There are a few things you can avoid doing to give your house the best chance of selling at a great price. Don’t:

  • Neglect its outside appearance
  • Skimp on professional photos
  • Try to hide issues – they will find out
  • Make your decór too personal
  • Have cluttered or dirty interiors

In our experience, the most common reason a home doesn’t sell isn’t location, condition, or age. It’s when your asking price is too high – go figure!

There’s a ton of work you can do now to add more value to your home for selling later on including bathroom and kitchen updates (you’d be surprised how much of a difference a new shower or countertop can make!), energy efficiency upgrades and better lighting.
