selling your home can be overwhelming and stressful. You don't know where to start and you don't want to make costly mistakes.
There are many reasons why a home may sell within days, or sit on the market for an extended period of time. Our goal at the Anderson Bruni Real Estate Team is to Maximize the value of your home!
Often, important elements of the transaction can be overlooked when homeowners who lack the experience try to navigate the market on their own, or when they hire the wrong agent. Here is our list of the Top FIVE costly mistakes that sellers make.
One of the most common mistakes sellers make is pricing their homes too high or too low.
If your home is priced too high, it may sit on the market for much longer than you would have liked while buyers look at comparable properties that are priced more reasonably. On the flip side, if your home is priced too low, you might sacrifice potential profit.
Selling your home is an art that takes market conditions, demand, home condition and location into account. A good agent will take all of these factors into account when advising you on a pricing strategy.
Failing to Market the Property Effectively:
Effective marketing is a critical factor to successfully selling a home. Unfortunately, it is often poorly executed.
Successful marketing starts with taking great photos and video of your home to emphasize important features. Our Team realizes the importance of making your home look great, and prioritizes the right mix of traditional and online advertising so that your home can achieve Maximum Exposure.
Not Getting the Home Ready for Sale:
Another common mistake homeowners make is not preparing their home for sale. We at the Anderson Bruni Real Estate Team believe that Professional Home Staging is Vital to the sale of your home! Having a property in "model home" condition will not only maximize your home value but have it sell in a shorter period of time and be ahead of the competition in your area.
When a buyer discovers poor maintenance, it may lead them to wonder about other potential problems. Too much clutter, poor decorating choices, or a sub-par curb appeal can prevent the buyer from falling in love with your home.
Our Team provides an excluisve Professional Home Stager for all of our clients as well as Home Cleaning Services, Professional Painters, Home Contractors and so much more.
Hiring the Wrong Agent:
Inexperienced real estate agents increase the risk of poor results; knowledgeable agents increase the likelihood of success.
A good agent should be able to recommend the proper listing price for the current market. They should also be able to negotiate effectively on your behalf and help you navigate through the variety of logistical and legal obstacles.
Our Team has over 50 years of combined Real Estate experience in all market conditons to help you navigate through any tricky situation that may arise. Dont gamble on your largest investment - Experience Does Count!
Not Agreeing on Key Details:
Many homeowners make the mistake of failing to agree on important details of a sale before they get an offer.
To prevent this from happening, a good agent will work with you in advance to determine things like your required net proceeds from the sale, your ideal closing date, channels you will agree to and the compromises you need to make in order to close the deal.
