Top 3 Home Selling Myths | Oahu, Hawaii


With so much information available about selling residential real estate, I’m surprised that I keep hearing the same misinformation over and over. Hi, I am Fawn Bertram with Homes by Fawn and Hawaii Life Real Estate. Here are the Top 3 Myths about selling residential real estate.

Myth 1

Sellers often believe – “I need to price my house with enough room to negotiate.” This belief can cost money. A new home on the market gets the most activity in the first 30 days. If the home is overpriced, it will sit. The longer it sits, the less sellers make. A good agent knows how to price a home, stage it, and market it to help you get top dollar in the shortest time possible and negotiate on your behalf to get that price.

Myth 2

The less commission I pay, the more I’ll make. The truth is, agents who excel in this business do not discount services because they don’t need to. Experienced agents know how to price your home, and aggressively market it, which will net sellers more money. It all boils down to the fact that you get what you pay for.

Myth 3

All agents are the same. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Just like in every profession, there are those who are committed to excellence and devote time and energy to being highly skilled problem solvers and true professionals. Others do the minimum to get by. Working with a full-time agent with an proven marketing plan and strong negotiating skills will ultimately put more money in your pocket in less time.
