Why Has Your House Been Up For Sale For Months?

It can be a nightmare when you want to move but you are receiving no offers on your property. It can certainly feel like you are never going to be able to move from your old stomping grounds. But you need to look more closely at why you are not receiving any offers. That way, you can make some changes so that you can find a buyer quickly! Here are some things that you can switch up when your house has been on the market for a long time:

You Are Pricing the House Too High: Of course, when it is time to sell, you want to get as much as possible for your home. That way, you can put a good amount towards your new property. However, if you overprice your house, you could end up with little interest. Potential buyers will just go and look at other properties which are selling for less. Take a look at homes which are selling in the area and see how much they are going for. You might find that they are all slightly less than what you have your home up for. Then, it might be the case that you need to drop your price by a couple of grand so that you get more viewings at your home. Just don’t go too low so that you are left out of pocket if the home sells!

You Are With the Wrong Realtor: It’s easy to end up making a mistake when it comes to your estate agent. You might be tempted by their good deals and ideas, but when it comes to actually selling your home, they might let you down. You should have a look at the photos and the content about your property. Is it really selling your home? If the photos are of poor quality, you might find that people won’t come for viewings. Ask the realtor to revise the images to ensure that you are getting the most possible views on your home, And remember, if you are unhappy with your realtor, you could switch to someone else. Or you might even decide to go through a different option such as sell homes for cash. That way, you can quickly get a sale and then can finally move out to your new humble abode!

Your Home Isn’t In a Good Condition: When people struggle to sell their home, it’s often down to the property itself. If your home isn’t in the best condition, you are going to struggle to get offers. It could be due to things like a poor kitchen or an old bathroom which is causing you to not get viewings. So you should consider updating these to ensure that you get a buyer quickly. Or it might be things like that wacky wallpaper in your bedroom which is stopping viewings! To sell the home quickly, try and make sure your home is as neutral as possible. This helps people to imagine their own stuff in the property and will make them more likely to make an offer!

And remember to work on the curb appeal so that you sell the property quickly. You can read my previous blog for help improving the exterior appeal!

  1. Remove your clutter, de personalize your home. While you love your family it is best if the buyer can see their family in your home. I recommend pack up at least 1/2 of your stuff. You will have to pack when you move anyway so you are just getting a jump on your move.
