Steer clear to Attract buyers & expedite time on market!

1.) Dirty, cluttered homes.

  • Spotless for showings.

  • The name of the game = curb appeal. From the outside in.

  • Explore staging options & professional photography.

2.) Wallpaper.

  • “Universal truth: homebuyers hate wallpaper.”

  • Replace with neutral-colored paintjob.

  • Open canvas for buyers to make home their own!

3.) Hovering Sellers.

  • Do not attend open houses & private showings.

  • Buyers not necessarily comfortable directly conversing with seller.

  • Professional realtors best-suited for this environment.

  • Bottom line: your realtor is best advocate for home’s details & strengths.

4.) Misleading listing photos.

  • Balance is key here.

  • Wide-angles & camera tricks often deceive buyer expectations.

  • Present your home in its best light > ‘ideal’ light.

5.) Overpricing.

  • Buyers want value.

  • Partner with realty professional who understands market conditions.

  • Utilize comparable homes [for sale or recently sold], as pricing references.

  • Adapt to market conditions [ex. seasonal, bear/bull market, mortgage rates].
