How to Sell a House that didnt Sell-expired

Tags: sell a house, tips on selling a home

If your home has just come off the market and hasn’t sold, don’t be discouraged. The reason it didn’t sell may have nothing to do with your home.. or the market. In reality, your home may have been one of the more desirable properties for sale. If your listing has expired and you still want results, before you put your home back on the market, take a step back and review your situation.   

Your home is a major financial investment, and your relationship with your Realtor should be a full partnership where Your needs and wishes should be heard, and you receive detailed and dependable feedback from the agents who have shown your home, and to communicate this to you so together you can make the right decisions about what to do next. How well did this occur the last time you had your home up for sale?

When interviewing agents, test and compare their knowledge and ask each to demonstrate how they will market your home to buyers. Compare, too, how much money each spends on advertising the homes, in what media and the effectiveness of one medium over the other. Remember, it’s not just how much they spend, but how they spend it.

Pricing is Important-To help YOU to establish a realistic selling price for your home, ask your agent to provide you with an up-to-date Market Analysis of Comparable Homes recently SOLD and Homes currently FOR SALE. An idea of how long the Homes have been listed, in order to calculate an average selling time and a review of the Homes whose listings have expired, to understand what issues were at Play. This information will help you establish the right price with the right Realtor.

Dont forget -Make your house easy to show. Consider installing a lock box. Allow Showing times that are Convenient to Buyers.

To get the best results you need to team up with your agent to develop a powerful marketing plan that exposes your property to the widest possible pool of prospective buyers. And Remember….

Not all agents are the same. The relationship between you and your agent can make the difference between selling your home fast, or not selling it all.
