Anyone who has sold a home has lost opportunities because of mistakes that were made. We won't cover all the various mistakes, but just be aware that some have stronger ramifications than others. Many of these mistakes have been documented and the data has been available for many years, which is beneficial to present day home sellers. Information exists on just about any type of mistakes you, as a home seller, can make. Another thing to keep in mind is that real estate agents aren't perfect. They are prone to errors also.

When your home does not sell for whatever reason; your circumstances could be those of several. Few folks know that you need to take charge once the listing is about to run out. Your agent may not be aware of the complications of letting the listing lapse. But that would mean the agent is very new, incompetent or ignoring reality. If you are stubborn when it comes to the asking price, you will not have a satisfying outcome to your venture. After awhile you will need to reduce the price you are asking so as to get the attention from interested buyers. If you decide that you will simply not take less than you are asking; you are likely going to lose possible purchasers.

A lot of times, sellers will choose their agent for the wrong reasons. Sometimes agents will dangle the high asking price carrot in front of the seller. The reason for that is they will be more likely to be chosen by inexperienced sellers. This will only affect the home owner, not the agent. The trick is to price your home in a range that is average and possibly able to be lowered. In order to cover all of the bases that come into play in this type of endeavor; you need to hire the voice of experience. Do some comparison shopping through a few realtors to get a good idea of how much you ought to ask for your home.

A different financial matter to be careful about is the commission you pay your agent. Don't skimp here and try to get them cheaper. You will find their commission in the listing agreement. Talk to other people and discover what the normal commission percentage is in your market place. Then it's a simple matter to see what's been written up in the listing agreement and compare it to the market. You can also talk to your agent about it and simply ask about the fee and if it's average or below. Agents are human, and if you try to shortchange them on their commission, they could shortchange you on their services. Why would your agent show your home to a prospective buyer if the commission is low, when they can show a comparable home with a higher commission structure? So, don't be "pound wise and penny foolish" when setting the commission for your agent.

You should give a lot of thought to the price you will accept from an interested party. Maybe the most important thing to know is there is a good amount of subjectivity involved. You should come up with viable options once you have considered all the facts.
