Is your home listing gathering dust, leaving you wondering what went wrong? Let's explore three crucial questions to help you understand why and what you can do next.
One common mistake when selling a home is restricting potential buyers' access to view it. Being flexible with your showing schedule can significantly impact your chances of a successful sale. After all, minimal access means minimal exposure to buyers. ShowingTime advises:
“. . . do your best to be as flexible as possible when granting access to your house for showings.”
When selling your house, the old saying matters: you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Putting in the work to make the exterior of your home look nice is just as important as how you stage it inside. Freshen up your landscaping to improve your home’s curb appeal so you can make an impact upfront. As an article from U.S. News says:
“After all, if people drive by, but aren’t interested enough to walk through the front door, you’ll never sell your house.”
But don’t let that impact stop at the front door. By removing personal items and reducing clutter inside, you give buyers more freedom to picture themselves in the home. Additionally, a new coat of paint or cleaning the floors can go a long way to freshening up a room.
Setting the right price is extremely important when you’re selling your house. Even though it might feel tempting to push the price higher to maximize your profit, overpricing can scare away buyers and make it hard to sell quickly. Business Insider notes:
“. . . the biggest mistake sellers make is overpricing their home.”
If your house is priced higher than others like it, it could make buyers lose interest. Pay attention to the feedback people give your agent during open houses and showings. If lots of people are saying the same thing, it might be a good idea to think about lowering the price.
Experiencing disappointment when your listing expires without a sale is completely understandable. The next step is crucial: reach out to a trusted real estate agent. We can help you analyze what went wrong and guide you on the necessary adjustments to relist your home successfully. With our expertise, you'll gain invaluable insights and effective strategies to ensure your house finds its new owner.
