An essential part of wanting to sell a house is doing everything you can to make sure it sells quickly. The longer a house is on the market, the more money you’ll be spending on the mortgage, property taxes, and more. So before you work with a real estate agent to get your house ready, determine the best listing price, and finally put the house on the market, learn some of the most common mistakes home sellers make.

Home is Priced Too High

It’s understandable that you want to get the most from your home’s sale as possible, but overpricing the house can cause significant harm. A house that is priced too high could cause homebuyers to move on to other houses before even looking at yours, it can sit on the market longer, and can ultimately cause you to lower the listing price. Work with your real estate agent to determine the best price for the house.

Real Estate Agent HoustonHouse is Marketed Wrong

You could have the best house in Houston with the best price, but if no one knows about it, or the right people don’t know about it, the house will still sit on the market. Take a close look at the photographs of the house you’re using, make sure you’re using modern technology and techniques to get the word out, and make sure everything is prepared before you actually list the house, which leads us to the next tip.

Skipping the Preparation

If you go car shopping, you probably wouldn’t buy a car if it was covered in mud, chips in the window, or tears in the upholstery. The same goes for home buyers who are viewing your home for the first time. Take some time and put some effort into the curb appeal and the inside of the home. Clean up bushes and flower beds, remove personal items, and make any minor fixes.
