Are you selling your Durham house through an agent? Make sure you read this blog post that reveals 4 mistakes you should avoid when listing when an agent.

First, don’t assume that You Can Sell Right Away

The market varies and can even shift from one day to the next, depending on a number of factors. So, make sure you set realistic timelines about how long it will take to sell.

If you are a seller, assume it will take months for the sales process to be completed – from fixing up the house to showing buyers to negotiating to set a closing date to moving out.

Second, Don’t Assume That The Asking Price Will Be The Selling Price

Mistakes you should avoid when listing with an agentThe asking price is the starting point in the sales process – it establishes what a seller wants to sell for. If you are a seller, realize that the actual selling price might be different than the asking price.

Third, Don’t Assume That All The Money Goes Right Into Your Pocket

Some people make the mistake of assuming that the selling price (minus anything they owe on their mortgage) is pure profit. But this is not true. If you are a seller, make sure you know that there will be agent commissions, closing costs, and other fees you’ll have to pay.

Fourth, Don’t Assume That The First Offer Will Go Through

Buyers often make offers and then discover that they can’t get financing for some reason. If you are a seller, be prepared to have one or two buyers fall through before a buyer can be found.
