There aren’t nearly enough resources out there for home sellers to take advantage of. So today, we’ll be sharing five common but critical mistakes that sellers should avoid when it comes time to list:

1. Pricing your home too high. There are three ways you can price your home. You can price it above market value and hope a buyer comes around, you can price it at market value and take advantage of the buzz that generates, or you can price it below market value and drum up a bidding war. Typically, pricing at or below market value is the best strategy. Pricing too high puts you at risk of eventually selling at 5% to 10% below market value.

2. Not hiring a real estate agent. Many sellers assume they can save money by forgoing an agent. However, a commission fee is a small price to pay for the services an agent provides. They’re marketing experts who do much more than put a sign in your yard. The best Realtors today utilize cutting-edge techniques to earn top dollar for your home.

3. Not making home improvements. Before listing, sellers should do whatever it takes to make their property shine. Decluttering, cleaning, and staging can go a long way—if your home doesn’t make a good first impression, you won’t command the price you deserve.

4. Not ordering a pre-listing inspection. Ordering an inspection prior to listing allows you to identify and resolve issues ahead of time. On top of this, having an inspection report ready for buyers to review can expedite the entire process. If you have a condo, order a status certificate for the same effect.

5. Being present for showings. Buyers may not be comfortable expressing their honest opinions if they know you’re lurking nearby. During a showing, it’s best for sellers to be gone altogether.

5 Reasons You Should Embrace the Winter Home Selling Season

If you’re a home seller, don’t let winter deter you from putting your home on the market. Here are five reasons why the winter is actually a great time to sell your home:

1. Buyers are as serious as you are. With the holiday season in full swing, it’s a busy time of year. If someone’s out touring homes right now, odds are they want to buy quickly. 

2. Buyers care less about a home’s days on market. Because there are fewer active buyers on the market, their motivation for finding a house is higher. The superficial reasons they might have for not buying a home in the spring don’t apply this time of year. 

3. You won’t compete against as many buyers for your next house. If you’re not shopping for homes during the hotter spring months, you won’t have as hard of a time finding your next ideal home. There being fewer buyers also means it would be easier for you to negotiate while having a contingency that your own home sells.



If someone’s out touring homes right now, odds are they want to buy quickly.


4. You’ll get a realistic sense of listing price. As you’re prepping your home for the market, you’ll see other nearby listings that are priced in-line with recent sales in order to attract the right buyers. Just follow their lead and market your home at the price it’s worth based on recent sales of comparable properties. 

5. Spring is just a few months away. If you can’t find a buyer during the winter months, spring is right around the corner, and it’s bound to bring plenty of eager buyers to the market. As long as you keep your home staged and well maintained, buyers who haven’t viewed your listing yet will want to consider all of their options. 

As I always tell my seller clients, you don’t catch fish unless you throw a lure into the pond.
