Is There a Reason Your Home Isn’t Selling?

Home for Sale

If you are trying to sell your home and it seems to be going slower than molasses in January, you may want to think about what you might be doing wrong. If your home has been on the market for months after repeated showings, there may be a reason your home isn’t selling. Check out these reasons below and see if maybe you are guilty of one or more of them.

Your Home is in Poor Coondition

You need to look at your competition and if you notice that a good chunk of homes in your market are not selling, you need to make your home outshine all the others. Look at homes that are pending sales and see what the condition of their homes are like. You may want to think about doing some much-needed repairs on your home before selling or at the very least, update the carpets and paint in your home.

Your Home is Priced too High

The bottom line is that homes that are priced too high will not sell. You, as a homeowner, should be well-educated when it comes to what homes in your market are selling for these days.

Your Home is in an Undesirable Location

Location is everything when it comes to selling your home. You could have the nicest house on the block for sale but if your location is less than desirable, your home may not sell as fast as you would like. Some home buyers will not even look at homes that are located next to a highway, located on a corner lot or situated on a main road.

Your Home has an Unpleasant Odor

If you are trying to sell a home that has pets or people that smoke, you may not realize that your home is a huge turnoff to potential buyers. You most likely can’t smell anything but have a friend or family member walk through your home and give you an honest opinion regarding any smells.

Any of these sound familiar? Fix the problem and maybe your home will sell.
