Common Seller Mistakes

To sell your home for the highest possible price, avoid a few common mistakes. Just follow these simple guidelines and you can get the maximum return on your investment.

Distress selling
At times, selling quickly is unavoidable. That's when knowing the right techniques to sell your home really pays off. Vogel Realty can help you determine the true market value of your home to ensure you are not settling for the first offer through the door.

Best home in the neighborhood
Don't be blind to your home's flaws and needed cosmetic improvements. This will cause overvaluing of the home, hurting its chances to be sold. Vogel Realty can provide a well-informed third eye that will help you price your home at a fair market price.

Limited home viewing
Buyers want to view a home on their own time schedule. Unfortunately their time schedule does not always coincide with your time schedule. Vogel Realty will set up a lockbox so your home can be shown when you are not around.

Emotional decisions
Don't allow a few hundred dollars, which would mean very little to you in the long run, ruin a sale. Take a look at the big picture and react rationally.

Failure to make cosmetic improvements
Prospects make up their minds within the first few minutes. First impressions can make all the difference in selling your home. Vogel Realty can provide you with a list of items that will maximize the profitability of your home sale.

Failure to disclose property flaws
Property disclosure laws require sellers to list any flaws required by your state. If you are unaware of flaws or worse, attempt to cover them up, you risk losing the sale and finding yourself in court. Vogel Realty can introduce you to qualified inspectors and ensure the smooth sale of your home.

Priced too high or too low
Most homes that do not sell in their first listing period are priced too high. Consequently, most homes that sell quickly are priced too low and cheat the homeowner out of profits. You need to understand your market and evaluate the value of your home based on fact, not gut instinct or conventional wisdom.
