Attention Sellers: Top 5 Nasty Little Homebuyer Turnoffs

Posted by Jody Deeds on November 10, 2009

ATTENTION HOME SELLERS: TOP 5 NASTY LITTLE HOMEBUYER TURNOFFS.

Ok…you or your Realtor have done a great job marketing your home and the showings are starting to schedule nicely. Don’t blow your first impression chance by doing these little things that immediately turn buyers off and make them run out the door, down the street and into the door of another home for sale instead of yours.

Who would think that these little tiny things could do so much damage? And…ultimately cost you, the seller, more money. Your home sits. You pay more carrying costs for mortgage and utilities. Oh yeah…and that house you had your eye on…well…you might just miss out on a 30% equity advantage by purchasing now while the market is down.

So here they are. The top 5 nasty little buyer turn offs.

1. TOILETS. Flush them, clean them and close them for your open houses and showings. YUK!

2. PET ODORS. Cats are the worst and most difficult to rid the house of. But, any pet odors that smack you as soon as you walk in the door is sure to keep those buyers from making that offer.

3. FRITO SMELLS. OK..not really Frito chips, but those oh so stinky dirty laundry baskets, closets full of stinky shoes and other closet, laundry room and shoe nook smells. Please Fabreeze.

4. TRASH. The saying, “One mans trash is another mans treasure”, well NOT so much when trying to sell your home. Empy those trashcans and get rid of the funk.

5. BACKYARD POO POO. Unless you want your doggies poo poo dragged into your home, you might want to get rid of the stuff before buyers arrive. Nothing screams BUY ME, like smelly poo on your shoe.

There are plenty of others, but this will get your started. Think about how buyers will see your home and what they expect.
