5 Reasons That Your Home May Not Be Selling

Thursday, November 15, 2018

There are times when sellers are desperate to sell their homes but nothing just happens, even if everything seems to be right. Things become tougher when time seems to be running out, in situations such as a deadline to join a job in another city or a dire need for funds. The challenge in such cases is to sell as soon as possible and the best approach is to find the possible reason that no buyer is approaching you with the right offer. Once you are able to discover why this is happening, it becomes easier to address the cause and get sale-ready. Here are some possible reasons that your home may not be selling.

Your home needs a refresh

The most important thing is the condition of the property that you are offering. Considering the competition in the real estate market, you will have to ensure that the place is top-notch in terms of curb appeal and interiors. Get the property ready before listing it because a few prospective buyers leaving with a bad impression can be harmful to your selling prospects. Have a good look at your home and give it a refresh and repairs where required.


Your home photos are not good enough

If you have not put up enough pictures on the listing, you may not be able to catch the eyes of the buyers. The same goes for photos that are not clear and impressive enough. Do not just confine yourself to the master bedroom but share photos of the other rooms and outdoors as well. Try to highlight the best and downplay your weaknesses in these pictures. Investing in professional-grade photographs can just do the trick.



You are not open or available for potential buyers

Some sellers struggle to sell for something as simple as non-availability for home seeing. When potential buyers or agents call you up, be open to receive them. Schedule a time when you are available and make sure that you welcome them with warmth and have the home in a presentable state. Decluttering is the key to sell fast because buyers would be interested in homes that give them a good impression right at the first visit.


You have hired the wrong agent

The role of your real estate agent in selling your home is critical and hiring a wrong one can be a major hindrance for getting a good deal. Check out their credentials and experience to ensure that you have the right one working for you. Reputed agents like HomesInMeridian.com post the testimonials of real clients on their websites. You can go through them to get a better idea of their competence.


You have quoted a wrong price

The biggest reason that your home may not be selling could be pricing it wrong. Overpricing is a mistake that can cause delay and sometimes even leave you without an offer. Do some good research on the prevailing prices or seek expert help of a real estate specialist before you quote the selling price. A little flexibility can help for ensuring the closure of the deal.


Try to assess the exact reason that you may not be able to sell your home and address the concern accordingly. This approach makes you a smart seller as it increases the chances of selling fast as well as getting a good price for the property.
