Having a property on the market for a long period of time can be frustrating; you question your current agent and the actions that have taken on your behalf.
In a marketplace that has multiple listings, all with similar features and benefits; the homes that will garner the most attention (and offers) are the ones that give the best value. The position your property competitively in the market, your agent should have priced the house accordingly.
For example, if there are two TVs, both are identical, one is priced at $100 and the other is $300, which would you choose?
If your home is price competitively, then it needs to â€œshowâ€ well. If you currently live in the home ways to make it appeal to potential buyers; de-clutter and clean up, give the home personality without making it personal.
The reason you want to make your home "anonymous" is because you want buyers to view it as their potential home. When a potential homebuyer sees your family photos hanging on the wall, it puts your own brand on the home and momentarily shatters their illusions about living in the house themselves.
Put away family photos, sports trophies, collectible items, knick-knacks, and souvenirs. Put them in a box. Rent a storage area for a few months and put the box in the storage unit.
Price it right and show it well, that will get the home sold.
