Sellers listen up!
The way you live in your home and the way you SELL your home are different. Please pay special attention to the following suggestions to help expedite the SALE of your home, rather than just having it listed.
A cluttered house or one that smells. When sellers have too many possessions, buyers have a hard time imagining themselves living there. Sellers may consider putting their stuff in storage – or move out altogether, if possible.
Pet odors also are a big turn-off, as is a house that reeks of cigarette or cigar smoke. "If buyers smell smoke, they'll walk out immediately," said Jon Klein, an agent for Real Living 1st Choice Realty in Coral Springs.
False or misleading advertising. Sellers and their agents stretch the truth by claiming a home has four bedrooms, but the fourth room isn't a bedroom because it doesn't have a window and closet.
One out of town buyer stated, a home was advertised as waterfront but only had a water view. "It's a waste of our time," she said.
Sellers not committed to selling. Some sellers want to test the market, then waffle when buyers show serious interest. Others ignore offers or are insulted by what they consider low bids.
