Why Won't My House Sell?
In today's market, sellers are constantly second guessing their decisions. It may be the decision of when to list, for how much to list, and even with whom to list their property. It can be a time of indecision and uncertainty but if you are able to figure out how to sell your house in any market, you will feel as though the weight has been lifted off of your shoulders. You can establish a definite plan for your sale and experience success rather than frustration during the sale of your house.

If your house isn't selling as quickly as you would like, consider having an objective party review the home. This person should have no interest in your home other than evaluation. They can provide you with the necessary feedback to change elements in order to have a fast house sale.

There are 5 major areas on which you can focus to ensure the proper marketing of your home. No one can guarantee a sale but you can ensure that the best impression will be made when it comes to people viewing your house.

1. Price:

This seems like an understood principle that if the price is too high, people won't even view it but the same can be true of the price being too low. It has to be in the range that buyers consciously and subconsciously agree with regarding the value when they walk into the house. The price has to be one that will draw the buyers in but also one that will convince them that your house is the one. A price too low and a buyer may wonder if there is a problem with the house so that can be counter-productive. The value has to match the price. If the buyer sees a lot of upgrades and specialty features, this can equate to a better value in their mind, without even having the exact price of these added together; buyers can use their own information to comprehend how much value is in a home.

2. Motivation:

How motivated are you to sell your house? This is a deciding factor in many transactions. If you are not truly motivated, you may not be as willing to work with a buyer or even leave for possible showings. The level of your motivation will directly affect how easy it is to sell your house.

3. Negotiations:

If you are selling your house in order to have a certain amount of money, without any wiggle room, it will probably not happen. Just as in any buying and selling situation, desperation is never attractive. What is the first rule of car shopping? Never seem desperate and this is true as a seller. Buyers can sense when you are unwilling to negotiate or compromise and in this market, they can move on to someone who will. Why would they work with someone who will not budge on price, concessions, timing, or other small issues when they have plenty of sellers who will? Be flexible and never let your desperation show. Even when you are trying to avoid foreclosure, don't let potential buyers know this, if you can help it.

4. Repairs:

By not completing major repairs, you are selling yourself short. Don't take for granted that you live in an excellent school district and you don't have to finish painting or fixing the bathroom because that alone will sell the house. In this market, you can't leave anything to chance as there are other options for buyers out there. They are able to choose from foreclosures in stellar districts that are larger than yours and may even have more square footage. They may need to have some work done to them but if the house is larger with more features and needs work, why would they choose yours that needs work as well.

5. First Impression:

You may be giving off the wrong vibe when people walk into your house. Is it so personal that they are overwhelmed? Do you have religious, political, or other very personal memorabilia around and it turns them off? While you don't want to change who you are, you do have to be objective when selling your house. You don't have to change your beliefs or your values but putting them on display can be a mistake for many sellers. Because these things are so personal, they can be a deterrent to potential buyers and more than likely you just want the buyers to focus on your house.
