Why Won’t My House Sell?

You’re trying to sell a house that just won’t sell?

And yet – the news says the real estate market is heating up. The media is practically shouting again about multiple offers, high demand, and record-setting prices.

So where’s your contract?

These tips could be just what you need to help you sell your home.

Why isn’t my house selling? – 6 Tips To Cure It

1) Get good help.

Just like before, there are novice agents and investors rushing into the booming market trumpeting that they know what they’re doing. We respect anybody who wants to get ahead in life, but some just don’t take the take to truly become proficient before jumping in.

They oftentimes don’t help much. They’re getting hit hard with the nuances of financing, deal structure, and evaluation. Seriously, chances are good that real estate is your biggest investment – don’t trust just anyone’s advice. If you want great results, partner with the pros or someone who can show you they are capable of performing.

2) Don’t go overboard with the improvements.

Too often we see over-improved properties – those where the owners have gone too far. Even with the best of intentions, exceptional craftsmanship and true artistic talent, it’s incredibly challenging to exceed what the market is paying. Plus, most buyers want to add their own custom touches. Get rid of all the clutter and think “neutral”.

3) Do make the necessary improvements.

Unfixed stuff scares buyers. Show that you’ve been a responsible property owner and get all the little details fixed.

Don’t leave gaps in the trim or plates off of the switches. Get it inspected by a professional home inspector, and show off the healthy home report. This goes a long way towards establishing confidence that they’re making a good purchase.

4) Style and design matters.

Curb appeal is as important as the inside – so don’t neglect one part of the property to improve the other. Give buyers a cohesive impression of great style. Paint the walls, update the landscaping, and most of all – keep it immaculately clean. Consider hiring a professional designer to help tastefully stage the property.

5) Pricing matters a lot.

If you’re getting a lot of showings but not a lot of offers, you might not be too far off in price. If your best efforts to advertise your property aren’t making the phone ring, you’re probably overpriced.

6) Every property will sell – sometime.

There’s no magic formula – but there’s no substitute for experience.
