Selling the Unsellable: Tips to Selling a House That Won’t Sell

Cutting the price

If your home isn’t selling, it may be time to do some of these things including cutting the price

The average home in Maryland could be on the market for up to 53 days. While this may seem like a long time, it could take even longer for above or below average homes to sell. So if your home has been on the market for longer than expected, it is important not to get discouraged. There are some tips and tricks you can do to help your unsellable home sell. Let’s take a look at some of them!

Lower the Price

This can be a sore spot for some sellers who thing they put too much work into their homes to have it sell any lower, but your upgrades may not be what the buyers are looking for in a home. While we try to set your home at a good starting point, your price may need to be lower than originally estimated. Your lower price should be at least 2 percent below the original asking price in order to get a buyer’s attention.

Don’t Underestimate Deep Cleaning

While you should have deep cleaned your home before putting it on the market, perhaps you were not as thorough at you needed to be because of your excitement. Take some time to clean your home inside and out. Clean up the interior by painting your walls and maybe updating your carpet. Fix up the outside by planting new flowers in your garden and cleaning your siding. It could also be beneficial for you to remove your pets from the home for a short time. These small changes could make your home feel brighter and new.

Fixing It Up

Do you have one or two big problems in your home or a bunch of little problems? Fixing all of your home’s problems may be a way to get your house sold. Take the time to go through some comments from buyers or take some time to think like a buyer and fix the things you notice.

A Photo Could Get Your Home Sold or Bypassed

Today, buyers tend to shop online first before visiting your home. If your house doesn’t look nice in photos or if there just aren’t enough pictures online, it could mean buyers bypass your home altogether. To get your house online, talk to your Simply Referable real estate agent about a professional photographer taking pictures of your home for the website. This will help attract buyers and get the word out that you are selling.

Selling your home can be a long process but with the right tips and tricks from an industry professional, you will be able to sell your home in no time! For more information on selling your unsellable home, call Simply Referable today!
