If youíre selling your home it can be frustrating when you arenít receiving any offers. Perhaps youíve heard that itís a sellerís market and that the offers on your house would be flying in. However, itís more complicated than that.

Whether or not your house receives offers is determined by a number of reasons--some that in your control, others that arenít. But, that doesnít mean you have to give up and sell your house at a low price.

In this article, weíll discuss what to do if your house just isnít selling. Weíll talk about some reasons why people may be hesitant to bid, to inquire about a showing, and to seal the deal and purchase your home.

Revisit the comparable properties

If your home has been on the market for a while, itís a good idea to check out the other recent homes in your neighborhood to see how their prices compare to the listing price of your home. Since the market fluctuates, other sellers could be adjusting the cost to reflect the current rates, leaving yours higher than it should be.

When pricing your home, make sure you are comparing your house to those that have actually sold. Using houses that have been on the market for a while as a baseline might mean youíve priced your home too high to sell just like theirs.

Also, make sure you are using houses that share many of the common features that yours does. This can include:

  • Square footage

  • The year the house was built

  • Number of bedrooms and baths

  • The lot size

  • The condition of the home

Remember, it isnít all just about location.

Getting more leads

If people arenít making inquiries about your home, there are a few things you should check up on. First, make sure your listings are updated and accurate. The contact info should be easy to find, and you or your real estate agent should provide multiple means of contact (email, cell phone, text, etc.).

Next, ensure that youíve given enough details about the house. If people are searching for a specific number of rooms but your listing doesnít mention the number of rooms you have, you might be missing out on several inquiries.

Finally, make sure your photos are high resolution and well-lit. You want to make sure visitors to your listing can get a clear idea of what your home looks like. If your photos are small, dark, blurry, or if they make the house look cramped and cluttered, you should retake your photos or consider hiring a photographer.

Getting more offers

If youíve had plenty of inquiries and showings but you arenít getting any offers there may be a deeper, underlying issue that needs to be addressed. Usually, this means your home needs important repairs and upgrades that buyers simply donít want to make.

If your house is priced to be move-in ready but itís not, youíll have to make some upgrades or lower the price.

Not working with an agent

Sellers can also have a difficult time getting offers if they attempt to sell the home themselves without using a real estate agent. If your home is FSBO (For Sale by Owner), youíre missing out on a number of listing services and connections that an agent can provide.
