Five Reasons Your Home isn't Selling

Five Reasons Your Home isn't Selling

Oftentimes you need to sell your old home before you can even think about buying a new one. So if your home isn't selling it can really put a hold on your dreams of purchasing a new home. This problem isn't an inevitability. Even when the market isn't so hot you can successfully sell your home if you take the right steps. If you are wondering why you are unable to sell your house, consider these five reasons which might be the cause.

  1. Your price is too high. If your home has been on the market for a while and you just can't seem to sell it, you may need to reevaluate the price. A home with too high of a price tag will almost certainly be passed up by buyers in favor of homes which are going for a fair value. Make sure that before you put a price on your home you bring in a professional to evaluate it and give you an accurate and fair value which you can ask buyers to pay.

  2. You have the wrong agent. You aren't doing yourself any favors if you are working with a subpar agent who can't get the job done. The longer your home sits on the market the less attractive it can become, and if your agent is the problem you can fix it by finding a better one. Make sure your agent is doing all that she can to sell your home, and if she isn't then hire someone new.

  3. Your house needs some updates. If your home is older it may need some work before a buyer is willing to purchase it. This will mean investing some money, but usually updates raise the value of your home and you will get a return on your investment when you sell it. Consider updating the appliances, kitchen, bathroom, and/or floors in your home if it is taking too long to sell. If you fix your home before selling in Grand Prairie, you are more likely to be successful.

  4. You need to depersonalize it. Homes that have too much of a personal stamp from the current owners are not very appealing to prospective buyers. If your home has been on the market for a while, the problem might be your taste in decorating. This sounds harsh, but buyers can be very finicky. Consider having your home professionally staged to make it more appealing to the people looking to buy it.

  5. It needs better curb appeal. The problem with your home may be on the outside. If your lawn is unkempt, your paint is peeling, or the outside is in disrepair, buyers are likely to look somewhere else for their new home. You can raise your curb appeal by tidying up, landscaping, and investing in a new coat of paint or some gutter repair. Another great option is a new garage door. Better curb appeal with invite buyers in to see more, so don't neglect these details.
