It may seem hard to believe, but there are some real dangers for sellers to be aware of in this year’s real estate market. If you’re planning to sell your home this year, these 3 tips will help you avoid the pitfalls that some Madison area sellers are experiencing in 2021.
Our 3 big tips for Madison area home sellers in 2021
#1: Don't get caught up in the hype.
These days it’s so easy for sellers to read the news headlines and social media hype and be lulled into overconfidence. Perhaps you’ve come across a few of these sellers. These are the folks whose listings are sitting on the market, with no real prospect of selling, because they’ve underestimated all that is required for a successful sale.
#2: Remember to focus on the fundamentals.
Overconfidence is causing some sellers to overlook the fundamentals that are so essential for a productive sale. Unwittingly, these sellers are short-changing the staging expertise, the market knowledge, the marketing know-how, and the negotiation skills that always lead to the best results.
#3: Remember your real reason for selling your home.
Because they’ve lost track of the fundamentals, some sellers are missing out on their real reason for selling their home. Their real goal may be to simplify their lifestyle, buy their next dream home, or move closer to family and friends. Unfortunately for these sellers, failing to sell -- or selling for too low of a price -- means deferring their dreams and putting their lives on hold.
