Presentation: Most buyers know if they'll be interested in a home within the first five to ten seconds of walking through the door, so making a great first impression is critical. Ask your agent what buyers are looking for, and and have him help you stage your property to make it as appealing to prospective buyers as possible.
Price: Pricing a home correctly is part science and part art. It's also a crucial component of your sales strategy, since your home won't attract buyers if it's priced too high. Have your agent provide you with an expert assessment of your home's market value, but of course the pricing decision is ultimately yours to make.
Promotion: Your agent will need to craft a cutting-edge marketing plan designed specifically for your home. Premier placement on real estate web sites, online and print advertising, toll-free numbers and text messages, email campaigns, direct mail, brochures, flyers, postcards, open houses, and virtual tours are just a few of the strategies that can be utilized to promote your property.
There could be many reasons why it didnt sell but marketing, price, location and condition are the usual reasons. You need to have up to date information as to the current market activity in your area. I will be glad to speak to you further if you like. If you are still working with the agent you had, you need to have a face to face meeting to discuss your next moves.
If you would like any additional assistance, I would be glad to talk to you!
A professional and competent agent will be able to tell you within minutes why your home is just sitting on the market for months on end. If you have not received a credible answer from your agent in 9 months, it is absolutely time to re-think your situation and possibly your agent as well. Good luck to you?
