Neglecting Property Condition

Homebuyers want a “consumer experience”. Ensure your home is well-maintained. Remove peeling paint, do minor repairs and touch-ups.


Incorrect Pricing Strategy

Avoid overpricing your home, or it will sit on the market longer. Consult with us on optimal pricing strategy.


Incomplete Disclosures

Be transparent about your property’s condition and any potential issues. Failure to disclose material facts can lead to legal troubles. We are experts at helping you manage your risk.


Ignoring Curb Appeal

The exterior of your home creates the first impression. Enhance curb appeal by maintaining a well-groomed lawn, clean entryway, and fresh paint if needed. A visually appealing exterior will attract more potential buyers.


Ignoring Legal Requirements

As a home seller, you are at risk of litigation from homebuyers. Know your obligations and rights.


Ignoring Market Trends

Stay informed about current market trends in your area. Pricing, demand, and seasonality can impact your home sale.


Overlooking Home Inspection

Conduct a pre-listing home inspection to identify and address potential issues beforehand. This proactive approach will instill confidence in buyers and prevent you from having to credit or make more repairs while in contract.


Inadequate Marketing

Develop a comprehensive marketing strategy to showcase your property. High-quality photos, virtual tours, and targeted online and offline advertising can significantly increase your home’s visibility and attract more buyers.


Poorly Timed Sale

Timing matters when selling a home. Consider the season, local economic conditions, and personal factors. Strategic timing can impact your selling price and the speed of the transaction.


Ignoring Feedback

Pay attention to feedback from potential buyers and real estate professionals. Address concerns, adjust your approach if necessary, and stay engaged in the selling process.
