Is it possible to make mistakes when selling an Orange County home? Absolutely! One of the most common mistakes that homeowners make when selling a home in Orange County is agreeing on an offer for their home, even if they weren’t 100% satisfied with the negotiation process.
Before agreeing on a price, an orange county homeowner must make sure that they get everything in writing from the Realtor and are completely satisfied with the offer that they are accepting for their home because, once the offer has been accepted, and the sale has closed, the homeowner can’t go back in time and ask for more money for their home.
Pets That Greet At The Door
Another common mistake that many owners of homes in Southern California make, especially homeowners who have pets is letting their pets run free when potential homebuyers show up to tour the home.
If a homeowner has learned from their Real Estate Agent that people want to come by to check out their home, they should make every effort to put their pets into crates or have a family member pet sit them at their home. While most of us love our pets, potential homebuyers want to tour the home without having to be concerned with having pets in their way or encountering a pet that might be potentially dangerous.
Glossy Photos Don’t Always Pay Off
One common principle in marketing is taking glossy photos of products to help sell them but, this technique doesn’t always pay off when selling a home because, if the photo misrepresents the true condition of the home, the homeowner, might ultimately lose more potential buyers, and the ability to obtain multiple offers on their own, because, the home buyer would feel like they were deceived into coming to an open house to check out a home that didn’t live up to expectation.
