What can I do if my house isn’t selling?

You are ready to start over in a new home and you need to sell the home your currently living in. You do a few things and insist on having it on the market but its not getting offers. What can you do?

Asses the listing price, did you list your home too high? Have your agent do a CMA and go over all the comparable homes to support a competitive price.

What was the feedback during showings? Have several people mentioned that they can smell a odor in your home, feels small and cramped? If the feedback is things that can be fixed, start addressing those issues. Clean up the house, get rid of odor, declutter and make it feel big and open.

Some feedback might be something that could potentially cost quiet a bit of money. Does the home need a new roof, the furnace is way past its life expectancy or is not working properly? These types of issues may need to be reflective in a price reduction, that would make the home appeal to a buyer.

Are you making the home assessable to buyers? One of the biggest issues is difficulty getting into a home to show to potential buyers. If they must rearrange work schedules, or daycare to get the opportunity to see your home, they may decide it’s not worth looking at. This can be such a deal breaker for buyers and they quickly find another home that is easier to get into to go see and your home is already forgotten.

Have you already received an offer or 2 but you’re not willing to negotiate? Your agent isn’t saying you should cave and give into low offers or accept an offer that does not add up. However, you can’t say no to everything on offers and expect to sell your home quickly.

If you would like more information please give me a call, I’d love to sit down with you and help you sell your home.
