Mistakes Sellers Make When They Sell a House

Not all sellers opt to sell a house through an estate agent. Many homeowners try to sell their own houses, sometimes successfully, but not always. Whichever way it goes, there are some typical mistakes sellers make when they try to sell a house.

The Most Common Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling a House

Because sellers are not trained in real estate, they don’t always understand the industry. And because sellers are subjective about the property they are selling, this often affects important decisions in terms of value and price.

But that’s not all. Because sellers are not trained or educated in real estate, they often do opt for assistance from an estate agent. But this same lack of training and education in the industry all too often leads to bad choices. Not all agents are created equal, and some will produce better results than others who try to sell a house. It’s important to work with an experienced estate agent who knows how to determine home values in your area, and ultimately, how to sell a house like yours.

Why Experience Matters When Selling a House

Trained estate agents with experience know that to sell a house, they need to price it right. Most times sellers want more money than their homes are worth, which leads to one of the worst mistakes sellers make: overpricing their property. Leading from this, sellers often choose an estate agent who is willing to market their home at this unrealistically high price. Unfortunately this doesn’t mean the agent will be well equipped to actually sell a house.

It has been said that pricing a house for sale is part science, part art. It does involve comparing the house with others in the same area, and determining what the market is likely to pay. But near-perfect appraisals only come with the experience of selling a house.

So to avoid the mistakes sellers make much too often, engage a qualified estate agent who really does know to sell a house, and who will help you to achieve the best possible price.
