Top Reasons Why Your Home Isnt Selling

Top Reasons Why Your Home Isnt Selling

Many panic when their home does not sell right away. The real time to worry is when months pass by without any offers. Here are the top 11 reasons your home is not already sold.

1. By over valuing your home it will sit for months. The market will always dictate your home's worth. By using recent homes that have sold, it gives you a good indicator of your homes value. 

2. Poorly written descriptions without professional photos will be skipped over by active buyers.

3. Being present at the showings is never a comfortable feeling for the buyers.

4. Being too attached to the home and refusing to negotiate will increase difficulty with a potential buyer.

5. Not having a professionally cleaned home can leave a bad impression on prospective buyers. 

6. Staging Matters! Maximize space by hiring a professional stager. Size matters and the larger the space, the more desirable for the new home owner.

7. Depersonalize your space so the buyer can envision themselves living in the space.

8. Home improvements that are too personalized can backfire. 

9. Cluttered homes even while still a clean home can be an issue. Too much furniture in a room will make the room feel smaller.

10 Homes in need of many repairs will result in the likelihood a buyer will want your home. Many buyers want turn key homes that are move in ready.

11. Choosing the wrong agent will be the worst decision you make. A good agent will make all the difference when selling your home in a reasonable amount of time. Working with a professional will help you avoid the common mistakes people make.
