Sellers~ do you check out your own listings before it hits the market? I know this is a busy time for you. Everyone is busy getting their homes ready to put on the market. You are getting ready to move whether that be in state, out of state, downsizing etc. Your mind is going a million different places. You've hired your agent but have you checked out your listing..?
I often wonder this as I go through the MLS looking at homes my buyers want to see or homes that pop up in their searches as possibilities. When I have a listing I like to have the sellers double check it the information double checking amenities, inclusions, exclusions and descriptions. I have them approve of the listing and before the home is even put live on the market they have already approved the tour/photographer that was hired and is in place to use as advertising.
I want them to see what I am doing and if they have questions I can explain why I've used the language I've used or pictures we have taken.
Common items I find on our local MLS:
Home does not show that it has a garage on the listing sheet when it does
Home does not show it has a yard when it does
Home has pictures that have been uploaded sideways, or are too dark for example
Home only has the minimum amount of pictures or pictures were taken from their car or cropped off google earth images
Home does not show bedrooms or bathrooms
Home shows that it is active when it is not active
Homes with snow in the yard and its summer
*A picture is worth a thousand words and your first showing is often the tour online*
Sellers don't be afraid to check over your listings... this could make the difference between your home selling and your home expiring.
