Four factors that make it difficult to sell your home

Today, we discuss four factors that may make it difficult to sell your home!

If you’re having trouble selling your home, the first problem that comes to mind is price. It’s a fact of real estate: price drives everything. So, if your home remains on the market, we may want to take a look at whether the home is overpriced. Even in the event that you are able to obtain a higher offer on your home, most offers are subject to appraisal, which can negate a high offer and bring you back to square one.

Another reason your home may be failing to sell is the condition it’s in. Are there any repairs that need to be made? Is the home cluttered? Make sure the home is clean and staged well to get the best results.

You need to depersonalize the home if you want people to be able to see their family living in the home. If a buyer walks into the house and feels inundated by your personal effects, it will be difficult for them to imagine the home as their own.

Lastly, if you feel like your home has been on the market for a while, take a look at the average days on market for homes in your area. If the homes in your area aren’t selling as quickly as in other areas, you should expect your home to remain on the market a bit longer.

We hope you found these tips helpful, as there is nothing more stressful than the inability to sell a home.
