Why Isn’t My House Getting any Showings?

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Showcase REALTORs 01468388

Here's a great article by agent Beth Atalay     This week I talked to some clients who want to sell their home.    They asked me why another house hadn't sold, and when I showed them the presentation on the MLS itI was clear.     Same price, same dark photos, same agent, all of which didn't work last year...

Why Isn’t My House Getting any Showings?

As a home seller, you hope to get your house listed and receive an offer, then a contract within days thereafter.
Does that happen often? You bet it does! However, real estate is local and every market is different. We can’t possibly compare Clermont FL real estate market to Los Angeles area. Good news is if your house is receiving showings, the price is most likely right but there may be other reasons why you haven’t received any offers.

-NO Showings- As a homeowner/seller, you should be in the loop as to how your agent communicates with other agents. Do they return calls and text messages? Are they easy to get a hold of? Just today, while selecting some homes to show my buyer clients, I read this remark in MLS “do not call the listing agent”. Why not? Isn’t their job to get your house sold? Ask for the Broker Synopsis of the MLS sheet to see the public and Realtor only remarks.
As a seller, do not restrict showing times/days. Buyers are out looking at homes seven days a week, morning, noon and after five pm. Be flexible and have your house ready to show!

-Photos- It’s a fact that most buyers begin their search online and the first thing they see are the photos of your house. Buyers are interested in seeing the house, not your personal belongings. It’s not a good impression when the reflection of the person taking the photos are visible in the mirrors, TV on, toilet seat up, toys scattered all over the house. It sends a message that the house is not well kept. Have your agent hire a professional photographer!

-Overpriced Listing- Did you hire your agent based on their suggested list price? Did your agent go with the price you wanted rather than fair market value? If you answered “YES” to these questions, your home might be overpriced. Remember, buyers are savvy and they know how much your house is worth before they ever step into the house. You have two choices, wait until the market catches up to your price or reduce it now. The choice is yours!

These are some of the common reasons why your house may not be showing.

If you are a homeowner in Clermont and surrounding areas thinking about selling, I would love the opportunity to interview for the job of marketing and selling your house. Call or text me at 407-929-1852, email bethatalay@gmail.com or visit www.WhereToLiveInOrlando.com
