Your Real Estate Agent didn’t take high quality Photos of your home

Your Real Estate Agent didn’t take high quality Photos of your home – Dark lit photos, toilet lids up, pets running through the photo, you in the photo, few photos and just plain, awful photos won’t get Buyers into your home. They’ll skip over your home and keep hunting for the well photographed home.

You never knew your Real Estate Agent took poor quality photos – What you never knew?! Didn’t you ask to see your home’s presentation? Even without you asking, your Real Estate Agent should show you the finished product of your home’s online presentation. So many of the photos that I come across when I’m searching for homes for sale for my Buyers in Coral Springs Florida are disgraceful, while I’m just shocked at the pathetic photo presentations. I’m confident that the homeowners have no idea of how poorly their home looks otherwise, they’d fire their Agent. Your home should look so good that you almost second guess your decision to sell, as you’ll want to buy your home all over again.

You were bullheaded – Bullheaded and difficult to manage can be most common in people however, when you’re selling your home it cannot be about your way or the highway. Agreement will be a manner in which great results can be achieved. Give a little, take a little.

You didn’t make sure prospective Buyers were well qualified financially to buy your home – When considering a Buyer’s offer to purchase your home, you’ll want to scrutinize their financing qualifications, if financing. Ensure that their credit, income and assets have been reviewed. Ask your Real Estate Agent, as they should be making sure this occurs with each Buyer’s offer.

You didn’t neutralize those bold, bright colors in your home – Some may adore bright and bold colors, however the masses are attracted to neutrals knowing they can add their own pizazz, if desired. Finding Buyers who have the exact same bold tastes as you will be limited. Why would you ever want to limit the number of Buyers drawn to your home? Don’t.

You thought the correct selling price for your home was as per Zillow – Oh, the age old Zillow estimate. If I had a dollar for every time someone referenced what Zillow says about prices, I’d be along side the riches of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. Zillow will never replace the skilled Real Estate Agent who knows how to price homes. It involves so much more than Zillow’s algorithms to get it right.

You didn’t trust your Real Estate Agent – Never can you have a solid relationship without trust. You must have complete trust and faith in your Real Estate Agent, if you’re going to have any kind of success in getting your home sold.

You forgot to clean up the dishes in the Kitchen before you left for work – Can’t do it. Selling a home involves a bit more work in keeping your home neat. If it involves having to get up 10 minutes early each day in order to allow extra time to care for your breakfast dishes before leaving for work, then you have to get up earlier. The one day you leave the dishes in the sink will be the day that 3 Buyers will want to visit your home. A messy home can signal to a Buyer that you don’t care about your home, which results in no offer or a reduced offering price as they anticipate possible underlying issues.

You hired a “yes maam/sir” Real Estate Agent

You like to make others sweat – Selling a home isn’t an all out, beat down the other party event. It’s more about being amicable. Play nice. After you sell your home, you can go back to making others sweat.

You hired a “yes maam/sir” Real Estate Agent – You should expect direction and expertise from your Real Estate Agent. An Agent agreeing with everything you say isn’t showing you any value. Now is not the time to have a “yes maam/sir” on your side. Sure you need someone fighting for you but it must come with Real Estate expertise to guide you, otherwise, why do you need them?!

You didn’t declutter your home – Decluttering a home means to remove the excess, the overflowing and the things that take away from the beautiful bones of your home. This means bare Kitchen and Bathroom counter tops. In the Kitchen we could see a Coffee or Tea pot. If you’re a morning toast person, you can keep the Toaster out, otherwise hide it away. In your Bathrooms, remove all toiletries and keep out only a few decorative items. Overstuffed closets is a no-no too. Pack and put in storage if you have to, in order to free up space in your home. No Buyer wants to see a home that’s stuffed to the brim, as it clearly screams that it wouldn’t accommodate their belongings.

You didn’t stage your home – Staging a home isn’t always about having to hire a professional Stager as you can accomplish this if your Real Estate Agent knows how to make your home feel. The rooms in your home need to portray a clear visible use and focal point. Make sure that the furniture layout flows nicely and that you appeal to the Buyer’s senses.

Your home wasn’t priced right – This is usually the #1 mistake made in selling a home. The price was wrong. Price your home right and you’ll find Buyers lining up at the front door to get in to see your home.

You listened to your neighbors, friends and family about how you should price your home for sale – Would you visit an Orthopedic Doctor when you had heart palpitations? You may even have to visit a Cardiologist for stress after listening to your neighbors, friends and family about how to price your home for sale. Instead seek the advice of a trusted Real Estate professional, always.

You didn’t keep your home clean and neat – It’s time to bring out the neat and clean freak in you when selling a home. Keeping your home neat, orderly and smelling clean speaks volumes to Buyers as they wander through your home. It tells them that you care for your home and a cared for home brings in top dollars from Buyers.

You didn’t keep your home light and bright– Light and bright makes everything look so much better. Blinds drawn, lights not turned on and light bulbs burnt out do not elicit welcoming thoughts.

You didn’t remove the “You” from your home – Seeing “You” when Buyers walk into your home make it difficult for them to see themselves living in your home. It’s a gift to be able to see beyond the “You” and most Buyers do not possess that gift. Make it easy for them and remove your extremely personal touches such as rows of family photos and your collections.
