The Biggest Mistake Home Sellers Make And How To Avoid It

of the investment, but no return on the investment.  How many of us would make a similar investment in shares or anything else for that matter? Many people will see obvious flaws in the above comparison, so let’s address them.  Obviously, not all homes need renovations or indeed any money at all spent on them.  The above comparison simply illustrated the differences in typical return on investment for clever renovations, as opposed to real estate commissions.  In addition, most people will say that paying a commission is the necessary cost of having a professional to take care of the sale.  This is simply not true.  Most people should rely on an experienced marketing professional when selling, however, paying around 2.5% plus GST of the sale price is completely unjustified.  Thankfully there are better alternatives available for vendors that can help them maximise how much they can pocket from the sale, without compromising the sale price. After years of helping people with marketing their home, I have found that real estate commissions are the costliest and worst investment anyone can make when selling their home.  Unfortunately, it is also an expensive mistake that costs Australian home sellers around six billion dollars each year.  Anyone paying a real estate commission is unnecessarily leaving many thousands, or tens of thousands of dollars on the table and making a big mistake.
