Mistake 1 – Setting a high asking price

A lot of sellers will search online to see what other people are asking for similar properties. They then set their price either at or above this figure hoping to cash in. Ultimately, almost no one sells a property for the asking price. Setting the asking price too high leads to long, convoluted negotiations that can be difficult to close.

What you should do – Set a competitive price

At Century21 Skylux, we advise clients to set their asking price 5-10% below the prices you find online. Doing this puts the seller at an advantage when negotiating since it provides less room for a potential buyer to try and drive down the price. When sellers list their property at a competitive price, closing a deal is easier.

Mistake 2 – Using low-quality photos

This is a very common mistake. Some sellers believe that people will be attracted to their property no matter what and simply take pictures on a camera phone. Research shows the first thing a person looks at when searching for property online are the pictures. If they see bad photos, they quickly move on to the next property.

What you should do – Hire a photographer

Hiring a photographer for a few hours to shoot some high-quality pictures of your property is one of the best investments you can make. This is a quick and affordable way to make your property more appealing to potential buyers. If you need help, Century21 Skylux offers photography service for a low fee of THB 2,599.
