Your home has been sitting on the market for months and you’re losing patience and faith. Although the market places a significant role on how fast your home moves, there are factors within your control that may be causing your home to sit there.
The listing price is unrealistically.
Homes are where memories are made. Sellers a personal connection to what you are selling so you value you it higher than others. Unfortunately, emotions must stay out of the pricing process. It’s crucial to list your home at a competitive price from the start so that you don’t deter potential buyers from the get-go. Research what homes are selling for in your area and price accordingly. A professional real estate agent has tools to help determine average home sales in your neighborhood as well as features your home has that can increase value.
The showing schedule is inconvenient.
The home still looks like your home.
There’s no Selling Strategy to speak of.
Before you place your home on the market you should formulate a plan for how you’re going to market and sell. Professional photography should be at the top of the list of to-do’s. Homebuyers browsing online expect to see a home in the “best of light”. Photos taken on your iPhone or with terrible lighting will and does make your home look less than appealing. Along with photos, staging your furniture and items to showcase unique features of the home and downplay personal touches can help appeal to a broader set of buyers.
