Mistakes Made When Selling in Las Vegas

Selling your Las Vegas home can be as fun as it can be challenging. For many, it can be difficult to part with the place where you’ve made so many memories. For others, out-growing a home comes faster than expected. For anyone looking to sell their home, there are a number of steps to be taken to get your home out there, in front of the buyers who crave a space like yours, and there’s the risk of making a mistake in the process. Las Vegas is growing with more people moving, typically from other states, to start a new chapter with a different pace. The city boasts lots of options for fun, adventure, and world-class entertainment. Somewhere in the throngs of house-hunters is the party that you’re seeking.  

The challenges in selling your Las Vegas home can be discouraging, and sometimes costly. If you’ve found that you’ve made a mistake on this list, don’t worry – there’s a solution. To prevent the mistakes that can set you back in your mission to sell your home, take your time as you move through the home-selling process, and don’t be afraid to reach out to someone for help. 

Mistake #1: Skipping Selling Season

Spring and Summer, or roughly March through August, are the best times to try to sell your home, whether or not you live in Las Vegas. Part of the reason for this is because school is out: families are generally beholden to the nation’s general school schedule, and these seasons are the times when children all over are on their academic breaks. Removing children from one school and enrolling children in school is already a hassle, but having to do so in the middle of the school year can cause a serious disruption to a child’s education as they struggle to adjust to new surroundings, and keep up with school. For this reason, among others, the single-family residential real estate market rises and plateaus according to the schedules of children and families. Single people and childless couples, of course, are rarely concerned about the timing of the first day of school during a necessary (or unnecessary) move. 

Spring and summer are also the season when more people feel the need to spend more time outside. More time outside in the agreeable weather means more willingness to spend time out shopping for a new home, which can bring more buyers to your (soon-to-be-former) front door. 

Mistake #2: Not Using a Real Estate Agent

You’re never obligated to use any service that you don’t feel is necessary while you’re selling your Las Vegas home, but choosing to contact an experienced, local real estate agent will make things much easier on you. The benefit of hiring a Las Vegas real estate agent is two-fold: you’ll have more time for yourself and your family, and also, more money for your home. Last year, single-family homes garnered an extra $60,000, on average, when the homes were represented by a local real estate agent, versus similar FSBO homes. Part of the reason for this is the fact that real estate agents have access to advertising mediums about which you may not even know. Real estate agents and realtors also have extensive networks that can help them reach people who are looking for a new home.     

Their networks and scheduling flexibility is exactly how Las Vegas real estate agents are able to save you time: an agent’s job includes scheduling and managing open houses, as well as pitching all of the great things about your home to potential buyers, both in an out of your home. You can absolutely schedule and manage your own open house, if you would like, but don’t forget that you’ve hired a professional to do these things for you. Minimize your stress, and allow your agent to do the work that can help you. 

Mistake #3: Not Considering Cash Offers

This option is not the best option for everyone, but if you need to sell your Las Vegas home quickly, or just don’t want to spend as much time worrying about paperwork, the option to accept a cash offer is there for you. Cash offers are a quick, cheap, and easy way to sell your home without all of the worries of a traditional sale. It’s never ideal to have to part with your home before five years have passed, or before a major life event, but when the unexpected happens, it’s an option that can help you out of a tough situation. Yet again, an experienced real estate agent will be the best ally you can have to guide you through the process – and likely, your buyer, as well. If you accept a cash offer for your home, you’ll have the money quickly, and you might be able to close the sale in as little as three weeks. Imagine being ready to move as soon as possible, and actually being able to do so! A cash offer for your home can make this a low-worry, low-maintenance reality. 

Mistake #4: Putting off Repairs, Especially Big Ones

Long-term homeowners get it: you can easily learn to live with flaws in your home, and you may cease to notice them after a while. When you’re ready to move out of your home, though, you’ll need to make sure you’ve got your home repairs scheduled, and seen through to the end. Make sure, also, that none of your home’s necessary fixes are caused by water damage. Especially in a place as warm as Las Vegas, water damage can create a lot of trouble: all that dangerous and quickly-growing molds need to thrive is water, and darkness, and heat only helps it to thrive. Keeping up with home repairs, exploring all of your options, and considering the services of a real estate professional will help you and your loved ones stay safe and sane as you search for your perfect new home. 

