Top mistakes today's sellers make

If you really want to secure a buyer, follow this advice

Low interest rates could spark a pickup in the home-sale market in some areas. If you’re inclined to sell, here are some mistakes you’ll want to avoid.

The biggest mistake sellers make is listing at an unrealistic price. If you want or need to sell, your home must be priced at or under current market value, particularly in places where prices are declining.

To avoid pricing too high or too low, carefully research your local market before selling.
