Mistakes to Avoid When You Are Selling a Washington DC Home

Selling a Washington DC home is easier now, due to our “Seller’s Market.” However, there are still mistakes that you are going to want to avoid, if you want to sell your home quickly, and at your target sale price.

  • Don’t price your property too high – you’ll put off some buyers, before they even see your home, or set a high bar for buyer expectations. Your home will also take a longer time to sell. Instead, ask your real estate agent for the latest comparable market analysis, based on similar, recently sold properties in the same community.
  • Don’t forget to "showcase" your home – it’s simple to do; ask Realtor Michelle Buckman for help, if you’re not sure what to do.
  • Don’t push buyers with a hard sell. Give prospective buyers time and space to examine your property, and let your Realtor sell the home – that’s what they do for a living.
  • Don’t ignore your rights and responsibilities in a Real estate contract. Real estate contracts are legally binding documents and can be complex and confusing. It's crucial you are aware of all the details in your real estate contract. If you don’t understand something, or have questions, ask your Realtor before you sign.
  • Don’t sign a contract with a Realtor that has no escape clause. You have a right to a contract that allows you to fire your real estate agent - and hire another - if the original agent fails to do the job as promised.