There are alot of things to consider when you’re selling your Las Vegas home, but you only have to go through the process alone if you would like to. Always consider calling a real estate agent to help you save time and money.

Me and my wife had gone through a divorce and we wanted a quick way to get rid of our property so we could just move on with our lives, Thankfully Ryan came in and helped us out, I didn't have the time to deal with the headache of people coming in and out as well as all the repairs that were needed. He gave me top dollar for my home and I was out in 7 days!

We have seen their signs around town and thought it was a scam, we decided to give them a call and I couldn't have been happier with our experience. They were professional and knowledgable, they paid for all closing costs and even helped with our family move. Great guys and great company! Thanks again!

What an AWESOME experience!! Casey and Ryan are THE BOMB!! They either answer their phone ALWAYS or respond within minutes. They originally called to see if I wanted to sell but I wasn't interested in selling. However, my neighbor had to sell immediately so I referred them to her, she accepted their offer & they closed escrow within weeks. It would've been A LOT sooner but there were delaying issues on the seller side. Anyways, they got it closed & EVERYONE is happy!! Thank you so much Casey & Ryan :). YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

I started off using a realtor thinking that I would be able to sell my home fast, but that wasn’t the case. I ended up reaching out to different companies and I ended up finding We Buy Any Vegas House. They were on it the second I reached out to them and were able to sell my home fast!

Unfortunately, I never thought I would see myself having to get rid of my home, especially in a fast time frame. However, life happens, and I needed to sell my home quickly due to a death in the family. I reached out to 4 companies in Las Vegas, and We Buy Any Vegas House not only was the most efficient, but the friendliest, most reasonable, and compassionate. The other 3 companies did not even compare. Casey and Ryan have gone above and beyond to make sure that this worked for me. They truly care about you, which means a lot especially during a tough time. They put in the effort to care about the client first, as well as my family during this tough time. I am so grateful to have found them, and to top it off, they bought my house and put cash in my pocket in 7 days. Would recommend to all! Use this company, you can't go wrong! Thanks to Casey, Ryan and John!

After a tenant trashed my rental property, I was faced with the decision of remodeling or selling the property in its current state. I called Casey and he walked me through the entire process, start to finish. After factoring in the amount of time and money the remodel would take, it was clear that selling to them was the best decision for me. Within a week of my first contact with Casey and his team, we closed on the property and I had cash in hand. I'll definitely be reaching out to them in the future. THANKS!!!

As a very skeptical person I always believe that my best interest is not priority when dealing with people that want my business. I cannot name the countless times that I have been burned. After looking to sell my house for a cash offer, I was called by a lot of investors, most of which had very little customer service. Several didn't return call when they said they would and then when they finally called me back, they got anger when I decided not to use their Services. From day one Ryan not only treated me like is #1 customer but also treated my whole family like long time friends. I most also state that his offer wasn't even the highest. I took the lower off with him due to the fact that he help with crucial tax situations that I needed taken care before receiving them money so it wouldn't bit me in the butt later. He answered every call before and after the process was completed. 99% of others wouldn't have even answered a text once they got the money. Could I have made a couple of thousand dollars more with someone else? Sure, but the peace of mind in knowing that it was done the right way by someone who actually was professional and care was more than worth it. Ryan has made a customer and friend for life.

I was in a really tough spot because my Husband was in the Hospital and had passed away. I was completely unready for this and had discovered that there would be considerable expenses!  I had received several letters from companies interested in the property on an "as is" basis.  Most had never got back to me after I called them or were too low of offers.  I put an inquiry in their website and was immediately contacted by the Owner who was able to come the very next day!  The entire process was easy and professional.  Thank you We Buy Any Vegas House!
