Why Is My House Not Selling?

When it comes to selling, the main goal is to get as much for their house as possible.

It costs money to keep your house on the market. Therefore, if your listing is starting to age, you have to know why it isn’t selling. The longer you let that listing sit, the harder it will be to sell.

It takes approximately 3-4 months to sell a house. If your listing is approaching this period or already pass, you need to consider if the following is the reason your house isn’t selling.

Needs improvements

One of the most common reasons a house isn’t selling is that it isn’t comparing well to others in the same price range. You might need to renovate.

It’s important to know which aspects of your home need the most attention. Consider which home-improvement projects carry the best ROIs.

10 popular options:

  1. Garage door replacement
  2. Entry door replacement
  3. Deck addition
  4. Minor kitchen remodel
  5. Siding replacement
  6. Window replacement
  7. Bath remodel
  8. Roof replacement
  9. Bathroom Addition
  10. Backyard patio

Your price is expensive

Your house may not compare well to other options in the same price range as those houses have more rooms, square footage, are in a desirable neighborhood, etc.

The longer your house stays on the market, the more likely you’ll have to drop your asking price. Buyers will simply assume that its status on the market is a sign that something is wrong with the house.

Listing isn't doing justice

Your digital listing might be falling short. Your listing isn’t encouraging much interest in potential buyers.

Review the images and upload quality images if necessary. No matter how great the rest of your listing is, if the images don’t get buyers excited, then you need them professionally redone. Videos automatically make your listing stand out. They’re a great way to capture more aspects of your home. Viewers will get the feel of walking from one room to the next as if they’re there in person.

Listing description

Many sellers simply only include a breakdown of the basics: square footage, number of rooms and number of bathrooms. It’s important to include other aspects that would draw a potential buyer, including neighborhood amenities or nearby access to highways, local restaurants or shopping.
