Top 5 reasons why your home isn’t getting sold

https://www.rockethomes.com/blog/home-selling/5-reasons-home-isnt-selling

Every home is different. While some may sell faster, others may sit on the market for a little longer. However, if your home isn’t selling and it has been quite a few months, it’s time you take a closer look at what the reasons could be. Here are the top five reasons, which could be making it difficult for you to sell your home right away.

  1. Your asking price is too high

Interest of potential buyers in your home is the highest when it comes on the market for the first time. So, getting the asking price right on day one is extremely important. If you find no buyer interested in buying it, perhaps you have overpriced it. It’s best to ask your real estate agent to complete a thorough comparative market analysis (CMA) that compares your home’s price to other similar homes in the region. This would help you figure out the best asking price to sell your home fast. Having lived in your home and being emotionally attached to it could make you think it’s worth more but don’t let your sentiments influence your judgment. Remember – your home’s correct value is the amount a buyer is ready to pay for it.

  1. Using low-quality photographs

Did you know that on a listing, over 95% of buyers look at the pictures of a home at first over everything else? Yes, that’s right. So, it won’t be an exaggeration to say your home’s initial showing occurs online. To capture your buyers’ interest from day one, you need to showcase your home in its best light by clicking pro-quality photos. You can take the DIY route, provided you’re confident with the task at hand. If not, hiring a professional real estate photographer is the best bet to ensure your home’s photos grab both attention and interest of potential buyers quickly. This way, you can sell your home fast.

  1. Inadequate marketing

Simply putting up a “for sale” sign on your front lawn isn’t enough to sell your home fast. You need to do adequate marketing too – be it on social media or reaching out to different sets of potential buyers. Hiring a competent agent will make the task easier for you. Apart from featuring your home on their blog or social media, a good agent or firm can even tap into their strong professional network to reach out to potential buyers proactively rather than waiting for someone to contact. You too can get recommendations from the people you know (family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, etc.), who have sold a house fast in the past to know about the steps that worked. If possible, you can imitate these steps for marketing your home.

  1. Your home’s condition

Though every home is different, you can do some simple things to enhance its visual appeal. From getting it brightly lit, de-cluttering the space, or giving it a fresh coat of paint to reorganizing the furniture to create more open spaces, you can use some simple steps to make your abode look more attractive to potential buyers. You could even think of improving your home’s curb appeal so that potential buyers who decide to drive by before asking for a tour would get impressed. Before you set up a showing, make sure to stage your home properly to get suitable offers fast. If your home has serious issues or needs major renovations/repairs though you can’t get them done, it’s best to be realistic with your asking price and remain flexible when negotiating with a potential buyer.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
