Is your home not selling? Here are some reasons why

Rate this post

It’s a seller’s market! That means if you’re a homeowner looking to flip your property, the world is your oyster, right? You can do whatever you like and the buyers will come scrambling to scoop up your home no matter what? If only. Because while the housing market in the U.S. right now definitely still leans more toward sellers than buyers, that doesn’t mean selling your home is a problem-free endeavor. Believe it or not, plenty of homeowners looking to sell are having trouble pulling it off and just can’t seem to get their house to move.

Now why would that be? Well if you’re looking to sell your home and haven’t had any bites yet, U.S. News and World Report has a few reasons that might shine a light on why:

  • It’s too personalized: If you want to attract buyers, you need to show them a house that they can imagine themselves living in – and having too much of “you” on display can get in the way of that. Since buyers and sellers are rarely going to see eye-to-eye on design tastes, skip that whole problem by keeping your personal items hanging around to a minimum while decorating rooms in neutral colors.
  • Too pricey: Just because the market is showing preferential treatment to sellers over buyers right now doesn’t mean they can get away with any price tag they want. After all, if your home is just too far out of the price range for many, they’ll simply move on to the next one. Now I’m not saying you need to give away the house for free, but when evaluating what your home is worth, price it competitively and keep sentimentality out of the equation.
