#1. Overpricing

An overpriced property will deter any potential buyers from even arranging a viewing and making an offer and it will most likely result in you wasting your own time. In the current Dubai market its essential to price your property correctly from the beginning with your agent. An experienced area specialist will be able to help you with this using the latest data and tools.

#2. Bad Photos

When it comes to selling a property, a picture really is worth a thousand words. With more buyers searching online than ever before, great photos are an absolute must. Avoid photos with bad lighting or any that are blurry and poor quality. If your home isn’t presented properly online it’s unlikely they will even enquire!

#3. Listing With Multiple Agencies

In Dubai you can list with up to 3 agencies however I have seen owners list with many more. From an agents’ and buyers’ perspective, this makes the seller come across as either desperate or difficult and gives the impression there maybe something wrong with the property which will eventually encourage low offers.

Agents and buyers have the same access to all the portals so there really is no need to list with more than one. It can also become confusing if you’re getting mixed messages from agents who are having to compete with each other. It’s much better to take your time, choose the right specialist agent from the start who understands what you want to achieve and will work hard to do so.
