Staging Tips | Selling Mistakes | Why Isn't My Home Selling? | Remove Contingency To Sell

In my career I have successfully sold more then 45 properties in the shortest amount of time, that other brokers were not able to sell. I sell my own listing 83% of the time. When compared to other realtors in Westchester, my record speaks for itself. That's why I keep active and work with Sellers!!! Many other Top Producing Agents only list properties and do not work with buyers. They rely on other agents to get properties sold. That's not the way I work. I will actively promote your property and sell it on my own.

You know the saying: You never have a second chance to make a first impression. "The outside of your home is the first thing guests see," points out Christopher Breining, owner of HomeStagers, Inc., in San Francisco.

And like it or not, it speaks volumes about what’s inside–and about its owner. A welcoming entry, helps to set the tone for the rest of the house.

Another rule of thumb: If you don’t use it regularly, lose it. While you’re doing this sometimes-painful pruning, remind yourself that every square foot you free up is prime real estate.

Above all, "Get creative! Don’t be scared to try something different," Yackel says.

Indeed, just about every stager has tales of home sellers who, upon seeing their once-tired abodes transformed, were so blown away by the results that they decided to stay put.

Who knows–you, too, may just find that you love your "new" home so much you’ll never want to give it up
By far, the worst home selling mistake a seller can make is hanging the wrong price tag on a home. If the home is priced too high, buyers won't look at it. If it's priced too low, sellers worry that they'll give away profits.
Pricing a home to sell is an art. Part of the market value is based on comparable sales, but other factors to consider include market movement, demand, the home's location and its condition.
If the home is overpriced, buyers might submit lowball offers, which tend to result in an immediate offer rejection. These extremely low offers tend to infuriate and insult sellers.
Some agents deliberately overstate the value of a home and push a seller to sign an overpriced listing. There are many reasons why agents do this, but the bottom line is sellers lose a competitive edge when later reducing the price. Sellers who "test the market" get stung.
In buyer's markets, it is especially important to pull out all the stops and make your home stand out among the sea of inventory on the market.

Ask yourself why a buyer would choose your home over all the other homes for sale.

No single aspect of marketing sells a home.
It's a combination of marketing efforts.

If your newspaper makes a mistake and lists your home under the wrong section, don't panic -- homes have sold to buyers who found them in the wrong place. For that reason, consider placing an ad under several classifications..

Making an offer to buy a home when your own home is not yet sold is a dilemma for many home buyers.

Regardless of whether it's a buyer's market or a seller's market, sellers aren't too eager to accept an offer that is contingent upon the sale of a buyer's home, either. But especially in buyer's markets, you will see an increase in offers with a contingency to sell the buyer's home.

Options for Removing Sale Contingency:

Obtain a bridge loan.
Tap a home equity line of credit.
Change your mortgage to a higher loan-to-value.
Borrow the down payment from a relative.
Remove your sale contingency and hope for the best.

Before you remove a sale contingency, review your purchase contract with a lawyer and obtain legal advice to determine your rights under the contract..
