Top 4 Mistakes to Avoid When Listing Your Home With an Agent

1

Going with the agent who promises you the highest sale price or the most amount of money (even if the price seems unrealistic)

The inflated list price you were quoted (in order to get your listing) results in few buyers coming to view your home (because they can get a comparable, properly priced house, for less money) and you end up having to endure a series of price reductions (results in your home finally selling for BELOW its true market value).

Choosing the 'nicest' agent

Choosing the agent who promises to save you money by discounting the commission rate. A lower commission does not guarantee you will net more on your home sale. According to Real Estate Consultant Bernice Ross, there is a 'Big Lie' in real estate. It's the lie that reducing commission always results in more money for the seller. Companies who cut services in exchange for taking a lower commission often cost clients much more.
