Not Receiving Any Offers? It’s been six months and your house is still on the market. For the life of you, you cannot figure out why. You have worked hard on the curb appeal, the interior is staged by a professional and the house is in a safe and secure neighborhood. Yet, no serious offers! The ones you have received so far didn’t agree to your asking price and didn’t show any serious interest.
Now, here you are, seeing the market rise and fall but people don’t seem to be interested in your house.
No need to panic because we know exactly what you are doing wrong! We applaud you for your efforts because you seem to have gotten half the job right. The other half… well, we are here to tell you about that.
Your first order of business should be to hire a Dr. Phillips realtor. With a real estate agent by your side, chances of your house being sold quickly increase dramatically. With that being said, let’s take a look at other factors behind the lack of offers:
The first thing buyers do before touring a house is to browse its photos online. If the photos are not clear and the house looks cluttered in them then a buyer will not even call you to schedule a tour.
So, de-clutter and clean the house, and then hire a professional photographer to take high-resolution photos of the house. If you have the budget, then create a 3D video that shows the house in a 360° view.
Word about the house being sold on so and so street spreads like wildfire. Nearby neighbors will approach you first with lowball offers. Since they have known you for a long time, they will believe that you will accept their offer. Arguing with them on the asking price is all well and good but not giving in an inch is what will land you in hot waters.
When people will get to know how inflexible you are with the terms, most buyers will back off. Negotiation is an important part of the house selling process but when it turns to haggle, buyers get annoyed and don’t come back with a counteroffer.
So, evaluate your house and see where you can cut back on the cost. If you can offer any incentives to sweeten the deal then let the buyer know in the first meeting.
Now that you are working with a real estate agent, you have got a professional on your side who can help you market your house. The more exposure your house will have, the more offers you will receive. With years of experience under their belt, real estate agents know all the tactics to make your house more appealing to buyers.
And now you know why you haven’t been approached by serious buyers. Just make sure that your Orlando real estate is in tip-top condition and leave the rest to your realtor. To get in touch with a professional Clermont Florida realtor, visit the website Megan Dowdy Realty or call on 407-509-9279.
