Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving into a new home but before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your current home. The decision is a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment.

LEARN THE LINGO AND UNDERSTAND REAL ESTATE TERMINOLOGY
1. Pricing The Home Incorrectly The number one home seller mistake is overpricing. There is nothing that will stop a home from selling more than the wrong price. You may love your home and see it as one of the best houses out there. You might have a lot of good memories of your home, memories that leave you feeling like there is so much to appreciate about the property.
But it is important to remember that no matter how you feel about your home, the market is still the deciding factor in how much you can get for it. You have to price the house according to the market—failing to do so could leave you with a listing that sits for months or longer.
2. Failing to Prepare The Home For Sale While some sellers think the world of their homes, others are only willing to do the bare minimum to complete a sale. The bare minimum—putting up a listing and wishing for the best—is not going to get you great results.
Instead, you should put forth your best effort to present an attractive, desirable piece of real estate. First impression matters and a great image requires a clean, well-maintained home. If there are obvious issues that need to be fixed, fix them.
3. Selling Before You Are Ready To Do So Even when everything goes well, including having a great agent and selling for a reasonable price, it’s is still hard work. It takes time and energy. It involves stress. It requires finding a new place to live, whether you rent or buy.
It means packing up and moving all your stuff. There is a lot to the process. If you are not prepared for a significant life change, then selling your home may be something you should wait on. Do your research and be clear about what you are facing before you take the leap.
4. Not Telling The Truth About Your Home Homes are made up of a lot of different components. Some of these components are going to fail over time. It can be really tempting to try to divert attention from problem areas of your home to make your sale go easier.
In the pressure of the actual sales process, it can even be tempting to lie to make the sale and get it over with. But failing to be honest with buyers has a considerable chance of backfiring on you. It could kill your sale. It could lead to a lawsuit. Proper disclosures are super important when selling a house.
5. Not Being Flexible With Showings Not Being Flexible on Showings is a Mistake! I am going to be very clear about this – a missed showing is a missed opportunity. One of the more common home selling mistakes is not letting buyers in when they request a showing. Sure there are going to be times when showings are going to be difficult. You have a family and a life. Sometimes they get in the way.
If you want to sell your home, however, in the shortest amount of time for the most money, let the buyers come on their schedule!
6. Hoping For Too Much, Too Quickly Another problem home sellers run into is expecting the sales process to go through quickly and painlessly. The reality is that with such a significant transaction—typically involving a buyer having to borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars—there are almost always hiccups.
Paperwork may not go through as quickly as you expect. Deals can fall through. Buyers can back out. Inspections can show something you were completely unaware of—something you have to fix to get the sale. You need to prepare yourself for some frustrations.
7. Not Being Flexible in Negotiations It is common for buyers to try and negotiate better terms before they agree to purchase. The conditions may or may not involve taking less money for the house than you wanted to. It is important that you listen to me as your agent, I can help explain the difference between a good deal and a bad one.
