The Top Reasons Homes Don’t Sell

Why Homes Fail to Sell

If your home has been listed for several months with limited activity or no offers, it's likely that one or more of the following factors are responsible.

Your price is too high

The most common reason for a home not selling is often an excessively high asking price, which can result from over-enthusiastic agents or unrealistic seller expectations. An inflated price can lead to obstacles in the sales process, potentially causing offers to fall through due to financing issues. River Valley Realty is dedicated to determining the right, competitive price for your property using Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to ensure your home achieves its maximum value.

The condition of your home

In a competitive market, your home needs to shine. To increase your chances of a quick sale, focus on two key upgrades: fresh paint and well-maintained flooring. Both can have a significant impact on potential buyers. At River Valley Realty, we're here to help your home stand out in a competitive real estate landscape.

Your marketing is losing momentum.

High-performing listing agents utilize robust marketing plans. If your agent isn't prioritizing online visibility, active networking with local agents, and advertising in key publications, it might be time for a change. Simply putting a sign in your yard and listing on the MLS may not be enough to effectively market your home.
