Home Listing Mistakes That Keep Home Cumming Buyers Away

Anyone who has attempted to sell a Cumming house knows the disappointment of waiting days or weeks without a single buyer asking to view their home.  Even though it may be a spectacular home that the homeowner has grown out of, it seems no one is wanting to see it. But situations like this may not be about the house itself.  It probably has to do with the home listing.

Someone looking to sell their Cumming home must be careful not to create a home listing that makes buyers move on without a second thought.

Failing To Describe The Home

People actually look at the descriptions of Cumming homes.  Buyers see the same information regurgitated over and over throughout multiple Cumming listings.  So saying generic terms like beautiful home, fixer-upper, or great starter home is going to look like filler.  Describe what is really appealing about the house.

Focus on talking about what makes the Cumming neighborhood great, if it is within walking distance of major attractions, if the home is far from city life, or even the beautiful pool in the backyard.  Whatever makes the home special should be highlighted within the first few sentences of the description.

Showing Too Much

A good rule of thumb while selling a Cumming house is to avoid lying to buyers.  Do not try to cover up any problems. However, that does not mean these problems should be in the description of the house or in pictures.  

Taking a picture of the shabby looking roof is not going to have buyers clamoring to get a closer look.  They are going to flip to the next home listing where the roof is intact. Always put the best information out first and then let the buyers see the problems when they visit.

Pinching Pennies on Pictures

Cumming homeowners that decide to take their own pictures of a house are going to be disappointed.  Yes, they do save the money of not hiring a photographer but they are going to see their house sit on the market for months to come.  

Professional pictures sell houses much faster than anything taken on a person’s cell phone.  Find a photographer that takes real estate photos and really ‘wow’ those buyers. The pictures are what draws buyers in.  

Lack of Furniture

There is a balance between a well-staged home and a cluttered home.  Some people go the opposite direction and completely gut the house of furniture or decorations.  While many Cumming buyers are trying to imagine their own belongings in the home it is going to be difficult when they can not tell the bedrooms from the office.  Have at least basic furniture in each room with simple décor pieces.

Playing the Waiting Game

A Cumming homeowner that has their house on the market for more than a month may be feeling frustrated and they should be a little worried.  Many buyers have already passed by the house. The new buyers who are just starting to look tend to pass by on houses that have sat on the market too long, assuming something is wrong with the house.

Buyers will also look at the time a house has been on the Cumming market and compare it to the price of the home. If a house has been on the market too long they will expect the price of the house to reflect this.  To attract buyers, reduce the price of the house. This will send a notification to buyers who have viewed the house previously.

No Cumming buyers are going to look at a house that has a bad homelisting.  A bad listing can range from having a generic description or a too detailed description that shares too much about the house.  Or it might have bad photos showcasing all the problems in the house. Cumming homeowners have to have their home staged and ready to sell or they risk staying on the market for too long.
