3 Mistakes to avoid with a new listing
It is not uncommon for some mistakes to be made when selling your home, whether it was a decision made by the home owner, or the realtor, some things can slip through the cracks. However there are some bigger mistakes you really want to avoid when selling your home on the Penticton BC real estate market.
This one is crucial, as the photography of your home is the first impression anyone online is going to get of your homer, and online is where most people are going to see your listing. Some people or agents sometimes activate the listing with no photos or bad photos, and think it’s ok as they are going to update the photos soon. This is bad practice, as your listing may get many views before you have a chance to update the photos, and the bad photos can leave a bad first impression.
Showing the home
This is another crucial point, and believe it or not, a lot of people will list their home and not allow it to be shown for at least 2 weeks, for a variety of reasons. This can have a negative impact as statistics show that most of the showings that are going to happen are going to occur within the first week, as your home will be listed as a “New Listing” and will get lots of attention.
Once the status of a “New Listing” starts to fade away, so do the showings, so make sure the home is ready to be shown as soon as it is activated.
Some people like to try and list their home for much more than it is actually worth, and when people are searching for Real Estate for Sale in Penticton BC, they are going to be looking at your competition as well. If your home is not competitive on the market, you are going to lose a lot of potential buyers. Make sure you work with your realtor to ensure a proper home evaluation is done.
