The reasons why some homes sell and others don’t often have nothing to do with the home or the market. In reality, a home that sits unsold may be one of the more desirable properties for sale, with the lack of buyer activity usually reflecting a problem in one or more of these four major areas:
3. Condition Of Your Home
Marketing: One of the first steps in your marketing plan involves finding an agent who will best represent you. When interviewing agents, test and compare their knowledge and ask each to demonstrate how they will market your home to buyers. In fact, ask them point blank how many buyers they’re working with right now. Compare, too, how much money each spends on advertising the homes s/he lists, in what media (online, newspaper, magazine, etc.) and the effectiveness of one medium over the other. Remember, it’s not just how much they spend, but how they spend it. To be competitive in today’s marketplace, agents who use new and innovative, non-traditional marketing approaches are the ones who are getting more homes sold fast and for top
Pricing: The “right” price depends on market conditions, competition and the condition of your home. Pricing it too high is as dangerous as pricing it too low. If your home doesn’t compare favorably with others in the price range you’ve set, you won’t be taken seriously by prospects or agents.
Condition of Your Home: Is your house someone else’s idea of a dream home? When buyers enter are, they inspired? Do they think, “I love this house!” Remember, the decision to buy a home is based on emotion, not logic.
Teamwork/Accountability: Your home is a major financial investment, and your relationship with your Realtor should be a full partnership where your needs and wishes are heard, and you receive detailed and dependable feedback on the progress of your sale.
- Perhaps most importantly, you need to work with a Realtor who is committed to being accountable to you and who will help make
your home more presentable.

Will Your Home Sell When You Need It To?
While every agent will promise to sell your home, the reality of the real estate market today is that this simply doesn’t always happen.The fact of the matter is, the majority of homes listed for sale sit on the market for months, and many of these homes never sell at all.
Needless to say, this is highly frustrating to a home seller like you. But more than this, it can be financially crushing if you’re counting on the sale of your home to fulfill some other obligation.
Improving the condition of your home can be one of the most important steps toward selling your home for the right price. Studies have shown that repairing some of the most obvious signs of wear and tear on a home can shorten the time it takes to sell.
