Poor quality photos on your online advertisements

Is your agent working?
Sometimes, everything is set up well but your real estate agent is not working hard enough to sell your home. Your real estate agent should be in charge of the marketing and advertisement, repair, arrangement and selling of your property.

Some agents overlook property simple because they have better deals. Before you commit yourself to an agent, screen and interview them. Look at their ratings, talk to their past clients and ask for a qualification letter. Ensure you are only working with the best.
The curb appeal of your house may be chasing your clients away
The first impression of your home is the curb appeal. If the front of your home does not look attractive, you will not get the customers you want. If you have clutter, dead vegetation and uneven land on your front loan, nobody will want to buy the property. You can hire a professional to keep your front loan tidy and plant all the necessary vegetation, like flowers, to keep your front loan looking clean, healthy and beautiful. Some few lights here and there will make the house look better in the night.
When you market your property online, ensure you have all the details written down correctly. Sometimes, the issue can be just a single number on your phone or your pricing.
