- * Your asking price may be too high. If it has been over 30 days since your last offer, you may want to consider reducing the price.
- * There isn’t enough advertising or marketing for your home. Where does your agent list your home for sale? There are various websites such as Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com which are searched consistently throughout the day by potential buyers. Other factors can be if enough photos were taken to show off your home to others, if brochures or postcards were distributed, and if a virtual tour was created.
- * There are too many personal items throughout your home. It’s hard, but having photos of your family in the hallway makes it tough for someone to imagine their own family in your home. Move your personal items such as photos and even figurines into storage to allow the buyer’s imagination to run wild.
- * There may be too many repairs, or the home looks run down. Ensuring that your carpets are cleaned, the walls and flooring is free of stains and discoloration, and the leaky pipe is fixed can entice a buyer to place an offer!
