Buying or selling real estate can be an intimidating process, fraught with pitfalls for the uneducated and unwary. The more you know about what goes on behind the scenes, the better prepared you will be.

Home sellers can lose a large amount of time and money, if they fall into certain traps they were not even aware existed.

The number one, most common "sin", is not getting it clear in your mind as to why you want to sell. If you don't get this straight and say things like "Oh!, I just want a bigger house", then you don't have the proper mindset. If, on the other hand, you and your significant other, sit down and plan precisely what kind of home you want (2400 square feet, single storey, with a pool and a large yard in such and such a neighborhood etc.), then you have taken the right first step. If you don't do this, you will probably never sell and end up frustrating yourself, prospective buyers and your real estate agent.

The number two "sin" is not having your house ready to sell. Remember, you can never make more then one first impression. If your house is not ready and buyers and real estate agents see it, no matter what you do at a later date, you will unlikely get rid of that original picture in their minds, and so you will attract low ball offers!
