Just when you think you've done everything you need to do to get your home ready for the market, months pass and your home doesn't sell. Consider a few factors that can effect
your goal of selling your home.
Priced Too High–If your home has an excessive asking price, it will be harder to sell. With so many [city] homes available today, a big price tag may turn buyers off. And, your competition down the street may have the same
home but a better price. The Market – No longer can you simply put a home on the market and watch the offers roll
in. Nowadays, you have to be diligent and knowledgeable in your approach. Research the market value of similar homes in your neighborhood and know what kind of competition you're up against. And, understand today's buyers
and what they need in order to make a good offer on a home.
Unfavorable Location – No matter how gorgeous a home is a bad location can hurt sales. Although
you can't change the location, you can be creative in figuring out ways to appeal to buyers. Offer incentives to attract buyers or lower your asking price. The Appearance – Does your home need some work? If so, you want to attack those issues
first before putting your home on the market. Things like dirty carpets and broken appliances can turn buyers off. Try staging your home. This will help to ensure your home dazzles potential buyers. You Didn't Consult A Professional - Trying to sell a home yourself can be an extremely daunting
task. That's why you need a real estate professional who knows the ins and outs of the
industry and can market your home in the right way.
The good thing is that you can make changes that will improve the situation. Go over all the points listed and address any problems. Once that's done, you'll have a better chance
of watching your home sell.

13 Weird Real Estate Facts To Entertain Your Brain By Seth Willia
"As a first time home buyer, working with Lynn Galik made the process an easy one. Not only was she patient in replying to my (many) questions, she was extremely prompt as well. Lynn's approach was easy, laid-back and no pressure. When I decided on an area I wanted to buy in, Lynn immediately found listings for us to visit the same day. Within two weeks, I was able to put an offer on a condo that I could afford and that met my extensive list of requirements. Lynn listened to my needs, provided feedback, and I am confident that she had my best interest in mind. She was honest with me on whether a property was over-priced, would be good for resale, and if it was safe. Lynn was incredibly helpful when it came to making an offer and explaining to me all the costs, fees, and procedures included if the sellers were to accept. She removed any fears or doubts I had and even relieved me of some of the closing costs. Lynn was quick to respond to e-mails, texts, and phone calls. She was willing to schedule appointments and showings around my busy work schedule. She gave great recommendations for lenders, home inspectors, and lawyers. So great, in fact, that my parents are refinancing their house (that Lynn sold them 8 years ago!) with the lender that Lynn recommended to me. If it weren't for Lynn's reassuring attitude, I am confident that I would not be sitting here in the comfort of my new home writing this recommendation. Buying a home for the first time is a daunting experience, I would recommend Lynn in a heartbeat to help soften any concerns. This was such an important decision for me, and she was completely empathetic to all of my questions and concerns. She was genuinely excited for me to purchase my first home and I can't thank her enough! Lynn....you are awesome!
