Here are seven reasons why your home may not have sold yet…
The price is too high. Any house, in any condition, will sell – if the price is right. But buyers expect discounts for dated kitchens, old plumbing, bad paint colors and, yes, even clutter.
Your home is dark. A dark, vacant house does not give a good first impression. Closed drapes, dark paneling and an excess of dark leather furniture may not create the cozy look you intended.
Prospective buyers can’t get in to see it. If sellers restrict when their home can be shown, require a lot of notice or otherwise throw up roadblocks to buyers getting in, that makes the home harder to sell.
The listing photos are bad. Most homebuyers use photos to determine which homes to visit, the quality of photos can be crucial.
Your home is dated, and the price doesn’t reflect that. Lots of buyers will accept a home with original kitchens and baths – if the price is discounted to reflect the work they will have to do. But they won’t pay top dollar for a house that is not in top condition.
