Home Won’t Sell? What are you doing wrong?

Selling your home isn’t an easy process and there’s nothing worse than watching your home sit on the market month after month.

The first thing to consider is…maybe it’s all in your head! It is possible that you are worrying for nothing? Sure we all do it from time to time! Thats where a realtor can come in handy, letting you know when to worry and when not to…and don’t believe HGTV when they say that properties that have been on the market for 60 days are due for a price change, it’s possible that in this market and in this town it’s totally normal.

1. Your listing pictures are subpar: It’s the digital age and good cameras are not as expensive as they used to be and many realtors in the flathead valley actually prefer to use a professional photographer for their properties.

2. Your home isn’t looking it’s best: Don’t be too ‘Property Proud’ to accept that your property may need a little love, put yourself in the buyers shoes!

3. Your home may be too customized: You may love your bright colored exteriors and the dark bedroom colors but buyers may not.  While you don’t have to paint all the walls white and take all personality out of your home, you may consider some more neutral colors and accents.

4. Price: You could have it priced a tad bit high, but keep in mind that the market sets the value of the home…not the realtor…not the seller!

But there could be a lot of reasons that your home isn’t selling, talk to one of our Locations Montana Bigfork Real Estate Agents and find more ideas about how to get your home sold faster and for a better price.
