Mistakes Sellers Make
Sellers commonly make bad decisions that result in seller’s remorse. They include
only one grainy photograph of their home on flyers and Internet ads. They hire and
inexperienced real estate agent who is unfamiliar with the neighborhoods and current
Another mistake sellers commonly makes is getting too emotionally involved in the
process. It’s best to think of your home as a commodity, not an extension of yourself
as a person. Excessive emotional attachment may lead you to overprice the house,
another major mistake sellers make.
Trying to sell a home when it’s messy, cluttered, or in a state of disrepair is
another big mistake. Quick fixes and repairs can boost your sale price, and expedite
the process, without any major investment. So don’t list your home until it’s clean,
clutter-free, and well-maintained.
