5 Reasons Your Home Isn't Selling
Real estate agents are there for a reason, and if you don't want your listing to sit in the market for months with little to no offers, it would help to follow the set of advice your agent gave you.
But if you are like most sellers, you probably found it easier (for some reason or two) to pass on the advice and instead just did your thing. Well, these are possibly the 5 reasons why your home isn't selling according to Realty Times:
You overpriced your home
Unless this is your agent's first ever real estate deal, then they should already know how much properties sell in a certain area. And if your agent tells you that your home is overpriced, you should seriously consider cutting down the tag. Work with your agent on a price that will bring in instead of scare off potential buyers.
You have got too much stuff
Potential buyers will not be pleased to see cabinets bursting of stuff and kids' toys strewn all over the floor. You don't just show the buyers how little effort you gave to maintaining the house, but you also make the space look smaller, dated, and storage-deprived than it actually is.
You did not repaint your home
Peeling or uneven paint does nothing to help you get your home sold. The potential buyer will feel like the home wasn't well taken care of plus the thought that they have to spend extra to do the repainting might put them off. So don an old shirt and start painting away with a neutral color. This will instantly give your home that new vibe without really doing much.
You neglected the repairs
If your house has gone through one too many showings and still hasn't sold, then maybe you should start doing something about those repairs that previous potential buyers pointed out to you before. Who wants to buy a house with leaky faucets, loose ceiling boards, and drawers sticking out when there are many others they can buy at tip top shape?
You didn't bother to stage
Home staging is one of the real estate steps that you can't skip. Potential buyers would want to be able to imagine how a space will work for them and if you leave rooms empty, it might give them the impression of a space that works for nothing.
