1. Wrong pricing

  • Talk to a Realtor, he/she can help you set the right asking price
    A Realtor can provide you with a CMA (Comparative Market Analisys) so you can have accurate information of the market in your area.
  • Do not mistake Re-Financing Appraisals for the Market Value
    A refinancing appraisal untruthly estimate the value of your property higher than it actually is to encourage you to re-finance.The real value of your property could be lower.
  • Improper pricing is the main thing why most sellers end up selling for less

    If you do not show your home you do not sell it
  • Sellers interfere with showings of the property
  • Not allowing buyers to see everything in the house
  • Your home have to be ready to show at all times within 30 Minutes

    3. Failure to make some repairs

    4. Poor Sale technics

    5. Making emotional Decisions
  • One of the benefits of working with Realtors is that they do the negotiation for you at your best interest
  • Home sellers get offended when a buyer point out something about the property.
  • Do not take those objections personally. Work the deal and point out the other good things about the home

    6. Poor home exposure
  • If your home is not listed on the MLS(Multiple Listing Services) you are losing most buyers.
  • We are in the computer era, you home must be on the internet on the major websites, like,,
  • Your home need to have virtual tour on the internet

  • Understand Supply and Demand law. A lot of people buying, not many selling, the higher the price. On the other hand, a lot of people selling, not many buying the lower the prices
  • You need to know if it is the buyers market or the sellers makers.
  • On the buyers market, sellers make concessions to have the home sold
  • On the sellers market, buyers take anything bacause if they do not buy another buyer will do it.

    8. Going on contract with unqualified prospect
  • Showing the home to none pre-qualified buyer is a mistake.

  • Do not limit your market and advertising

    10. Not Knowing your rights and responsibilities
