Shorewest Shares: Three Mistakes To Avoid When Selling Your Home

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather


You’re ready to sell your home, but where do you start? It’s easy to get caught up in looking forward to moving and getting settled in your new home. Don’t let that momentum ruin your chances of selling your current home. Here are four mistakes to avoid when selling your home:

1. Not using a Shorewest expert. A Shorewest agent is someone who has training on the home buying/selling transaction. They will help you stage your home, get professional photos taken of your home, and create custom marketing/advertising pieces for your home. A Shorewest agent is backed by Wisconsin’s Largest Home Seller™, a full-service broker offering insurance, mortgages, title insurance and home services. Not only do they know and understand the process of selling your home, they also know the community.

2. Getting emotionally attached. You’ve created many memories in your home, it’s hard to not get attached. When you’re getting ready to sell your home, you have to try and remove those memories. Buyers are trying to picture themselves in the space; they don’t see the first steps your daughter took, or the time your son stumbled when crawling. When staging your home, you will need to remove a lot of personal belongings. Just remember, your buyer will get to make their own memories in your home.

3. Do the smell check. It may sound funny, but if your home has an unpleasant odor, it may turn away potential buyers. Pets, cooking certain foods or even laundry/shoes (think of the sweaty football jersey and cleats) leave unpleasant odors in your house. If you try to mask it with candles or home fragrances, be careful to not have the pleasant odor become overwhelming.

When you’re ready to sell your house, the first step to make is to call your Shorewest Agent!
