Are you selling your home or thinking about selling your home? Today we are going to cover 5 Reasons Why Your Home Just Isn’t Selling.
Reason #1 – Unrealistic Pricing
As you have probably heard by know, we are currently experiencing a “seller’s market”, but that DOES NOT MEAN that you can list your home for any amount your want! Work with your real estate agent to develop a realistic price range based on recent sales in your neighborhood. If you are aggressive with your price, you will attract the attention of buyers.
Reason #2 – Clean Your House
Plain and simple, homes NEED to be neat and tidy when they are listed for sale.
Reason #3 – Poor Photos
Just like pretty much everything else now-a-days, the VAST majority of buyer look for homes ONLINE. SO if you don’t have beautiful professional photos of your home, potential buyers won’t even be interested in seeing it in person. MAKE SURE your real estate agent hires a professional photographer to showcase your home in its best light.
Reason # 4 – Not Giving Access
Remember that buyers do not live by your schedule. If they want to see the home at a reasonable time, LET THEM SEE IT. Even if the timing is inconvenient for you.
Reason # 5 – Wrong Real Estate Agent
Not all real estate agents are created equal. A poor listing agent will allow you to overprice the home to get the listing. They will do little to market the home, and will be unresponsive to interest from other agents. Interview several agents before choosing the one to list your home. It WILL be worth the extra time.
