Making the decision to move is always a big one especially when you’re selling one home to buy another. Depending on whether or not the market is in your favour at the time there are a number of mistakes home sellers often make that can see them lose the opportunity to move into their dream home.
In this two-part post we will look at six mistakes home owners should avoid when selling their homes.
Make sure you do your research and put your house on the market for the right amount. It might be tempting to overinflate the price of your home but if the price is too high for the area you won’t receive many offers, if any, which could delay your own move to your new dream home. Similarly, under-pricing your home sends the wrong signals to potential property buyers as they may view the property as problem.
Not having a place to live
Many homeowners make the mistake of putting their property on the market without lining up somewhere to live. If you haven’t found a new place to call home its essential that you add a clause to your sale agreement that says the sale is dependent on whether or not, you have a place to live afterward, otherwise you may find yourself on the street.
Showing a cluttered home
Once you start the showing process ensure that your house is junk free because there is a big difference between a home that’s lived in and one that’s a mess. Many estate agents suggest having your home cleaned by a professional to remove junk, clutter, debris, and garbage from the home and the yard.
