Home Not Selling? Here are 5 Reasons Why…

By Jeff Lichtenstein

It happens — you put your home on the market, and it sits…and sits…and sits without so much as the slightest bit of interest in the place you once called home. Despite your best efforts, no one wants to even look at your house.

What’s the problem? Well, it isn’t the community — because whether your home is in Frenchman’s Reserve, Ibis Golf & Country Club, or Cypress Island, there are still some things you may be doing wrong — however unintentionally — that are preventing your home from closing. Here are five things that may be preventing you from selling your home.

Your Home is Overpriced (Or Underpriced): Whether you like it or not, you have to list your home for market value, and within a reasonable bracket from market value. If you price your home too high, you will not obtain interest from potential buyers. One of our experienced team of Realtors can tell you whether your home is priced too high, too low, or just right.

Your Photos Aren’t Up to Par: Much as you may think that you can get away with basic cell phone photos of your home, the fact is, professional photography — and videography! — make all the difference in how your home is presented online. You’ve got to make your gem sparkle and shine!

There’s Too Much Clutter: Yes, we understand that you need to save that porcelain frog given to you by your great-great-grandmother. No, there doesn’t need to be 100 of those frogs all over the house. When you list your home for sale, you want to show a potential buyer that s/he can live in the home…so putting clutter, rows upon rows of pictures and books, and pots and pans all over the place is a big no-no.

You’re a Helicopter Seller: Your real estate agent knows what s/he is doing when it comes to selling your house. There’s no need to keep pestering him/her with constant update requests. Chill out!

You’re Trying to Sell it On Your Own: Yes, real estate agents charge a commission for the homes they sell. That commission, however, is small potatoes compared to how much time, effort, and money they expend on your behalf with regards to marketing & promotion of your home to their dedicated lead pool of interested buyers. If you try to go it alone, especially when you don’t have the resources available to you, you won’t sell your home at all.
