Selling Your House? Don't Do These Things!
It’s easy to be lax about selling your home. There’s too many times when we go into homes all around Spokane where simple things could have been done to make the home show even better. Don't make these home sale mistakes:
1. Don't Overprice: While it's common knowledge that you should price your home competitively, some sellers still overprice their homes, hoping for a higher profit. An out-of-the-box approach would be to price your home slightly below market value to generate more interest and potentially spark a bidding war. This can lead to a quicker sale and possibly a higher final selling price.
2. Don't Neglect Home Styling: Traditional advice suggests staging your home to make it look its best. Going beyond this, you might consider hiring a professional designer or even renting high-end furniture and decor to create a unique and memorable atmosphere that sets your home apart from others on the market.
3. Don't Hire An Agent Who Uses "Old School" Marketing: Your agent should be using creative marketing strategies. For example, social media that is dedicated to your home's sale, produce a high-quality video tour, or even host unique events or open houses to attract potential buyers.
4. Don't Hide Flaws: Rather than concealing or downplaying your home's flaws, consider being upfront about them. Provide a comprehensive disclosure statement that includes any known issues or needed repairs. This honesty can build trust with potential buyers and help prevent complications during the negotiation process or after the sale.
5. Don't Be Afraid To Offer Incentives: Offer incentives to sweeten the deal for potential buyers. For instance, you could include furniture or lawn eqiupment in the sale, offer to cover the closing costs, or even provide a rate buy down as part of the purchase. These incentives can make your property stand out in a competitive market.
