How not to discourage buyers.

You’re selling your home. Big decision made (tick) and you’re thinking a quick tidy up around the house, a bit of gardening, mow the lawns, maybe even a quick coat of paint in the kids bedroom and you’re ready to attract quality buyers. Right?

Maybe not. According to property experts at there are fundamental, yet common, rookie mistakes you should avoid that could discourage buyers and give you a less than perfect sale result.

Here’s 7 of the biggest:

  1. Not staging the property for the demographic
    When selling your home you must know who your buyers are and present the property to them … your Agent can help with this.
  2. Not making easy repairs
    A well look after home gives a positive first impression
  3. Overcapitalising 
    You may think a new kitchen is going to increase the sale price, but will it?
  4. Too much personalisation
    Keep any re-styling or renovations neutral
  5. Pricing the home too high
    What price is too high?
  6. Masking obvious problems
    Termite damage, non compliant pool fencing can turn buyers off.
  7. Using the wrong Agent
    How do you choose the “right” Agent?
