Why Homes Don't Sell


You might have noticed that some homes in Athens seem to sell the second that they hit the market and others can take weeks or months to sell.

A lot of this has to do with the real estate agent, and some of it has to do with the communication between the seller and the agent. Last year my team managed to sell 70% of our listings in less than two months, and 80% in less than three months.

With this being said, here are a few reasons why homes don't sell:
  1. If a home does not show well, it will not sell well. You need to make sure that your home in Athens is in tip-top condition and that it is not in a state of disrepair. If your home is dirty or simply not in good condition, it will still sell, but not for top dollar.
    • Be sure not to forget about landscaping either. The exterior of your home is what draws buyers inside.
  2. The price of your home is another crucial factor. You need to have a competitive and attractive price for your home to draw buyers to your property. You should consult an experienced real estate agent that can gauge an accurate price for your home that reflects it's true value and is also consistent with market conditions.
  3. If your home isn't marketed aggressively to a large amount of prospective buyers, then it will not sell well. You need a qualified agent with various systems in place to get your home seen by as many people as possible. Another aspect of marketing is hiring a professional photographer to capture great photos of your home. Staging is also important, but if your home looks great online, then buyers will likely come asking for more.
These are a few reasons why your home in Athens may not be selling. Every case is different, but I have found that these are common factors for homes not selling.
