#1- Overpricing their home
This is the all time worst thing you can do in the marketing of your home. Home prices should be dictated by recent
comparable sales, not pipedreams. You must be realistic or else you will not accomplish your goal of making a move.
Home buyers are very well educated on fair market value and if a home is priced beyond the point of reason, they will
reject it without even viewing it. Find a reputable Western MA REALTOR that will work hard on researching current home
values and work in conjunction with that real estate agent to properly price your Western MA home.
#2- Showing availablity
Selling your home is not about your convenience, it is about the buyer’s availability and schedule. When I am showing
homes to buyers, often we are viewing a series of 8 or more homes and have a limited schedule. If you can’t
accomodate the buyer’s time constraints, it is likely that the buyer will never view your home and will buy one of the
others. Be prepared to find a way to let buyers see your home when they request to see it.
#3- Cluttered space
Staging your Western MA home is a major factor in getting a buyer to submit an offer. When a buyer tours the house they
want to be able to assess the space and the structure of the home, not your personal items. Think of your home as a
retail space and dress it out like a Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel and you will come out on top.
#4- Unpleasant odors
#5- Seller being unwilling to negotiate
#6- Seller being unwilling to make repairs
