MISTAKE #1: Setting your asking price too high because of personal need or emotion, unfortunately this opens up the potential for your house to sit on the market for months, and will likely end up selling for less than fair market value.


MISTAKE #2: Failing to showcase your home through highlighting its best features and minimizing its faults, results in buyers not being able to imagine themselves in your home.


MISTAKE #3: Taking advice from well meaning friends and family and neglecting to follow the advice of a stager, home inspector, or REALTOR®,  the professionals that do this day in and day out for a living, results in longer market time and less sales price.


MISTAKE #4: Choosing a REALTOR® for the wrong reasons. For example, listing a home with a REALTOR® whose primary criteria is that they work for the most popular company in town. You could end up working with a REALTOR® with no expertise selling in your specific neighborhood and a low consumer ranking.


MISTAKE #5: Not knowing your legal rights and obligations. Contracts are binding, and neglected details can wind up costing you thousands of dollars.
