Why Isn’t My Home Selling?
Many people are often optimistic when they first list their home. They normally hope for an offer to come in very quickly. If the offers don’t begin to come in within a few months they may begin to worry. I have summarized a few key points in which may have caused this. Listed by the awesome article written by RISMedia which you can read here.
YOU OVERVALUED YOUR PROPERTY
Don’t make the mistake of overvaluing your property. Refer to your real estate agent to get a good idea of how much your house is worth.
YOUR LISTING IS POOR
Make an attractive listing! If your listing is full of errors or poorly taken photos it has less chance of selling.
YOU’RE ALWAYS PRESENT AT SHOWINGS
Many buyers will feel under pressure if the seller is present at showings. Let your real estate agent take care of these!
YOU’RE TOO ATTACHED
Some sellers are simply too attached to their houses to let go which results in less offers.
YOU HAVEN’T HAD YOUR PROPERTY PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED
A dirty house will deter potential buyers from making an offer. Make sure to have your home professionally clean to leave the best impression possible.
YOU HAVEN’T STAGED YOUR HOME
An empty house makes it hard for a buyer to visualize themselves living there. Hire a staging company to temporarily fill the property with furniture.
YOU KEPT UP ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL DECOR
Take all of those pictures of your children off of the walls. Buyers want to visualize themselves living in the home.
YOUR HOME IMPROVEMENTS ARE TOO PERSONALIZED
Painting your child’s room to look like the scene from their favorite video game might have been an epic idea but a new seller might not like it.
YOUR HOME IS TOO CLUTTERED
Don’t make your house feel smaller than it is by unnecessary clutter.
YOUR HOME IS IN NEED OF TOO MANY REPAIRS
“It needs some work” is not something you want to hear a potential buyer say. Fix as many little things as you can before listing your home.
YOU CHOSE THE WRONG REAL ESTATE AGENT
Not all real estate agents are created equal. Do some research and watch testimonials to find a good reliable agent.
