Not every buyer is the same but in most troublesome home selling deals, common complaints do occur. If you are planning on listing your home among properties for sale Sydney, then be sure to avoid these common issues that turn buyers away.
Sellers who can’t let go of the property
It is understandable as to why a property can be hard to let go. It can be especially hard if you put in considerable work into it and had a memorable life in it. However, once you have made the decision to sell your home, it is important to not cling to your property. Allow your agent to show your home and only make appearances when appropriate.
A buyer can’t assess your property in its best possible light if it has not been professionally cleaned, staged and prepared for a showing. Buyers are exceptionally quick to notice dirt, grime and damages as they are looking at your home with heavy scrutiny. Hire professional cleaners and home staging professionals to make sure that your home is perfectly clean and organised when buyers come to take a look.
Did you know that some home staging professionals use pleasant smells such as baking cookies to create a homely feel for potential buyers? However, any odd smells such as pet odours, mouldy smells and pretty much anything unpleasant will discourage buyers.
This is another reason to stage your home. Any clutter on any part of your home can turn buyers off! Instead, get rid of all unnecessary belongings and personal items when you prepare your house for a showing. The last thing you want is your buyers stumbling about piles of magazines, folded laundry on the beds and stacked kitchen counters. Clutter can even make a space appear smaller than it really is.
The wrong price
The majority of buyers check out homes with a budget in mind. If your price is too high or too low, it can raise concerns. Always consult with your real estate professional to make sure that you price your house just right. What’s worse than the wrong price? A house advertised with no price at all! Take the time and effort to get your property evaluated and set a realistic price if you want a faster sale.
