Lisa VirkusHere are Team Virkus’ 6 Things Not to Do When Selling Your Home or Investment Property:

  1. Not Preparing for an Open House – Before you have an open house your home should be very clean and free of clutter. Make sure to take the time to do so. The open house could be the one shot you get at a potential buyer that takes the time to see your home.
  2. Picking the Wrong Agent – A good agent will know the current facts about your neighborhood such as price of the homes for sale and the upgrades in the homes. Trust me on this one. Don’t just hire a friend or family member. Make sure the agent you hire has the knowledge to get it done… Click here to learn about the Top 10 Mistakes When Hiring a Realtor.
  3. Staying in Your Home During the Open House or a Showing – You shouldn’t be in your home while the realtor is showing your house. This makes buyers very uncomfortable. Some sellers want to be there so they can explain everything about the house. This is your agents job.
  4. Bad Marketing – It’s a good idea to do more than just put a for sale sign in the yard. Click here to learn more tips on marketing your home.
  5. Taking Bad Photographs – Taking good photos of your home is very important because many buyers search for a home online.
  6. Listing Your Home at the Wrong Price – If your home is priced too high you probably won’t get any offers and when your priced too low you will lose money.
