Why Didn't My Home Sell?


There are 4 major factors that contribute to the marketability of a home:

  1. Location
  2. Price
  3. Condition
  4. Marketing

You can't do anything about the location, but price and condition are controlled by all sellers. For the For Sale By Owner seller, marketing is also within their domain. So, if your home isn't selling, look to these factors:

Have you prepared your home for sale? (See "Get Top Dollar for your Home")

Have you priced your home competitively with other similar properties on the market? (See "Free Market Analysis.") It has been my experience that buyers will typically want justification for the price a seller is asking for their home. If there is no realtor involved, it is likely that a buyer will discount your price accordingly.

Have you marketed your property sufficiently so that enough buyers know about your home? How have you marketed your property so that it's special features and desirable aspects are emphasized to attract a buyer?
