Potential Home Selling Issues You May Not Realize

As a real estate agent, you have likely seen many of the potential problems that can occur while attempting to sell a home. From unexpected or last minute cancellations, to an overly emotional buyer, you’ve probably dealt with your fair share of difficult situations and troublesome issues. But while you’re making sure to cover your bases on the major items, there may be a few smaller concerns that happen to fall through the cracks. Here are some minor issues that could lead to bigger consequences if not properly addressed while selling a home.

Clean and Clutter-Free

It’s almost impossible to maintain a spotless house all of the time, especially with open houses and heavy foot traffic. While it might seem obvious to keep a clean house and pick up toys and other items prior to showing a home, it is important to keep in mind the overall look of the property. By removing everything that does not add to the stylish appearance and feel of the house, you will offer clients a less cluttered and more appealing home.

No Pets Allowed

An important item to keep in mind before showing off a house to perspective home buyers is the preparation involved if the seller had pets living in the property. Pets should be long gone by the time you display the home for sale, but without doing some ample cleaning and deodorizing beforehand, you could be finding yourself in the dog house.

Everything in Working Order

Have you ever been ready to showcase a home to a potential buyer for the first time and noticed a creaky stairway or nicked wall at the last minute? These may seem like minor issues that could be easily overlooked by a client, or they could lead to a negative opinion about the house. Prior to your first open house, make sure to complete one last sweep of the property and fix any potential eyesores and maintenance problems.

From clearing the clutter to an additional vacuuming to ensure a fur-free house, these small pieces of advice can help you focus on the big issues. For more helpful tips or to speak with a knowledgeable Las Vegas real estate agent, contact us today to see how we can help!
