When selling a property, homeowners will want to ensure they get the best possible price for their home. As well as getting a good fee, selling a property quickly is important to many homeowners, although it is not always easy to achieve. When putting a house on the market, there are some common mistakes homeowners make which stop potential buyers making an offer, experts revealed. Overvaluing a property and publishing bad photos of it could be enough to put buyers off.

The selling price of a house is very important and setting it too high will put buyers off, estate agents at NAEA Propertymark explained to propertymark.co.uk.

They said: “The first thing your buyer sees is the price, so when it comes to valuing your home, it’s got to be done right.

“An overpriced property could deter anyone from arranging a viewing and making an offer. You should seek the help of a professional estate agent who will use their expertise about the local market to give you a fair price.”

As well as getting professional help, sellers can do their own research to ensure they are marketing their property correctly.

“It’s worth doing your own research too though – how much are other properties in your area being marketed for?” the experts said.

“What does your home offer that other ones in the area don’t? Be realistic and don’t let pride cloud your judgement and lead to overpricing.”

Appearances are key and another mistake made by homeowners using bad pictures when advertising the property.

They explained: “When it comes to selling a property, a picture really is worth a thousand words; with more buyers searching online than ever before, great photos are an absolute must.

“Avoid photos with bad lighting or any that are blurry and poor quality.

“Your estate agent should take professional standard photos to help market your home, so make sure the property is tidy, the curtains are open, and all the light bulbs are working before they come over.”
