Selling your home isn't easy. Avoid these common slip ups that can cause your home to linger on the market.
Your Home Has an Odor
Whether it's leftover odors from cooking last night, pets, or stinky sneakers, believe your Realtor if they say there is a funny smell that needs to be removed. And don't try to cover it up with a candle!
Your Home is Too Personal
From custom paint colors like eggplant, to too many family mementos and photographs Realtors suggest not only decluttering your home, but also making it as neutral as possible.
You Turn Down Showings
If Buyers can't get in to see your home they aren't going to make an offer and your home will linger on the market. Be as flexible as possible and work with your Realtor to bring in Buyers.
You Hang out During the Open House
Buyers want to imagine themselves in your space, not be confronted by you in your space. It's awkward for them to tour your home, open closets and talk openly to their Realtor if you are in the next room.
