4 Common Issues Why Your Cabin Is Still on the Market


It can be frustrating to have a home that will not sell. However, if you understand the common mistakes that homeowners make when trying to sell, then it will be easier for you to get your home off the market. There are several issues that can cause your home not to sell.

You Have Not Made Any Upgrades

Many homeowners do not want to spend the money to upgrade flooring, appliances and countertops. They think that spending money on those things is a waste because they will be moving out. However, if you don’t make those upgrades, then your home may sit on the market longer. The purpose of making upgrades is to help your home stand out from the other ones on the market.

There Is Too Much Clutter

When people look for a home, they want to be able to envision themselves living in it. That is why if there is too much clutter, then you may have a harder time selling your home. It is a good idea to remove your personal belongings and photos from the home. If you have a garage, then it is also a good idea to remove personal items from it.

Your Home Needs Pest Control

Most people won’t buy a home if they see pest problems and termites. If you have a pest problem, then it is a good idea to call an expert like Bob Gunn termite solutions before you try to sell your home. Even if you don’t see any pests, you should still call a pest control company. There may be pests lurking in places that you cannot see.

Your Photos Are Subpar

You only have one chance to make a first impression. Most people today look at photos online before they decide to look at a home. That is why if your photos are subpar, then your home will probably sit on the market for a long time.

You don’t want to take pictures with your phone. You should have professional real estate photos taken. Studies have shown that professional real estate photos get more views. The homes also sell faster.

If your home is not selling, then you probably need to make some changes. You will need to upgrade your home and get rid of the clutter. You should also get your pest problem treated. Additionally, you will need to have some professional real estate photos taken.
