Tips For Selling a House That Will Not Sell

Real Estate Blog

When you listed your home for sale months ago, you probably assumed that someone would purchase it. If no one has, you might not know what to do about it. How do you sell a house that will not sell? If this is the situation you are in, you can do a few things. Here are some tips to help you know what to do in this situation.

Evaluate Your Home Listing

The first thing you might want to do is evaluate your current home listing and attempt to sell your house. When you hired an agent, did you choose the right one? When the agent offered suggestions to you about your home, did you follow these? For example, if the agent recommended an asking price, did you stick with a price near that amount? If you asked a lot more for the house than the agent recommended, this might be the reason you could not sell your house. If the agent recommended making repairs, but you chose not to, this could be the problem. As you reflect on these things, you might find where the problem lies.

Make Some Changes

The next tip to consider is to make some changes. You can hire a different agent if you want, but this is generally not the problem. You can lower the asking price of your home, as this is often the issue. Making some improvements in your home might also help. If you can improve the home's appeal, looks, and condition, you might find a buyer for it. It is often beneficial to take a house off the market for a few months to have time to make the necessary repairs. After waiting a few months, you can relist it to see what happens.

Sell It for Cash

If all else fails, there are always alternative options to consider. The simplest method for selling a house quickly is through a cash sale. A cash sale involves a real estate investor purchasing your home. With this option, you do not pay a commission to a real estate agent. You sell the house directly to the investor for cash. The positive part of this option is that it offers an instant sale. The negative part is that you might get a lower amount than you were asking.

Sarah's Renting Tips

Although I've never worked professionally in the real estate business, I sure know my way around it. How, do you ask? Well, I have simply rented a lot of different places and worked with a lot of different landlords and real estate agents. In the past 7 years I've lived in 11 different houses or apartments, none of them my own. In finding those 11, I have looked at literally hundreds of apartments. I used to hate house hunting, but now it's kind of fun. You just need to know what you want and the right questions to ask. Hopefully this blog can help you learn some of the tricks of the trade from another renter like yourself.
