Unfortunately, I must say I couldn't follow the hyperlink you included in your request. For some reason it crashed! This is but one of the reasons homes don't sell. Often doing something yourself as compared to what a professional can do leads to a marked difference in the results.
Mr. Ted Kennedy went to a professional brain surgeon to get his brain tumor operated (he was still in surgery at the time of this writing). Similarly, buyers and sellers should visit with a professional when dealing with real estate. However, not all professionals are made equal. There are good, bad, mediocre and excellent in every profession (even in the oldest of professions), and because of this fact, one must use common sense and listen to the advice of their trusted professional once chosen.
Based on some of the remarks, there may be some TLC or neglect that if addressed, would make the home more appealing, starting right at curbside. Curb appeal will get a potential buyer in the door but it will NOT get you an offer if you are overpriced.
Paying a commision does not guarantee a Realtor showing if the home is overpriced either. The money we receive will not buy us the ability to sell an overpriced property to a potential buyer. And for us, No sale = no $. So, you could offer 10% but, if the property is overpriced...it'll sit and your frustrations will grow.
Are you looking for property to move to as you try to sell yours? If not, perhaps you should start and see how your mind shifts when you are the buyer with respect to what you are looking for in your next home and what price you feel you're willing to pay for it.
Similarly, potential buyers are looking at your house with similar critical eyes. Get out of the house and visit every FSBO available in your area and every Open House you can. Compare notes, see what others are offering for their asking price and you will quickly develop a sense of where you are in your offer price.
Based on what you are offering and the lessons you learn, would you buy your house? If not, it's time to consider another strategy.
Today, we are in a Price and Beauty Contest. No question about it. Which is the pretiest house I can buy for the least amount of money I can get away with?
Hot properties in this market sell in days or weeks. The rest, seem to sit for what it seems forever. If you'be been trying to sell for 9 months with few showings or just Realtors looking for a listing or Investors (seasoned or newbies) looking for a bargain, then perhaps you need to consult with a professional.
Also, if your property has been on the market (specially if improperly priced) for 9 months and you've already gone through 2 Realtors, then it's time to gather the lessons learned and find a no-nonsense Realtor who will show you how they will get your house sold if you follow their advise, and if you then follow it, regardless of how painful it may seem. If you are drawing a posture or an imaginary line in the sand as you read this, then you need to reevaluate your motivation to sell.
Remember to also consult with a decorator or staging professional. I'd be happy to offer you contact information on a couple I've used, but a Realtor should be able to give you unbiased, objective feedback...IF YOU ARE WILLING TO LISTEN.
Weather you like what these pros have to say or not....who's the brain surgeon (real estate professional) in the mix? If that is not you, or the person(s) now giving you advice, then perhaps it's time to take notice, get humble and listen to what these pros have to say.
Start by seeing your house not as a home but as a piece of property you want to sell. As most car sellers would do, they clean up the car and shine the wheels before every showing for maximum effect. You must do the same with your house.
It's like buying an expensive pair of shoes at Saks or Bloomingdales then finding the same pair of shoes at Ross or Marshalls. Nothing wrong with the latter, but you'd surely not pay Saks prices for that pair of shoes at Ross.
If your home is not in tip-top shape, this must be reflected in your offer or asking price. Specially if nearby homes compare better at a similar or better price. Comparables must be evaluated for both, sold homes and active, for sale homes (yes...including those pesky short sales and foreclosed/REOs).
Get some statistics. My board (RAMB) publishes some and they can be found at http://miamirealestateking.com/9404/dsp_agent_page.php/48898
Find a Realtor who is a member of a board that is very Realtor intense in the way of providing their members with great benefits such as the ability to publish your home in up to 13 languages so that buyers from whereever they may come can comfortably learn about your home. If you can't do that, then you are competing with those of us
Otherwise, you may contact a Realtor for a confidential and complementary consultation.
