Real Estate Mistakes When Selling your Brooklyn Home

If your home is sitting on the market month after month, or you’re only receiving ridiculously low offers, then you might be committing one of several common selling slip-ups. Some homes almost sell themselves, but if you don’t have that amazing home in the perfect location, you’ll need to be especially careful that you’re not committing one these four easily-avoidable Brooklyn real estate mistakes.

1.      Your home is priced too high. If no one’s even looking at your Brooklyn  house, it may be priced above market value. Check out the competition, and reevaluate how badly you need to sell. If you’re unwilling to drop the price to get buyers through the front door, maybe it’s not a good time for you to sell.

2.      Your house isn’t marketed well. Make sure you and your real estate agent are doing everything possible to get the word out about your home.  Include all of your home’s best assets and many flattering photos in your online marketing. With most home buyers starting their search on the Internet, if your home doesn’t look good online, they may be crossing your home off their list before giving it a chance.

3.      You hired a bad real estate agent. If your Brooklyn real estate just isn’t selling, it may be because your agent isn’t doing enough to get buyers through the door.When interviewing make sure you hire a Pro, look for a Realtor® to ensure the best.  Make sure you have detailed and open discussions with your agent from the beginning. That way you’ll each know exactly what you expect from the other.  If you’re not getting the results you want, talk with your agent and put a plan in place to reach your goals.

4.      Your Brooklyn home is in poor condition. Make sure all of the necessary fixes and repairs are done. Clean! And, remove as much clutter from your home as you can. You want potential buyers to come in and imagine themselves living there. Don’t make them want to run right back out of the door.
