A Seller's Biggest Mistake

Please try NOT to value your own home as a seller. Because of the emotional connection with your home, not to mention the time and money invested, homeowners who do not seek expert advice on current market conditions will almost always overprice. And if you're rigid about getting this price, they will alienate most potential buyers and most probably end up selling your property for less than an experienced agent would have recommended in the first place.
Once you seek the advise from an agent or two, please do not make the mistake of choosing the agent that gives you the highest estimated sale price, rather than selecting the one that has the best marketing plan. The real key to a successful sale these days is maximum exposure as fast as possible using additional tools such as online and cell phone marketing, national advertising and extensive referral networks, such as I use with Coldwell Banker - and you should be very sure that these are included in the marketing plan for your home.
If you or someone you know would like more information about the greater Orlando marketplace or a particular home in your neighborhood, please give me a call at 407-923-9313.
