Selling your home can be an exciting time, and it’s likely that you are hoping your property sells quickly. Unfortunately, there are a few things that can go wrong when you are ready to advertise your real estate listing that will scare away potential buyers (and sometimes your agent, too). Here are three things that should be avoided if you want to achieve successful real estate listings.

  • Overpriced – If you avoided checking comparable listings or haven’t had an appraisal completed on your home, it’s possible you could scare away potential buyers because your property is overpriced on its listing. Having a competitive price will ensure that your real estate listing is seen and speaks to the right buyer.
  • Poor Photos – We’ve all seen them – real estate listings with grainy photos, taken in poor lighting, and at bad angles. Make sure you take high-quality photos that accurately reflect the interior and exterior of your home, so a buyer can visualize themselves in the space.
  • Inaccurate Information – Does your listing say you have a fenced-in yard when it’s really your next door neighbour’s fence? Did you say you had a paved driveway, but it’s really gravel with a concrete parking area? Providing inaccurate information on real estate listings is a great way to have potential buyers turn around and leave before they’ve even viewed your home.
