Along the road of selling your home, you will probably have many different interested buyers. However, it doesn’t take much to lose this interest, especially considering how big of a decision buying a home is. If you selling Aurora real estate, consider these common missteps or turnoffs that can cause a potential buyer to lose interest.

You’re not friendly

Although in initial stages, contact may be brief, you will most likely get to meet prospective buyers once the transaction gets into the more serious stages. Any seller should keep in mind that even though the principle interest is in the house, the way you act can turn off prospective buyers from a sale. Try to be polite and not overbearing, and although it’s understandable that you’re attached to your home, try not to be territorial. Let them get a chance to have a thorough showing without your presence so that they can take a look without being distracted. If you’re annoyed by a showing’s timing and can’t leave your home, try to hide your annoyance.

They saw the neighboring properties

If the buyers liked what they saw on your online listing, this is a good sign. However, they haven’t seen the neighborhood yet. The buyer will be taking note of your surrounding area, neighborhood, and the properties right next to yours. Even if they love your property, if they don’t like the scenery they’ll have to look at every day, this can be a deal breaker. Many buyers can dislike surrounding properties so much that they may turn around and cancel the showing.

The home isn’t as impressive in person

It’s a great strategy to have high-quality photographs of your home, and to decorate strategically to make your home photogenic. In the photos, it is easy to hide or downplay a weak spot you have in the home, or you have excluded areas that need the most updating. But remember that even the best pictures and decorating don’t guarantee as that the buyer will like what they see in person. Perhaps it isn’t exactly what they imagined become disinterested. Or, the features that were purposely excluded from photos were deal breakers.

You don’t respond well to feedback

If your prospective buyers give polite feedback after a showing, take up the chance for some constructive criticism and don’t take it personally. Even if they have some negative things to say, they could still be interested with the intention of making some updates to suit their needs. This is why you should take criticism gracefully, and don’t assume you’ve lost a sale just because the buyer doesn’t like a few things.
