Selling your home takes a lot of preparation and dedication. And yes, real estate agents are here to make it an easier and faster process for you. However, sometimes homes still have a hard time selling even in a seller’s market. Today we are sharing with you 5 reasons homes don’t sell.
We live in a digital world where everything revolves around visuals. If your listing photos are unappealing, unfortunately, so will the home itself. When people come across your home online, that marks the very first impression. A great perk of working with The Sharma Group is that we take care of the professional photography so it looks clean, beautiful, and inviting. You want potential buyers to look at your listing online and think “this is the one!” before they even step foot through the door.
Lack of Curb Appeal
Good curb appeal doesn’t mean a fancy landscaping project, but the overall product must look nice and welcoming. This is the very first thing home buyers look at, so it is crucial for it to be visually appealing. Here are some simple ways to increase your curb appeal before you list your home on the real estate market.
- A green lawn
- Power wash
- Make your door pop
- Trim your trees
- Add some flower pots
These are a few budget-friendly ways to amplify your curb appeal and the overall appearance of your home to sell.
Not Properly Prepared
Another one of the reasons homes don’t sell is because the home is not quite the final product you want to show a buyer. Sometimes there are a few projects to touch up on that homeowners overlook. This doesn’t mean a full home renovation, but some finishing touches to consider. Proper home preparation can increase the number of offers your home gets. These include:
- Removing clutter
- A new paint coat
- Good lighting
- Keeping decor simple
- Deep clean all flooring
One of the reasons homes don’t sell is because of the presentation. This doesn’t always mean for open houses, but for every show. The way you present your home is the way the right buyers perceive your home. And if you want your home to sell, you have to make sure you are taking the extra steps some comparable homes might not be. How can you position your home for success?
- Open all curtains and blinds
- Make sure it’s smelling fresh
- Put away personal photos
- Complimentary drinks/snacks
- Stage with fresh flowers
