5 Mistakes Sellers Make

5 Mistakes Home Sellers Make

Nicole Nellis Cockrell discusses the 5 mistakes home sellers most commonly make. 

How much is your home worth?

Not Making Repairs

A well-maintained home tends to attract more potential buyers. When your property is in good condition, it creates a positive impression and generates greater interest among prospective buyers. This increased interest can lead to a larger pool of potential buyers and potentially result in a quicker sale.

Not Staging Home

Staging your home can help you highlight its best features. If you have a beautiful fireplace, you can arrange furniture around it to draw attention to it. If you have a spacious backyard, you can add some outdoor furniture to create a welcoming outdoor living space. Staging can help potential buyers see the full potential of your home.

Pricing Too High

Pricing your home too high can lead to an extended time on the market. The longer your home sits unsold, the more likely buyers and real estate professionals will perceive it as undesirable or overpriced. Additionally, an extended listing period can create a sense of urgency among buyers, leading them to negotiate for lower prices or wait for further price reductions.

Ignoring Feedback

Ignoring feedback is a key mistake amongst sellers. If it's something that can be fixed, we always want to fix it and your real estate agent should be consistently looking for feedback on your home's behalf to ensure there isn't anything being missed unnecessarily.
