3 Mistakes to Steer Clear of When Selling Your Luxury Home

Posted on: March 30, 2020

Selling Your Luxury Home In South Florida?

If you’re looking to sell your luxury home, you’re in for a completely different experience than when you sell a traditional home. Especially if it’s your first time, you want to be aware of some of the major mistakes you may make. Here are three big factors to watch out for when preparing your luxury home for sale.

Having Poor Quality Photos

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you list your luxury home with low-quality pictures, that is exactly the kind of buyer you are going to attract. Any photos or videos that accompany your home listing should be created by a professional photographer with high-quality equipment. It may seem like an extra expense, but it will certainly be worth it when you accurately capture the features and feeling of your home.

Not Using Multiple Techniques

Selling a luxury home is not as simple as taking a few pictures and listing it online. You want to come up with an accurate and thorough description that will accompany the listing. Think about the kind of buyers that you want to be interested in your home and aim to appeal to them. Additionally, don’t only stick to your traditional home selling websites. Consider listing your home in local print publications and on social media, as well as scheduling an open house or two.

Getting Too Emotional

If you have fixed up your luxury home for the purpose of selling and have never lived in it yourself, this may not be an issue. But if you have called this house “home” for many years, it’s understandable to be emotional while selling. However, once you move forward in the selling process, you have to take emotion out of the picture. If you’re too sentimental, you may not take the time you need to properly price, market, and sell your home.

Bonus: Not Using an Attorney
