Here are his top five selling no-nos:TOP FIVE SELLING NO-NOS1. THE DIRTY TOILETRemember to clean the toilet. Picture: GettyIn his 25 years as a real estate agent, Mr Winter has been inside thousands of homes and seen just about all the selling mistakes you can think of.But he said what continued to shock him was how many homeowners were prepared to try to sell a property without simply cleaning it.Some of the biggest buyer turn-offs included an unclean toilet, dirty laundry and unmade beds, Mr Winter said.“In fact anything dirty!”2. PERSONAL TOUCHESThought about adding your own flavour to the home before showing it off to someone else?A few pieces of statement art, perhaps, or that water feature you’ve been wanting to buy for the living room.Maybe hold off.“Very strong colours, certain design features that only you will like … you have to tone it all down because some things can actually put buyers off,” Mr Winter said.3. A BAD FIRST IMPRESSIONMr Winter said it was important the first point of contact in a home was fit to make a good first impression.If the paint is peeling off your front gate, paint it.If your security intercom is dirty and cracked, clean it or have it replaced.Otherwise, Mr Winter warns it could send out “all the wrong signals” to potential buyers.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investorless than 1 hour ago4. PESKY PETSMake sure potential buyers don’t see any mess created by your pets. Picture: GettyRemember it’s not just yourself you have to clean up after, but your pets too!“In the garden, the dogs can leave their messages,” Mr Winter said.“The cat’s litter tray, and even nasty odours — all can come from your pets, so don’t forget the pesky pet!”5. BEING UNPREPAREDRemember you’re not the only one trying to sell a home.Spring selling season is the most competitive time of year for buyers and sellers, with more homes to choose from.Mr Winter said it paid to know who your competition was and get ahead of them.“Know what you’re up against,” he said.“That way you can fight against the other listings and come out a winner.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:18Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:18 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels576p576p540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
