5 Mistakes You Make Selling Your Home Too Fast

It’s understandable that many people want to sell their home as quickly as possible in order to get rid of a distressed property, avoid foreclosure, and resolve prominent tax issues that have been building up over the years. But some home sellers try to sell their home too fast and make costly mistakes they could have avoided if they simply did a little homework:

1. The mistake of sacrificing quality for speed

Beware of companies or investors who are only concerned with selling your home as quickly as possible. Ask if there are any obstacles that can slow things down and how they are prepared to deal with them. You need to work with someone who pays attention to detail each step of the way so that everything involved with selling your home is handled correctly. This way you won’t be stuck with any legal issues afterwards as a result of a company taking reckless shortcuts.

2. Trying to work with a company who lacks core values

Make sure that the company you’re working with has good core values that are consumer centric and not company centric. The easiest way to find out what a company’s core values are is to ask, but keep in mind that actions speak louder than words. Make sure you exercise enough patience to observe if their core values are authentic and truly intended to benefit consumers.

3. Dealing with a company with no personal touch

Every home seller has their own unique story and personal needs as a consumer, so making the mistake of trying to sell your home to a company who is rigid in its business practices can be costly. Take the time to ask plenty of questions to find out if they have the flexibility to personalize its services so that they can better serve you. Without a personal touch, some of your unique problems as a consumer may never get resolved.

4. Paying extra fees for hardship reduction services

Don’t make the mistake of paying extra money to a home buying company for services you can get for free. Remember, selling your home involves a lot more than just selling your home, so selling your home to a company that offers hardship reduction services ­ such as moving assistance ­ is essential. Take the time to research your options!

5. Working with a company that isn’t reputable

Dealing with a reputable company will help you avoid the many hardships that can be involved with selling your home. Do a little digging to find out if the company that’s trying to buy your home is accredited by the Better Business Bureau. You’ll also want to know if it has its own office space or if it’s a one man operation without a physical address. Does the company have a good reputation in the community for satisfying consumers?
