2. Not staging your home properly:
Sellers often don’t value for staging and furniture. But staging a home definitely have an impact as if the buyer sees a well-decorated home with clean and elegant furniture, then this appearance appeal attractive to him.
Some sellers in order to sell the home, already move out the furniture from the rooms thus make the rooms empty and non-attractive.
3. Uploading non-professional photos online:
Today’s is the world of technology, and every item is selling online from a piece of a paper to the home, plot and furniture. There are many websites available online where you can sell your property by providing detail, price and pictures.
If the seller’s upload an old picture or less quality picture, then buyers will not take any interest. Make a little expense for a better price by hiring a professional cameraman to take the images, and you can put them online.
