Location isn’t the only factor when it comes to selling your home. There are a number of other factors that you need to consider. These factors are easily overlooked which can lead to costly mistakes.

1. Incorrect Pricing of Your Home – This is the most common mistake. If you price your home too high it will make other properties appear to be a better value. Then you end up helping to sell your neighbors property instead of your own. On the other side, if you price your home too low you will end up sacrificing profit unnecessarily.

2. Not Preparing Your Home for Sale – When a potential buyer sees poor maintenance of a house it will lead them to wonder about other potential problems that they do not see. Clutter, poor curb appeal, a dirty house could prevent a buyer from falling in love with your home.

3. Effective Marketing – An experienced Real Estate agent knows how to do this properly. It starts with taking great photos of your home which highlight your homes best features. Also knowing the right balance between traditional and online marketing for your home.

4. Wrong Agent – Hiring a new, inexperienced agent will get you poor results. An experienced agent will know how to price, market, and negotiate on your behalf. They will also be able to help guide you through the logistical obstacles.

5. Details of a Sale Before an Offer – Many homeowners fail to agree to important details before they get an offer. Before putting your home on the market you should sit down with your agent and discus details such as closing date, and compromises you’re willing to make in order to close a deal.
