A listing can be bad in many ways. The biggest one we see is bad pictures. Nobody wants to see other people cluttering clearly and simply. Although you can remove all your pictures, at least make a good cleaning! We saw people using pictures of laundry piles on their beds and plates in the sink..
While most agents will be honest about what your house will sell for, others will inflate the price to get you to sign a listing agreement. Search yourself and find multiple options about the value of your house. Look at what other homes have sold, not only those listed at the moment. Factor in the repair costs, and be objective in your pricing. If you list the property too high, it will have to be lowered in price. This pushes your listing down and makes people wonder if something’s wrong because it’s been on the market for so long. If it sits on the MLS for any period of time, the amount you are paying taxes, utilities, insurance, and maintenance can add up. By quickly selling your home, you can keep a large amount of cash in your pocket.
