1. Don't -- demand too much money. Listing your Tallahassee home too high will ensure buyers pass it by. Faced with many choices, buyers are just itching to filter out some of the homes on their to-see list... price is the #1 filter. Price too high, and you've made the most critical home sale mistake.
2. Don't -- skip marketing. Marketing can be accomplished many ways. The critical marketing piece is how your home is presented on the internet. High quality photos, and lots of them, are a huge part of marketing a home. Wide angle lens shots, supplementary lighting, appropriate staging are very important. You must also drive traffic to the websites listing your home through mailing, internet marketing and print advertising.
3. Don't -- leave needed repairs. Every repair a buyer sees contributes to the impression that a home is not well maintained. Today's buyers want move-in condition. There is no more "sweat-equity." This is a home sale mistake that sellers often make because they get used to little things in their home that don't quite work right. We all live with these things in our home, but buyers are less forgiving when they are making a home buying decision.
