Has your home been sitting on the market for a long period of time? If so, you have come to the right place. When selling a home it is extremely important to know what to do in order to appeal to the highest number of potential buyers.

why is my house not selling

Price is too high.

One of the most common reasons a home does not sell is the price. The market is constantly changing causing home value estimates to fluctuate with it. In order to appeal to buyers, you should stay ahead of home value estimations and keep up with your home’s price. Buyers want the best value for their money, so they will keep looking elsewhere if the price does not fit their expectations.

Home Staging.

It is important to make sure your home appeals to potential buyers. In order to achieve this, you should consider having your home staged. Stagers know exactly what buyers are looking for, and how to make your home feel more attractive, spacious, neutral and organized. Staging can be done with your own furniture if you are still occupying the home or even with rentable furniture directly through the stager.

If your home is not staged it may be very personalized. When buyers are walking through a home they are trying to picture all of their things in the space, and how well the space would work for them. It makes it harder for buyers to keep an open mind in a highly personalized home.

The Right Photography.

In addition to staging, proper photography is also a necessity. Photos are the initial thing that bring a buyer into your home through sparking their interest. Photos of your home should be bright, clean and high quality. Photos that are not professional, dark and cluttered will allow your home to appeal to potential buyers.

Go the extra mile.

First impressions are lasting. The interior of your home is not the only selling factor. In addition to maintaining the inside, you should clean up the exterior as well. Curb appeal is something that is very important to buyers. Make sure you lawn and landscaping is always maintained and never overgrown when selling your house. You want to make sure buyers can view the whole exterior of your home when selling.

Hire the right Realtor.

Experience really does make a difference. Just like selecting a doctor or lawyer who has years of experience, consider the value of using an experienced Realtor to represent you. The Realtor you choose when selling your home is critical to your homes success.
