The Number #1 Home Seller Mistake - Selling Your Illinois Home in 2014

 

Data provided by ActiveRain.com.

 

Active Rain asked 1,000 real estate agents to rate the top mistakes made by home sellers.

In order of importance the survey results were:

 

1. Overpricing your home.

2. Showing availability.

3. A cluttered home.

4. Not removing unpleasant odors.

5. Unwilling to negotiate.

6. Not willing to make repairs.

 

While I agree that an overpriced home is more difficult to sell, in my years of experience selling over one thousand homes -

The number one mistake is not allowing showing appointments and putting too many restrictions on when the home can be shown.

Contrary to common belief, a buyer can look past clutter and will consider putting in an offer on an overpriced home.

However, if a prospective buyer cannot see the property, they WON'T make an offer on it and the WON'T buy it.
