Neglecting Pre-sale Repairs & Updates:

One of the biggest mistakes sellers make is not addressing repairs and updates before listing their home. Neglecting this can lead to lower offers and a longer time on the market.

Overpricing Your Property:

Overpricing your home is a surefire way to deter potential buyers. Work with a Real Estate professional to determine a competitive and realistic listing price based on market trends.

Ignoring Curb Appeal: 

The first impression counts and that begins with your home’s curb appeal! Neglecting your front yard, entryway, and exterior can turn off potential buyers before they even step inside. 

Failing to Declutter & Depersonalize:

Clutter and personal items can make it difficult for buyers to envision themselves living in your space. Declutter your home, pack away personal items, and aim for a neutral decor to help buyers connect to your property.

Not Disclosing Issues:

Honesty is the best policy! Failing to disclose known issues with your property can lead to legal trouble down the line. Ensure you’re upfront about any past or present problems, from structural issues to neighbourhood concerns.
