 Five Real Estate Tips Why Your Home Hasn't Sold Yet:

1. It’s overpriced.

  • There is no single strategy for how to handle this.Nothing leaves a home languishing on the market longer than an asking price that's too high for the current market. .If your place has been on the market for 30 days and not received an offer, you will need to reevaluate your pricing and determine if it’s the asking price that’s dissuading buyers. However, you or your broker should be periodically checking on your competition.  If they adjust their pricing, you should be prepared to as well.  This question should be asked again every few weeks if your property continues to remain on the market.
  • Price point is crucial, and if you don't price it properly, you're pretty much shooting yourself in the foot.
  •   In a buyer's market, price your home a minimum of 2% less than the last comparable sale. If you can't live with that price, then don't put your home on the market and set yourself up for disappointment. Overpricing is the worst mistake a home seller can make.
