If you're selling your home, you have lots of decisions to make and probably no shortage of advice on what to do. Here's advice about some major mistakes to avoid when selling your home:

Selling Your Home

As the above picture illustrates, one of the major mistakes homeowners often make when they're selling their home is failing to see the clutter in a room. It happens slowly - over time, and it may seem like the chaos is orderly and completely under control to you. But potential buyers often see this kind of clutter and two things happen - and both of them are bad for you: 1) They are left with an impression that this space is small, cramped, and even dark and uninviting, and 2) They fail to visualize themselves in that space, which is the opposite effect you are

I arranged a surprise meeting for Jack and Kathy to meet Steve Sax for a casual coffee at Starbucks after we closed escrow on their home. For Jack, it was as if Christmas came early to see his reaction when Steve came walking towards him. When I listed their home in Granite Bay I noticed that they had one room dedicated to sports and most notable, Dodger memorabilia. Jack attended the 1988 World Series game where Kirt Gibson his is infamous home run and Steve Sax was in the on-deck circle and was the next at bat.

Jack was thrilled and had a rare opportunity to talk baseball with a Dodger legend. When I took their listing I hit the ground running to get their home staged, professionally photographed, advertised & listed on the MLS and on the Web.

If you're thinking of remodeling your home, it can be a very rewarding - and even a fun project to tackle. It can also be disappointing in terms of your return on investment (ROI), so careful planning and market research is not a bad idea.

In general, if you remodel a room or even your whole house and you plan to enjoy it for many years to come, then the financial return is probably much less of an issue for you. However, it's not uncommon for homeowners to
