For many people, selling a home comes once in a lifetime while for others it can happen multiple times as they decide to sell their home and “trade up” to a bigger home or downsize to a smaller one.
Regardless of how many times a homeowner decides to sell their home, mistakes can happen and it’s important for a homeowner to be prepared for those mistakes before they occur and potentially lose them tens of thousands of dollars or the sale of the home all together.
Cleaning The House
One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make when selling a home in Orange County or anywhere else in the United States is not getting their home as clean as possible and this is a big problem because, when a potential homebuyer visits a messy home they will wonder what else is wrong with the house.
A clean home paint the mental image of a home that’s been taken care of and it’s important to paint many positive mental images in a homebuyers mind as possible so that homebuyer can see themselves living in the home.
Don’t Neglect Family Or Friends
In the marketing world the term “warm market” is widely used but sadly it’s not used often in the Real Estate market world because, homeowners tend to be focused on selling their home to people they don’t know.
When selling a home every homeowner should focus on telling their friends, family members, coworkers and associates first because, the homeowner will never know how might have been dreaming about buying their home unless they let their immediate warm market know.
Give Buyers Freedom To Move Around
Last of all, but most important, during an open house or whenever a potential buyer shows up, it’s important to give homebuyers freedom to move around and enjoy the features of the home instead of following them around from room to room.
Giving potential homebuyers freedom will enable them to see themselves living in the home and if a homeowner can let a potential homebuyer dream a little, this is the first step to finding the right buyer for a home.
