Here are five pieces of real estate advice to IGNORE:

MYTH: FSBO saves you money. 
FACT: Real estate agents are experienced and knowledgeable about home pricing. A good agent can help you get more ROI on your investment.

MYTH: Higher price = higher offer.
FACT: Pricing your home accurately will generate interest among the right buyers, and may even lead to a competitive bid and higher offer price!

MYTH: Open houses sell homes.
FACT: Open houses can be a helpful tool, but your agent should have a broader marketing strategy that also includes social and digital marketing. 

MYTH: The first offer is always the best offer. 
FACT: Lots of factors come into play here -- contingencies, closing date, down payment amount. Review all the terms of every offer -- don't just pick the highest offer price.
