As an experienced REALTOR® in San Antonio, I hear this a lot from home owners. And, many sellers struggle with this if there home has been on the market for just one week! With the crazy seller’s market we are in, the sellers have expectations that their house will sell the first day. If that doesn’t happen, the wheels start turning in the seller’s mind and this thought begins to run through their head. Often times, the first thing that comes their mind is that it is their agent’s fault. I specialize in homes for sale in Alamo Heights, and can tell you …. there is no easy answer.
The hard truth is, oftentimes, it isn’t directly the agent’s fault. Most of the time it is due to the small decisions that the homeowners make when the put their house on the market, or the location of the home. The agent does bear some responsibility if they haven’t shared with you the things you will need to do to sell your house quickly.
Also, do you want to sell your house quickly…. or, do you want your price? These scenarios would have your agent marketing the property differently. Most sellers want to sell quickly for the highest price possible.
If your house isn’t selling, hasn’t had many showings, hasn’t received an offer, then rethink your position and be positive about the possibilities. It is in your best interest to think through some of the potential reasons that it might not be selling. Part of the resolution of a problem is recognizing that there might be a problem. There might actually be many reasons why your home has not sold.
Here are some of the top reasons that homes don’t sell and a solution for each on how to remedy the situation. Of course, all things being equal must be taken into account.
