The housing market is huge. It can often be difficult to figure out whether or not someone is telling you the truth about selling your home. Not to mention, there are plenty of rumors floating around that may cause you to rethink how you’re going about jumping on the market. The best way to overcome these lies is to do your research. At The Team Edge, we’re interested in giving you all the facts. Read on to get the full perspective.
Myth #1: Curb appeal doesn’t matter.
Some will tell you that curb appeal is merely about presentation, and that if someone goes on an open house tour, they won’t be swayed by mediocre exteriors. This isn’t true! Someone may pass your house by entirely based on how it looks from the outside. Always take the smallest details into account when it comes to curb appeal.
Myth #2: Small repairs can wait.
Of course, addressing larger issues should be your top priority. You won’t be doing well on the market with leaky pipes or moldy walls. But even those tiny dents in the wall make a difference to potential buyers. Don’t ignore the small stuff thinking it won’t matter.
Myth #3: Sellers should tour the buyers through the home themselves.
In reality, buyers are interested in seeing themselves in the home. If you’re touring them around, you’re going to tell them all about your personal experiences. But these buyers want to make new memories specific to them! They have no interest in what you got out of the home beyond functionality and comfort, so they can replicate it.
Myth #4: You should never barter when it comes to price.
Sticking to one specific price will turn away those who were going to buy the home at a higher price. Bartering to an acceptable degree will help you get buyers who will go for, say, $450,000 rather than the $430,000 you might have to sell it for if you pass them by.
