Don’t Make These Mistakes When Selling Your Home

Selling real estate is often about that first impression, the impact on the buyer the moment she walks into your home. Buyers in Contra Costa County tend to be a particular lot, to know precisely what they’re looking for. Fortunately for home sellers, there are a number of ways to avoid making a “first impression” mistake when their home is on the market.

Don’t Assume

Don’t assume that a buyer can look through the clutter or overcrowded rooms. While home investors — people who want to buy your house at a discount and flip it for a profit — are great at seeing the potential just beyond the mess, the average home buyer is not. De-clutter and de-personalize. Donate any furniture you don’t absolutely need, or put it in storage to be used in your next home. All those families photos and children’s artwork? You love them and we understand why. But box it all away until after your home has sold. You want a potential buyer to be able to see herself in the house rather than picturing your family everywhere she looks.

Don’t Become Discouraged

We know how much you’ve poured into your home and what a financial investment it has been. Prepare yourself by knowing that it may not sell immediately, you may receive a few low-ball offers, and you may occasionally become frustrated. It’s all part of the process, experiences millions of other home sellers have gone through and prevailed over.
