Selling a home is an exciting part of life but in the Real Estate industry there is such a thing as good advice and bad advice.
In today’s post we will cover some of the worst Real Estate you can get so you can know the right direction to take when selling your home.
Worst Advice – Sell Your Home “As Is”
Although you can definitely sell your home “as is” this will also means you face the real possibility of accepting less money for your home. If there are major repairs which have to be made most home buyers will submit a lower offer since they know what those home repairs will cost to make when they move in, not to mention added time to address them.
Worst Advice – Don’t Stage Your Home
By not staging your home to sell you face the potential of losing offers.
Homes which have too much furniture, personal items and clutter tend to look smaller than they actually are and this makes it harder for a potential home buyer to envision themselves buying and ultimately living in your home in the future.
Worst Advice – Leave Your Personal Items Visible
Yes, you may be trying to sell your home which has memories around every corner but those memories can be distracting to many home buyers.
When selling a home make sure you remove personal marks left over the years as well as personal items like family photos or artwork since you want a buyer to see the home as a “product which is ready for sale.
