Why Won’t My House in Bergen Not Sell?

The thing is, selling a house is not easy. It doesn’t matter if it’s in Bergen County, or in Hudson County, or anywhere else in New Jersey or the world, for that matter. Selling properties is a tough business, especially if the market is down and more people are looking to sell than there are looking to buy.

But, as tough as it is to sell a house, there could be a couple of legitimate reasons why your Bergen County home is not selling as fast as you’d like, such as:

1.     Overpriced

Take a look at the market around you. How much do the houses sell for? How much are you selling your house for? How long does it usually take for a house in your area to sell?

If your property has been on the market for quite some time, it is possible that you might be asking for too high of a price.

2.     Unfixed Stuff

Broken and unfixed stuff in the house scares prospective buyers. After all, if there are broken things that can be seen immediately as you enter a house, what else could be broken that’s not visible to the naked eye, or at least, not evident at first glance? Not to mention, too many broken things speak to the overall condition of the house, and all in all, it just doesn’t paint that good of a picture.

Compare this to a house that’s well-maintained with all of the little details fixed.

If a buyer walks into a house like that, they’ll think that the seller is a responsible home owner and they’ll be much more confident about making a purchase, even if they have to pay a premium for it.

3.     Over Improvement

An opposite to leaving stuff unfixed, there’s also the case of over improvement.

Sometimes, homeowners improve their house thinking that buyers will like what they did, but, the truth is, what they have done might have just turned off most interested buyers.

Remember, if you plan on repairing your house to sell, don’t renovate it to the point that it speaks more about your personality anymore. Buyers want to feel welcome and at home when they step inside your house, so, going for a more “neutral” renovation is the best way to go.

4.     No Help

Work with an experienced real estate agent that has had tons of experience working with Bergen County real estate properties. This way, you know exactly what they are doing. Sure, you’ll have to pay quite a bit for their services, but it’s worth it when the return is that you’ll be getting more than what you initially paid for.

Remember, your real estate is a huge investment if not your biggest ever – listen only to the pros.

If your house near Bergen County is not selling, you may want to look at these reasons. There’s a huge chance that you’re making at least one of these mistakes. If nothing else, you should look at working with professional cash buyers in your area.

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
