Central Coast Home-Selling Tips

If you plan to sell your Central Coast home this coming spring, allow me to fill you in some common mistakes that home sellers make, so you know to avoid them! As a Central Coast real estate agent, I can answer your questions and guide you through the entire home-selling process. All you have to do is contact me, and we will go from there.

If this is the first time you’ll be selling a home, you’re more susceptible to making common mistakes. But if you know about them in advance, you can spare time, money and nerves by avoiding them. Here are some to be aware of:

1.  Pricing too high – This is the most common mistake among home sellers, especially in a seller’s market. If you’ve lived in your home for many years, chances are, you’ve grown an emotional attachment to it. While this is normal, it’s unwise to price your home based on an emotional perspective, as this price is often over market value. This is one of the best reasons to work with an agent, who can look at market data and help you price your home from a neutral, professional and experienced perspective.

2.  Not analyzing market conditions – If you take the time to analyze current data from the Central Coast real estate market, this will help you properly price your home to sell.  It’s helpful to see what homes similar to yours, and in the same area, listed for and sold for. I can supply this for you and save you tons of time and stress! You can also use our free market analysis to find out what your Central Coast home may be worth right now, based on numerous factors.

3.  Not marketing properly – While homes once sold just by putting a “For Sale” sign in the yard, that’s no longer the case. We live in an internet age now, and 90 percent of current buyers find the home they buy on the internet. Make sure you work with a Central Coast real estate agent who will properly market your home with professional photos, a quality listing description, presence on MLS and numerous real estate sites, and active social media platforms. You want as many prospective buyers as possible to see your listing!

4.  Not making repairs – Even just making small, minor repairs can help market your home to buyers. Many sellers choose to get a pre-listing inspection to find out what repairs are needed. Sellers can then choose to make these repairs or factor them into the listing price. If your home is outdated, making small upgrades and using smart staging tactics can really pay off. I can offer suggestions!
