When that “for sale” sign outside your lawn became an ornament, then you know you are having problems with the house. Although there are many potential buyers, they may seem to have small problems with the house that you are not totally aware of.
Try to search for other houses that are for sale in your area. There may be a couple of houses that are up in the market that offer cheaper value than your house. Over priced house and lot doest not catch consumer’s attention. The reason for their transfer always ended up to have lower expenses therefore over pricing is definitely a no-no to them.
The look of your house is also important. Most consumers prefer to have a contemporary house because of the space and elegance that it can give. Other than that, old or as we say “Vintage” style houses are definitely out of date. There may be some consumers who wanted this type of house but they are not your typical consumers that you can see almost every week. Also, check your lawn for over grown weeds. Although this can easily be cleaned when new owners set foot on the house, there are others who does not have a time to have it trimmed down or may even consider to spend their money on hiring someone to clean it for them.
Clutter and smell inside the house are serious problems that you can face. These clutters may create a negative impact to the consumers and may immediately think that the house is too small for such things to accommodate. Damp walls and unclean grouts, toilets and spoiled foods can create pungent odors that cannot be easily removed therefore having it fixed and replaced before putting the house for sale is crucial.
