REASONS YOUR HOUSE DIDN’T SELL

HERE ARE A FEW REASONS WHY YOUR HOUSE AREN’T SELLING

1. Price is too high

If you priced the home yourself, consult a real estate agent for advice. A top agent should be able to tell you at once if your asking price is too ambitious. Another way is to listen to the feedback you’re getting from people at open houses and showings. You can even just browse local listings.

2. Your listing photos aren’t professional photos

Hire a professional to re-do your listing photos. This is something your agent should have arranged for you at the outset, and one of the things your commission is going to pay for.

3. Your curb appeal is no good

Upgrade your landscaping, get your grass a brilliant green, plant a few flowers, and fix anything obviously broken on the front of your home.

4. Your staging is bad

Make little upgrades, paint, fix anything that’s broken, clean up your yard, and do a brutal decluttering pass.

5. You’re getting bad advice

Make sure you’re working with an agent who is an expert in your area or the kind of home you’re trying to sell.
