Your home for sale needs a real estate buyer.
Just one buyer they say is all it takes. But why is the property listing lingering on the market? It does not wear ten foot pole marks. You think it is the best house for sale on the planet bar none. You the seller are kinda perplexed at the delay in the real estate sale.
Here are a dozen reasons your home for sale is not headed to a slide the keys, pass the check property closing.
#1 - First, foremost, the price for the home for sale is not in line with others in the local market. There have been recent real estate sale of places pretty darn similiar to your home for less money. There is a healthy supply of homes just like it that are priced lower than your listed price.
#2 - Marketing of the home for sale is missing or barely has a pulse. It is like winking at a girl in the dark. The results are poor when only the neighbor on each side of your home, the one living across the street know your house is for sale.
The marketing has to be way way stronger than just attracting a local buyer too. Bigger marketing pool, means more fish swimming in it to find your buyer quick and easy. The one buyer who is ready, willing and able to buy today. If they like it, if it fits their housing needs. Your real estate agent has to have fire in their belly passion to push the property, to market it's features to the hilt. Full throttle, hang on we're headed to a real estate closing attitude causes home sales.
#3 - The longer an over priced home for sale hangs around the real estate market, shelf life, or property listing mold begins to develop. Why isn't it selling, there must be something wrong the folks out in the online Internet audience wonder.
Often the only out of whack feature of the property is the too high a price tag it wears. I have had a home seller says the reason his house did not sell was because it was too low a price with his last two real estate agents. Believing that low real estate prices scare away home buyers. I have never ever seen a lower than the market value price for a home that has to sell fast keep people away. The marketing makes sure they know about this blue light special shoppers. But when the home for sale marketing is missing, the phone does not ring, the email server does not glow red hot from activity.
