What Not To Do To Sell Your Home

You’ve found your dream home – your new home – and the only thing you need to do now is sell your current home.
Of all the things you should do – have you thought about what not to do?  Here are a few things you need to make sure NOT to do!
1.      Don’t have pets in the home when potential buyers are coming to look at your home.  Barking dogs, pet hair or scratching pets can turn buyers off from really seeing the home.
2.     Take down any potentially divisive memorabilia whether political or sports related. There is no gain in creating negative associations in the home over even seemingly minor d├ęcor choices.
3.     Even if you didn’t have time to clean as well as you wanted, don’t leave a room off limits or locked. Let potential buyers see the whole home.
4.     Too much clutter, too many family photos or knick knacks will take away from the overall look of your home. De-personalize your home so buyers can picture themselves living there.
5.     Another major turn off for buyers – sellers who won’t leave! When you have a showing giving the shoppers plenty of privacy and space to evaluate the home without your watchful eye following their every move!
What selling turn offs have you experienced when shopping for a new home?
