6 Reasons Why Your House Isn’t Selling

By Laura Anderson

1. Unrealistic Price

Real estate experts says this is the big cause of failed home sales in a booming market. Strong selling market is no reason to inflate your price beyond comparable sales. Vendors believe strong selling markets are opportunities to inflate your price beyond comparable sales but the property will sit on the market and remain unsold until the vendor is willing to lower their asking price and ‘meet the market’.

2. Poor Presentation

An overgrown garden, flaking paint, filthy carpets, bathrooms and kitchens, empty or overcrowded rooms all contribute to the fact that potential buyers can’t or don’t want to see themselves living there.

3. You’re Unmotivated To Sell

Do you know why you are selling? If not you’re probably uncommitted to the sale. This is one of the key reasons a home doesn’t sell when the rest of the market is booming. If a seller has not got clear on their ‘big why’ which equates to being under committed to the sale, or the price they want to make it worth their while to sell is above what the market is willing to pay, even in in boom times their property won’t sell.

4. Photos – More Woe Than Wow

You only get one chance to make a big impression when selling a house. When selling your house having fantastic photos is very important. You want buyers to prioritise inspecting your property over the other open at the same time.

5. No Web Profile

If your property is not online today how can it find a market of buyers? Advertising and marketing are musts when selling homes.
