  • Common Mistakes in Selling Huntington Beach Real Estate
    mistake areas Pricing Most of the time when we are talking about pricing mistakes in selling a home we are addressing the chronic issue of over pricing Over pricing is easy to understand after all real estate is a business transaction that calls for bargaining and many people assume a potential buyer will negotiate Unfortunately putting a price on your house that is too high may mean that many of these buyers who could well have negotiated will pass your home by thinking it s out of their range It s often better to price your house a bit lower and attract a greater number of interested Huntington Beach buyers While it does not happen quite as often sometimes sellers make the mistake of pricing their houses too low leading buyers to suspect there s something wrong with the house or the property Remember with pricing perception is everything It s the first detail about your home that most buyers will seek and they may make the decision not even to bother looking based on the asking price alone Cleaning Sure you know your house looks great when it s clean and that the fence is going to be easy to replace Keep in mind though that the potential buyers won t see that A house with areas in obvious need of repair or one that hasn t been thoroughly cleaned before a showing sends a message to the prospective buyer that it is hard to keep up or that it hasn t been well maintained over the years Again perception plays a big role and it s important that you don t take the little things for granted Make any necessary repairs before you start showing and spruce up the place vacuum dust do the dishes make the beds
