There are several steps home sellers need to take when listing their home on the open market. Continue reading and discover a few common mistakes sellers often make when they list their home for sale. 

Not disclosing issues

Do not think you are going to get anything past sellers today. It is in your best interest, to be honest, and upfront about any issues concerning your home. Most homebuyers today invest in a home inspection anyway so you don’t want to lie. Also, depending on the state’s law, you could be facing a lawsuit down the line if you fail to disclose issues with the home. Examples of such include roof or termite damage. With this, do not exaggerate about any features of your home or try to sweep any problems under the rug. If issues are discovered late in the home buying process that may put the deal at risk. 

Not making changes

Many sellers today still firmly believe that selling their home “as is” is the way to go. However, this thinking could wind up costing you thousands. Even a few minor cosmetic changes like a few fresh coats of paint or new carpeting can go a long way to attracting buyers. The same is true about significant changes like plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. 

Not being prepared for sale 

Do not list your home before you are ready to sell. This is one of the most common mistakes homeowners make today. You need to be mentally prepared to put your home on the market. You need to look past all the memories you have made in your home and realize that you are going to have to let go in order for the home to sell.
