Price and Presentation. If your realtor has the home priced right, and it hasn't sold, you should look into having your home professionally staged, you have a greater chance of selling your home quicker and for a better price. In fact hiring a professional Stager actually pays for itself.
A stager comes in evaluates your home looking at color, textures, proportion and scale of furniture, decorations, clutter etc. that if rearranged or moved from the home would help appeal to more buyers.
Most sellers tend to take it personally when told what "NEEDS" to be done. You can't do that. When you put your home on the market, it's not your home anymore. It's a business transaction. And, you want it to appeal to the majority. They need to see the house. And most times I've been in homes that were having problems selling, or had to keep lowering their price, had so much furniture, personal pictures, decorations etc. that it actually made the home look smaller and made it difficult for a potential buyer to see past 'all the stuff."
