These Mistakes Can Prevent the Sale of Your Greater Boston & North Shore Home

Selling a house in the current market can be tricky, but there are certain mistakes an owner can make that will cause a Greater Boston & North Shore home to sit still without a decent offer and cause the listing to go stale.

To prevent that from happening, make sure you are not making one of the following mistakes when putting your property on the market.

Overpricing

While your Greater Boston & North Shore home may hold sentimental value, that value does not translate into dollars. Be realistic about your asking price and know the market. Look at the list price of similar houses on the market to get a rough idea of what you should ask for your property. Your real estate agent can also give you their expert opinion based on experience and comparable property sales.

Neglecting Repairs

Glaring problems with a property will cause the buyer to think the Greater Boston & North Shore home was not properly maintained. While it may cost money, repairing things like holes in the walls, broken light fixtures or missing tiles can change a buyer’s entire attitude about a property.

Ignoring Curb Appeal

Overgrown and un-weeded yards can cause potential buyers to drive right by. Also, having junk in the front of your house or peeling paint can deter someone from considering the property. Step across the street and take an honest look at your house — and then make necessary adjustments.

Creating Foul Odors

Odorous foods, pet dander and the smell of smoke can be extremely distasteful to buyers. Even if you are used to the smell, others entering your house will not be. Make sure you air out the house, smoke only outdoors, and put away the litter boxes before an open house or showing.

Without even realizing they’re sabotaging a potential sale, homeowners can make several mistakes when first trying to sell a Greater Boston & North Shore home. Many mistakes have easy fixes and are even preventable.

    Marc put a lot of work into his marketing which got great results! He was always helpful during the whole process from start to finish. I met Marc 3 years ago when I was going to sell and then decided not to. Marc kept in contact until I finally decided to put my house on the market this April. He never once was pushy, he just checked in whether it was on me, my parents, or my husband. Thanks Marc for all your help!

    From the first time I met Marc I enjoyed working with him. I highly, and happily, recommend Marc for anyone looking to sell or buy a property. I was very comfortable working with Marc. He is very personable, professional, patient, easy to work with, high skilled, motivated, responsive, organized, always willing to help, and always willing to go the extra mile for you. And Marc's broader support team were also pleasant and efficient to work. As the saying goes "the proof is in the pudding", and the pudding for me was the fact that Marc had an offer in front of me on the day before the first Open House was to be held. And that offer was so good I ended up accepting it (10% above asking price and 4% above my desired bottomline sale price. 😁 If you choose Marc as your Real Estate professional, when all is said and done I think you'll be happy you did!!

    Marc’s Knowledge of the the space and timing in the market was incredible to watch unfold. He not only hired solid contractors but also guided them in what the modern consumer wants / needs in their home. He made sure to keep them in line and within budget. Not only did he assist me in that overwhelming process but he had a stager set in place & 60 people showing up at my open house for 3 days in a row. He knows how to market his projects and himself incredibly. Doesn’t hurt that he got me over asking and closed in less than 30 days!
