The Biggest Mistakes that Seller’s Make

Planning to sell your home soon?


Every seller wants their home to sell as fast as possible for the highest value, however, many sellers make one big mistake when they are planning to sell. 


The most common mistake sellers make is renovating their home with their needs in mind, not those of potential buyers.


Often sellers put money in places that are important to them but aren’t necessarily important to a buyer, which can equate to wasted dollars and a lack of interested buyers. 


While a brightly coloured kitchen, an oversized garden fountain, or removing a bedroom to expand your master ensuite may be on your dream home list, they likely won’t appeal to the majority of buyers.


When preparing your home to sell, try to think of a blank canvas and remove your personal styles and preference from the equation.


Your home may be perfect for you, chances are, a new owner has some plans to make a few changes when they move in.


While adding in some personal touches probably won’t deter your home from being purchased, it could extend the amount of time it spends listed on the market.


Additionally, you also don’t want to waste money, time, and energy by adding design elements that will probably be changed.


Preparing your home for sale in advance will ensure it sells for the highest value and by keeping your updates as neutral as possible, it will be sure to appeal to the masses.
