Apopka FL Real Estate Common Selling MistakesMistake #1 -- Placing the Wrong Price on Your PropertyEvery seller obviously wants to get the most money for his or her product. Ironically, the best way to do this is NOT to list your product at an excessively high price! A high listing price will cause some prospective buyers to lose interest before even seeing your property. Also, it may lead other buyers to expect more than what you have to offer. As a result, overpriced properties tend to take an unusually long time to sell, and they end up being sold at a lower price.  VISIT MY WEBSITE FOR MORE COMMON SELLING MISTAKESRICK BELBENDIRECT (407) 341-1706AMERIVEST REALTY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA
