Home Not Selling…We Can Help!
It’s not unusual for a home to take 6 months or longer to sell but once it gets beyond that, a seller can understandably start to worry. Wondering what’s keeping your home from selling? Here are a few possible reasons and what you can do about it.
The price is too high
Of course you want to break even or come out ahead when selling your property. Who wouldn’t want that? However, it’s important to be realistic and pay attention to the current conditions in the real estate market. Be sure that your price falls in line with similar properties in terms of size, location, and condition.
The property is located in a less than ideal location
Anyone who knows real estate knows that it’s all about location! A less than ideal location can include large amounts of traffic, noise, or commercial properties. In these situations, the price often needs to be adjusted to accommodate the issue but in areas that are not well maintained, you can make your own property look as presentable as possible to further attract prospective buyers.
The home is in need of major repairs
Whether or not to repair your home before selling is a question that plagues many owners. If you’re selling as is, you should definitely expect the selling process to take longer or be prepared to accept a lower amount than perhaps you were looking for. You can choose to roll the cost of the repairs into the selling price, or just take care of them yourself beforehand. Yes, some buyers look for fixer uppers but will often steer clear of a major headache.
The photos don’t do it justice
The average home in the United States sells for more than $250,000. When we’re talking about this much money, the home should be represented in the best possible light. Make sure that you have ample lighting and take high definition pictures. And hey, if the paint needs a little updating, slap a new coat on it. After all, repainting can add significant value to your home!
The decor is outdated
Just like with repairs, many buyers don’t want to take on a major project. From carpets to wallpaper, a prospective buyer can easily be turned away by outdated decor. When selling a home, a few simple updates can often go a long way.
