TOP 3 REASONS HOMES DO NOT SELL
Firstly, homes that do not sell show poorly when prospective buyers come to see the home. When homes show cluttered or worse, messy, prospective buyers spend less time in the home during viewings.
Secondly, homes that have off smells in the home are sure to encourage a prospective buyer to spend their money elsewhere. Smells from lingering smoke, a dirty litterbox, musty smells from a wet basement are sure ways to keep your home on the market.
We are in year 2012. Over 95% of all homebuyers start searching for a home on the internet. It is critical to have top notch photography of your home on the internet. The internet sells homes 24 hours a day 7 days a week, make sure you have a top notch internet presentation showcasing the positives features of your home.
The flat out fact being homes that do not sell are not priced properly. If a home has not sold at a certain price, for 60 days, then the seller has a choice....they can lower their asking price to reflect the current condition of the home OR improve the home to reflect the current price of the home. All homes that are properly priced will sell. It is upto each seller if they deisre to maximize the value of their home investment by improving a home an eliminating the defiencies prior to selling to attain a higher price.....OR to put the home on the market in as is condition and see what ther market will bear. In real life, most sellers find a happy medium somewhere between these two scenarios.
Sellers can eliminate the stress of selling by STAGING their home prior to putting their home on the market. Staging will showcase your home to the best of its ability and eliminate the nagging issues that will deter most buyers. Staging puts your home at the top of buyers awaremess and gives sellers an advantage over the other homes on the market that are cluttered, messy or smelly.
