If you are ready to sell your home, or plan on selling in the near future, you may be having a hard time trying to find the

right path to a successful sale. There are many potential pitfalls involved in selling a home, but with the right knowledge

and expertise, you can make the sale of your home a complete pleasure. My professional experience can guide you

through any decision-making process regarding your home, giving you the best advice on increasing your home’s value in

today’s market. In the remainder of this month’s market update, I will briefly cover five mistakes that sellers commonly run

into. Feel free to contact me if you would like to know more about this topic or anything else regarding the value or sale of

your home.

Five Seller Mistakes to Avoid

1. Putting your home on the market before it is ready

Selling can be an exciting step toward your future. That being said, it is easy for sellers to skip proper preparation, thus

making hasty decisions. There is a lot of work to be done during the pre-sale stage, and having proper guidance will

ensure your ultimate success in selling your home. I show my clients how to prepare correctly from the start, which in

turn saves time and effort throughout the duration of the selling process. I can guide you through the proper steps,

advising what needs to be repaired, and how to make your home stand out from the competition.

2. Over-improving your home

There is a fine line between making home improvements and knowing what upgrades will bring you the highest returns.

Many sellers get mixed up in home improvement projects which might look nice, but in the end do not add any value to

their home. It is important to have a professional who knows your local market. Home improvements and upgrades need

to be balanced with other homes in your neighborhood to capitalize on your investment return. Let my knowledge and

experience bring out the best in your home.

3. Improper pricing of the home

Any seller can decide on an asking price, but ultimately, knowing the ins and outs of a particular market is the only way to

properly determine a specific sale price. I have access to a wealth of information regarding the sale of your home. I

utilize current and accurate sales data to pinpoint the ideal selling price for your property and can show you how to profit

from current market trends.

4. Getting emotionally involved in the sale

Your home represents many things to you. It is a symbol of security and a place holding many memories. One of the

toughest parts of the selling process is keeping your emotions at bay. A proper real estate agent will listen to your

concerns and stand up for you through tough negotiations. You deserve an experience that is as stress-free as possible.

When you are ready to sell your home, I can provide you with the peace of mind that will make the entire transaction a


5. Hiring the wrong agent

Selling a home on your own can be overwhelming. Hiring a real estate agent with a proven track record is an important

business decision that will ensure you peace of mind and a successful sale.

Testimonials Page

“We were introduced to Neil through a friend that had worked with him on a vacation home and felt he was the type of REALTOR we were looking for…patient, not pushy, and reliable. We explained to Neil what we were looking for in a second home in the Cape Coral area, he listened, and 2 weeks later we had a vacation home in Florida. Neil’s follow up before and after the sale couldn’t have been better. We have been recommending Neil to all of our friends!” Steve & Laura Malosh
I met Carolyn 4 years ago during a trip to Cape Coral. I was unhappy with my realtor at the time, who kept showing me overpriced properties and telling me what a good deal they were, and decided to give her a try, she seemed motivated and knowledgeable. She found me a couple of good deals on rental properties, even helped get some of the remedial work done, with contacts in the construction and service industry. Both were rented successfully within a few months. I’ve used her as a rental agent and as my buyer’s agent ever since. Curtis Heckman
The service and personal attention we received for Neil Masse during our investment purchases has been exceptional. His knowledge of the local market and his key contacts in the community helped us tremendously. Neil is multi-faceted in helping us with the purchase of the property, to finding renters for the property, to managing the property after they were rented. I would not hesitate to recommend Neil masse to any person looking to buy or sell a home. I will continue to seek out his services for any of my future real estate transactions.
