Selling a home isn't as easy as some real estate TV shows make it seem. There are many pitfalls that a seller can face if they are not properly advised throughout the selling process by a licensed real estate professional. Here are a few tips to help you avoid potential pitfalls and keep you a step ahead of the game: 

 

Marketing and advertising on your property

  1. Professional photos are a must in order to make your home stand out from the competition.
  2. Properly describe your home to the public. Stick with factual features and benefits, not opinions. 
  3. Display driving directions for potential buyers to view online. 
  4. Be ready to show your home within a reasonable timeframe. 
  5. Gain massive exposure by using all real estate based websites, not just Zillow.com. 
  6. Harness the power of social media to get the word out regarding your home for sale. 

Preparing your home for sale

  1. Buyers notice everything. Make all minor repairs before you list your home. 
  2. Make sure all home systems, such as electrical and plumbing are functioning properly. 
  3. If no staging is needed for your home, remove all unnecessary clutter. 
  4. Advice from friends and family is great, but get professional advice throughout the preparation process. 
  5. Check for any easements or liens that may hinder the sale of your property. 
  6. Obtain all important documents, especially certificates of occupancy, prior to listing your property.
