— And How to Correct them!

Failure to Address Needed Repairs

Many sellers hope that buyers won’t notice their leaky faucet or broken shutters during home showings. But minor issues like these can leave them worrying about more serious problems lurking out of sight. Besides, a professional inspector will flag any defects on their report.

To avoid disruptions, it’s important to make necessary renovations before your home hits the market. We can help you decide which repairs and updates are worth your time and investment.

Skimping on Staging

Homeowners see a 5-15% return on investment when they choose to professionally stage their homes before they sell them on the market (NAR 2021 staging profile) Homes that are staged sell faster and for more money than vacant homes.

If you are living in your home while you are selling it, it may not be possible to professionally stage. However, it is still very important to optimize your decor to best highlight what your home has to offer.

Poor Photo Quality Can Cost You Thousands

Buyers shop online for homes and the listing photos make the first impression. If the photos are not engaging and compelling, Buyers will continue to swipe through the feed and will never select your home for an in person tour.

Homes with at least 27 photos tend to garner more showings and sell faster and for more money.
