Top 4 Mistakes to Avoid when Selling your Nashville TN Home

Top 4 Mistakes to Avoid when Selling your Nashville TN Home

 

Overpricing

Pricing your Nashville TN home for sale is the most important part of selling your home. We all want to get the most money possible for our Mistakes to avoid when selling your nashville tn homehomes. And if the home is priced correctly that's exactly what should happen.

The first buyers through your  home are usually the best Buyers. They've already been looking and are now just waiting for the right house to come on the market.

These Buyers also know where the prices are and may have already missed some other properties because of multiple offers. These are the people who will often come in at the market price just to get your home off the market.

 

Not Giving Easy Access to Your Home

Buyers and their Realtors have schedules. They make appointments to go see house on their combined schedules not yours. When your house is not available at the requested time, it may totally fall off the list.

We understand that it's inconvenient for you and everyone in your household. Remember, when you go to buy, you'll want to see the houses you want to see on your schedule. Not someone else's.

 

Being Present for Showings

Realtors are professionals. They are working with Buyers who have explained in detail what's important to them. They know which things in your home that may be selling points to this particular buyer.

You do not. You know what was important to you.

You can actually lose the sale by talking about things that cause the buyer to NOT want your house. 

You may also give away information that will reduce your negotiating ability.

Cleaning

 

Not Presenting your Home in it's Best Condition

This is often the biggest Mistake when selling your Nashville TN home!

The best houses sell first. Best, meaning incredibly clean and staged. You only get one chance to make a first impression. Start with the outside. 

We suggest going to the street and taking a hard look at the front of the house. This is where the Buyer will start. If the front of the house and the landscaping are not neat and clean, the Buyer may choose to not bother with the inside.

After the curb appeal, the inside must be the same.

To avoid making mistakes when selling your Nashville TN home, hire a Realtor. They can walk you through the process and help to make sure you have a smooth transaction.
