Last month I put a post up on my real estate blog distilling a few lessons from my own experience about things sellers do that turn buyers off, and vice versa. I was a little concerned that the article might cause some backlash among buyers and sellers -- protesting that the described behaviors were less harmful than I'd suggested. The outcome was exactly the opposite: The topic struck such a chord that nearly 100,000 people read the article, and almost 200 chimed in with their own entertaining (and somewhat worrying) anecdotes about house hunting and home selling. Some themes emerged, which I thought were "share-worthy" for those who are desperately seeking to uplevel their homebuying or selling game.
