If your home has recently been taken off the market and you’re feeling disheartened, don’t lose hope. There’s a possibility that your home was one of the more desirable properties for sale, and the reason it didn’t sell may not have anything to do with your home or the market. Before you relist your home, take a step back and assess the situation to achieve better results.
Q. Where should you begin?
Answer: Start by making a commitment to do what it takes to market your house to get it sold.
With the right system, the home sale you want is still well within reach.
Q. Why didn’t your home sell?
Answer: Review your previous selling plan and you’ll discover that an expired listing usually reflects a problem in one or more of these four major areas:
- Condition of Your Home, and
4 Important Points That Will Get Your House Sold!
Selling your home is a big financial investment, and it’s essential to establish a close partnership with your Realtor®. Your needs and wishes should be at the forefront, giving you confidence in the progress of your sale. Your real estate agent must source detailed and dependable feedback from the agents who have viewed your home. They are also responsible for communicating this feedback to you, enabling you to make well-informed decisions about your next steps. How well did your last experience with a Realtor® go?
Choosing a price for your home sale is a delicate balancing act. It’s important to consider market conditions, competition, and the state of your property. Pricing it too high or low can both have negative effects. If your home isn’t comparable to others in the same price range, prospective buyers and agents may not take you seriously.
When it comes to putting your home on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start. To help determine a realistic selling price, your agent can provide you with an up-to-date competitive market analysis. This analysis can include:
- A review of comparable homes that have recently sold or are currently for sale
- An estimation of the average length of time homes have been listed in today’s market
- A review of homes whose listings have expired, to identify any potential issues that may have impacted the sale
Condition of Your Home
When potential buyers step into your home, are they impressed? Do they feel inspired? Keep in mind that purchasing a home is an emotional decision, not a logical one. Here are some tips to help ensure that your home makes a positive impact on potential buyers:
- Fix any small issues, such as squeaking doors or cracks in the walls, to make the home appear move-in ready
- Keep the house clean and uncluttered for showings
- Brighten up the space
- Consider the curb appeal of the home, as the exterior is the first thing potential buyers see
In addition, it may be worth taking care of major items, such as having the house painted. While offering an allowance to the buyer for painting may seem like a good idea, it’s not the same as having the work done before the sale. Potential buyers may discount the price even further due to the appearance of less-than-perfect walls.
Remember, a house that presents well is more likely to sell for the best price because it outshines the competition.
Condition of Your Home
The first step in your marketing plan is finding an agent that will represent you effectively. To do so, compare the knowledge and approach of various agents, asking each to demonstrate how they will market your home to buyers. It’s important to compare the amount of money each agent spends on advertising, the media they use (newspaper, magazine, etc.), and the effectiveness of one medium over another. Remember, it’s not just the amount they spend, but how they spend it.
Avoid real estate agents using outdated, traditional methods to sell your home because they may not work in today’s market. To be competitive, it’s essential to work with agents who use new and innovative, non-traditional marketing approaches to sell homes quickly and for top dollar.
Selling your home can be a daunting task, but with the right agent and marketing plan, you can achieve the best results. Collaborate with your agent to create a marketing strategy that will introduce your property to a broad range of potential buyers. Keep in mind that not all agents are created equal. So the relationship between you and your agent is critical to the success of selling your home quickly and efficiently.
