Whether you are selling your home for the first time or you’ve sold several, it’s imperative to avoid real estate pitfalls. These common problems can leave a home sitting on the market for far too long. The Shaffer team has seen countless sellers struggle through problematic pitfalls, but you don’t have to be one of them. We’re here to help you overcome all the real estate obstacles in your path (don’t worry, we have your back), so that you can quickly sell your home without a glitch.

Here’s some of the most common real estate pitfalls:

  • Poor photography
  • The home doesn’t show well
  • Lacking availability
  • Passing on decent opportunities

And here is how the Shaffer team will help you overcome them:

Professional Photographer

The Shaffer Team works exclusively with a professional photographer to market homes (don’t worry, it’s not Nate wiedling a camera). We recognize that the listing photos provide some of the best marketing tools available and we strive to capture the essence of the home. This crucial step sets you apart from all other listings in the neighborhood.

Staged to Perfection

Although it may feel like a daunting task, staging your home to modernize it is of the utmost importance. Paint a picture for potential buyers so they can envision themselves living in the space. Lucky for you, the Shaffer team works with a professional stager (she is amazing, trust us), and she can have your house in perfect show form in no time.

Invest in Open Houses

Open houses are a huge investment of time. We know the struggle for families! But part of the home-selling process is open houses (it’s a big part, actually). Potential buyers can more accurately see themselves in the space as they walk through it. The Shaffer team spends time and resources to fully market your open house. We offer refreshments, engaging conversations (if we do say so ourselves) and the chance for buyers to fall in love with the listing.

Every Opportunity Should be Carefully Considered

As a seller, you predominantly look to find buyers that will maximize your monetary takeaway, right? This is not always the best way to augment your time. Look for the potential to expand your network and bring in more connections that may lead to the ultimate sale. Consider every interaction a potential for a sale.
