Survey of 1,000 Real Estate Agents Reveals the Top Six Ways to Sabotage the Sale of Your Home
Denver, Colorado: The most common reasons that a house will not sell in a good market are often well within the control of the home seller according to a recent survey by the ActiveRain online real estate community. In a poll of over 1,000 real estate agents, it was revealed that the top six ways home sellers turn potential home buyers away are:
- It is difficult to set a showing time
- The seller is unwilling to depersonalize or declutter the home
- Unpleasant odors
- The seller is unwilling to negotiate with buyer
- The home is overpriced
- The Seller Refuses to Make Repairs
Brian Burke, a local REALTOR® with Kenna Real Estate confirms that these same findings hold true for homes in the Denver Metro area“ It is up to the agent to educate the seller on aspects of the home selling process that can instantly turn off a potential buyer,” stated Brian Burke. “However, some sellers get on the defensive when you point out pets, odors, and housekeeping, so it is a very fine line to walk!”
Brian Burke reflects on a time share a short horror story about a time when you were showing a home to buyers. Think of an example that specifically addresses one of the home seller mistakes covered in the infographic.
“I wish stories like this weren’t common in my line of work. A good real estate agent spends plenty of time with their sellers before their house ever goes on the market to avoid these expensive mistakes.”
