Selling your Atlanta home without the help of an agent? Take the time to read this blog post, which reveals four mistakes you should avoid when listing with an Atlanta real estate agent…

For those considering selling their Atlanta home, or for those who are real estate agents who specialize in selling Atlanta homes, here are four mistakes to avoid when listing a home with an Atlanta real estate agent…

First and foremost, do not assume that you will be able to sell your home immediately.

There are numerous factors that influence the market, and the market can fluctuate and even shift from one day to another. As a result, be realistic in your expectations of how long it will take to sell your home.

If you are a seller, plan on the sales process taking several months to complete – from preparing the house to showing it to buyers to negotiating to setting a closing date to packing and moving. You should be cautious as an agent not to overpromise a timeline to your sellers – rather, you should set their expectations.

Second, don’t make the mistake of assuming that the asking price will be the selling price.

When selling your home with an agent, there are several mistakes you should avoid.

The asking price serves as the starting point in the sales process; it establishes the amount for which a seller is willing to sell.

If you are a seller, you should be aware that the actual selling price may be different from the price you have asked for. If you’re a real estate agent, make sure to communicate this to your sellers.

Third, don’t make the mistake of assuming that all of the money goes directly into your pocket.

Some people make the mistake of assuming that the selling price (minus any debts owed on their mortgage) represents a 100% profit on their investment. However, this is not the case.

If you are a seller, be aware that there will be agent commissions, closing costs, and other fees that you will be required to pay before proceeding. If you work as a real estate agent, make sure to explain everything to your clients.

Fourth, don’t make the mistake of assuming that the first offer will be accepted.

Buyers frequently submit offers only to discover that they are unable to obtain financing for a variety of reasons.

If you are a seller, you should expect one or two buyers to back out before a buyer can be found for your property. If you’re a real estate agent, you should prepare your sellers ahead of time by explaining this to them so that they are prepared in the event that this occurs.

Summary

Whether you’re a property owner looking to sell or a real estate agent representing sellers, these are four common mistakes that can occur during the sales process – and you should be aware of them before making any decisions.
