7 Mistakes to Avoid When Selling a House

Lucky is the homeowner who has experience with selling a home. First-time sellers have a steep learning curve ahead of them and many obstacles on the road to a successful sale. Although common with first-time sellers, some of these obstacles aren’t obvious.HOME

1. Not Preparing the Home for Sale

“Dress your house for success,” is probably the best advice for home sellers. Just as you wouldn’t attempt to get top dollar for a car without cleaning the interior and detailing the exterior, so it goes with the sale of your home.
