The real estate market in the Washington metro area has been luckier than most in maintaining its stability, but it has by no means been immune to the economic downturn.
While inexperienced homebuyers often share stories of their naive mistakes, home sellers make their share of missteps, too. Some seller errors can be minor and may mean a slower sale or perhaps the loss of a small amount of money, but others can sabotage a sale. Here are some of the biggest mistakes home sellers make and how they can be avoided.
Mrs. Elias said it may be time to bring in a professional stager if your home is comparable in size and condition to others that are going under contract, but you still are not getting offers.
Mrs. Elias said agents easily can see whether a home has been on and off the market, so she said it only makes sense to do this if a homeowner wants to sell at a different time of year or wants to stop showings to make improvements to the property.
