What are my choices if my Home is NOT Selling?

By
Real Estate Agent with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

HOW can some homes sell while other seem to stay on the market for ever? This is one of the most asked questions by home owners who have listed their homes for sale, but they have not sold. Here in the Manchester NH area over all there is a shortage of homes for sale. Many of our new listings sell within a couple of weeks and some within days. You do not have to look far though to those homes that have sat on the market the last 3 or even 6 months.

 

In my 30 years of selling Real Estate, THE TOP 2 REASONS HOMES DO NOT SELL ARE are they over priced or a lack of marketing from the agent they listed their home with. 

 

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT MY HOME IS WORTH? The first thing that should be done, is the home should go through a new market analysis to determine what the home is worth in this market. A good listing agent will scour the market for homes in your area that are within 20% in size, within 20 years in age, have a similar style and condition and have sold within the last 3 then out to the last 6 months. They will add or deduct for differences coming up with a value.

 

HOW IS MY HOME SUPPOSE TO BE MARKETED? Marketing a home is an art. The sad part of real estate today is some think placing a sign in your yard, put your listing in MLS and a wing and a prayer the home will sell itself. That just is NOT so. A GOOD listing agent will start by reviewing your price. review the home condition, learn what makes your home special and then draw up a marketing plan that suits your home. Marketing is not just about placing ads, but reaching out to the most potential buyers that are looking to purchase a property like yours. Many types of marketing should be done at the same time. Also important is speaking to the seller so you understand how the listing and selling process works. What you can do to assist in making your home show the best. 

 

In order to know what the Right way to sell a home is, all you have to do to is ask someone whose home is not selling, and they can tell you what the wrong way was.

 

In Real Estate,  YOU deserve the BEST service when buying or selling a home. Real Estate is not time for trial and error or short cuts.  LEARN THIS ONE FACT: One should know that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest Agent or Company. It is important to Hire the BEST Agent. In NH that could be me.

Scott Godzyk There is no question that list price and agnet marketing do have a primary effect on the success of a sale. Since we have a seasonal effect in Sarasota, this too, must be considered. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Our seasonal affect is most often a slow down in winter Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386 , however the weather has a huge affect, warm winters equal a very busy time for buying and selling despite the season.

Price can cure condition Sally K. & David L. Hanson but over priced stops a sale faster than every thing
