Why Is My House NOT Selling

As hot as the market is right now in Lake Havasu City, there are only a couple of reasons that a listed home is sitting on the market and not selling. 

1. The home is over-priced 

2. The home needs some updates    

3. There's too much 'you' in the house

4. Showings are hard to schedule

5. The home isn't being advertised properly 

6. The home is in a harder-to-sell location or has a not so desired layout

Really everything in Real Estate comes down to price in the end. If you don't feel like doing some updates or staging your home well, decreasing the price will help make it sell. Most potential home-owners are looking for something move-in ready. Of course for the right price, buyers would think about purchasing the home and doing the updates themselves. But the price would have to be right. Now, it can sound cruel, but you want to sell your house to other people, who can imagine themselves living in your house. Simply put, you are not them. So photos and an over-abundance of decorations can sometimes prevent sellers from imagining themselves there. Also, having a home that can be shown within the hour or at least in the same day makes selling the home much easier to do. And lastly, and this is huge... you need to choose an agent who will take professional photos. One who will market your property using extended marketing search, social media, real estate tours, and open houses.

Just recently I was able to get an expired listing that was sitting on the market for 6 months with no offers. I listed the property for only $5,000 less than it was previously listed for and with a quick marketing video and blasting it on social media we had 2 cash offers on the property and were able to sell the home the same day it was listed and closed 2 weeks later. If you are looking to buy or sell a home I would love the chance to meet with you! I also offer Free Home Valuations and will come to your home to give you an update on the market. Feel free to call me at 928-200-2480! Hope you have a great day!
