1. Overpriced Home
Not a big surprise here. This was far and away the most common mistake that sellers make, preventing them from selling their home. Over price your home, and there is a pretty good chance no one is going to want to buy it. A homes value is determined by the market price buyers are willing to pay for a home. Real estate agents do not set the real estate market, buyers do. A good real estate agent will suggest a price to list your home based on comparable recently sold homes.

Overpricing a home to ‘see if you can get someone to bite’ is not a strategy employed by someone really serious about selling. Overpricing a home will lead to missed opportunities with buyers that are serious about buying in the range at which your home should be listed.
