HOW TO AVOID SELLING MISTAKES

These are some of the top mistakes that home sellers make:

1. Pricing the house incorrectly – do not overprice your home. The longer your home sites on the market, the less you will get for it.
2. Selling your home in as-is condition – don’t have buyers discounting their offers because they will have too many items to update, often times discounting way beyond the actual price of the repair or renovation.

3. Not paying attention to curb appeal – remember, first impressions are very important
4. Not having the house accessible for showings – don’t have your property passed over because it is not conveniently available to be seen
5. Being inflexible with contingencies – financing and physical inspection contingencies can be very important to the buyer
6. Showing the home yourself instead of the agent showing the home – doing it this way makes it harder for the prospective buyer to picture themselves living in your home
7. Not replying immediately to offers – when negotiating, be sure to promptly respond while the buyers are still emotionally vested in the home

3 MOST ATTRACTIVE BUYER INCENTIVES

Article courtesy of Trulia.com

In real estate when competition increases, sellers have to use every tool possible to standout. Every owner wants to attract the best buyers, so owners often go beyond aggressive pricing to “sweeten the pot” for prospects with incentives.

Sold

The question is, “which buyer incentives are the most effective?”

Offering an incentive is a good idea, but only if you offer an incentive that can actually attract a buyer.

Here are the 3 most attractive buyer incentives that are most likely to be successful, according to the 2011 National Association of REALTORS Survey of Home Buyers and Seller:

1. Home Warranty Policies

The thing that is most attractive to buyers is a home warranty policy.  The good news is that this is also the most cost-effective incentive option for sellers, too.

Sellers can assure buyers that any unexpected repairs that fall under the warranty policy will be covered.  A home warranty typically costs only a few hundred dollars for the seller and can offer the buyer a tremendous amount of peace of mind.  There are a number of home warranty providers out there, so make sure you do your research to find the best provider for the home in question.

2. Assistance With Closing Costs

The economic and lending environments have created a situation in which many prospective buyers don’t have the cash required to cover their closing costs.  Many times, the difference between a buyer being able to buy a home or having to pass it up can lie in the closing costs.

Sellers who are willing to contribute to the closing costs stand a much greater chance of attracting a larger pool of buyers.  Sellers can decide how much they want to offer based on what makes financial sense for them and the prospective buyers.  While this might be a bit more costly option than the home warranty, it can be equally as effective in sealing a deal.

3. Remodeling/Repair Credit

If your home has a feature or flaw that repels buyers, consider offering a credit towards repairs or remodeling.  If you are receiving feedback that buyers consistently don’t like a particular aspect of the floor plan or condition of your home, then consider a credit.  This gives you a way to overcome a potential objection right up front.  The more objections you can remove, the closer you get to a sale.

The next time you are trying to sweeten the pot for a prospective buyer, consider these options.  These just might be the incentives you need to land that perfect buyer and close the deal.
