Home Seller Tips: Why are they being so critical of MY house?

Although the percentage of real estate agents who provide comments is low (my estimate 25%),  when received sellers must cull through the generic and learn from objective feedback.

Most often the feedback is filled with pleasantries like "showed nice, thanks.  Good luck."

And sometimes the feedback can be negative.

Sellers need to listen to the feedback objectively and not take a "Why are they being so critical of MY house?" attitude.

Consider the feedback and if the suggestions make sense and enhance your property’s attractiveness to buyers, do it.   It may be highlighting some items the seller should address for the next prospective buyers. 

On the other hand sometimes the negative feedback may just be a signal of interest.

As a seller's agent and a buyer's agent I have seen many cases where the "pot shots" increase as interest increases.

Prospective buyers may be using these negative "pot shots" to set the stage for a much lower than list price offer. 

As you prepare to sell your Brevard County, Florida home anticipate the "pot shots."  Address the issues early on so you will not be giving your prospective buyer support for a lower price.

There are three keys to selling your Brevard County, Florida home. I call them the "Three Ps of Marketing your Home."   One of these, presentation, is where sellers address the pot shots.  [I also have my Three Ps for Buying a House.]
