Why Isn’t My House Selling?

Home Selling Tips 

 [original post Why isn’t My House Selling? ]


I received the following eMail after a video I posted on my page for “Home Not Selling Forum” 

This relates to Home Absorption Rates and how to use it and help you sell a home.. .

“Hi Fernando, just listen to your Youtube video…have ???
well as you said try to be in 1st position to sell your home quicker..
we feel that we are but what happens when buyer to comparing to other town that are
a little cheaper and get more home for the money….
as for my home in my town we look in great position 1st or 2nd..
had so many viewing but no offers in 3 months now…. its hard to lower any further unless its by owner
then we can lower it by 20k that commission eats into the small profit we get back..
what do you think,,
we live in Fort Lauderdale area in a very nice section….
Thanks R&B”


I decided to post my answer as to provide help  in case you have a

house that will not sell as well

My Response: 



Hi R & B thank you for watching my video. 
Just understand that the Absorption Rate of any house is for a particular market only. .at any given time
When buyers are first looking for homes, 
They are considering many areas at first.. (no absorption rates yet)
Then they decide particular areas because of school …conveniences..walkability …status……(no absorption rates yet) 
It is when they are committed to a neighborhood or small area where your agent must ask this question when your house is located inside…
  • How many houses have sold in the last 6 months? 
  • How many houses will sell in the next 30 days
  • What is the position of your house vs the competition?
If I was your agent, I would come to pick you up and make appointments with the competition…and I would ask you to pretend you are buyers
This is how you can help yourself and let your agent do the work…
Ok, you had enough
drop your agent
and save on the commission …..to transfer those funds to the asking price?
Big mistake!
Buyers are savvy ..and if your house is in the “expensive” side…all the buyers are intelligent….this is why they are buying expensive homes in first place!
The first thing they ask…
  • What is the history of the house? 
  • How long has been in the market? 
  • Why are the sellers …selling it?
Assuming that these buyers have their own agent…very likely because most “serious prepared buyers” have already crossed path with dozens of agent while preparing to buy…
They will be represented by one of them ..I can assure you of that
Their agent will be answering those questions…
“They been trying to sell this house for a long time…for this amount and this amount…now they are asking this amount, they are desperate, let’s offer them $$$$  and see what they say…they should be grateful we at least bringing them an offer.
The odds of you selling your house at top price and saving in commissions  is almost zero in this case.. .
You’ve inspired me doing another video
I researched and analyzed why these houses are not selling..
They are all active and they been in the market for OVER 365 DAYS!!!
This is what I found:
Thank you and good luck!

Understand that the LISTING PRICE and the SELLING PRICE are two different things.

Although there are many other aspects and conditions that affect the sale of a home. The price is the pivot that directs it to the SOLD group or to the STALE group.

If your house is not selling, you need to discuss and analyze with your agent the position of your house among  the competition. . 

How does your home stack up?

The video below will open up several options for you and my hope is that your will quickly recognize the mistakes that will enlighten you into taking the proper direct steps and getting your house sold.



Pricing is critical in this market and so is condition.

You have to match the two in a very balanced way…

I invite you to visit out HOME NOT SELLING FORUM to find the answers you may be looking for.. .

and if your house sale has currently expired, don’t make these 5 MISTAKES . .

Writing a Book For Marketing Your Real Estate Business

Author: Fernando Herboso / Category: Clarksburghomesforsale

Homes For Sale

What is the best marketing tool you can have for your own business? 

I know that the best way for any customer to trust you quickly is when they are absolutely sure you are an expert of what you do…

A book can accomplish this for you.

I have been thinking about this for many years already and I decided to go ahead and go for it!

I had a choice to make.

Here I was contemplating at this Internet company, that after paying a nominal fee, I could just write a couple paragraphs and become an instant author!. . .  

This is a deceiving tactic that a lot of people have considered using it as an authority tool for their business…

So they can claim they have written a “BEST SELLER”, when in reality, it only cost them a couple thousands dollars and a couple hours to write a few paragraphs.

(btw, a best seller is achieved in Amazom by buying your own book in bulk for your customers- and right when you do it. . you can claim you were the “author” of a “BEST SELLER”  in Amazon- not disclosing the fact that you’ve purchased all the books yourself) 

That does not feel right personally.. .

I had to do better than that. . . 

I wanted to write a book with my own content under my own creativity and my own effort.


This is why I’m very excited to share with you this SNEAK PEEK of my new book to be published sometime in 2016

Although, I don’t have the exact official book release date, I can not stop thinking about when this is finally coming to  realty, after many years of planning and talking about it, I have  to give a huge shout out to my son Eric Herboso who urged me to complete this book. He has offered his help in bringing it to reality..

So, my job in the next  few months is to provide all the content using YouTube videos about the specific chapters of my book, as they are being transcribed to text version one video at a time.

Here’s what I hope the reader will take away from reading my new book once it is published:

I’m sharing my experiences of selling homes by providing unique marketing techniques and strategies that will help Real Estate Agents and/or  any homeowner who ventures in selling their home on their own..

These are specific proven marketing techniques that can assure the best chances to sell any home at the best possible price…


the timing to fit the seller’s needs.

For now, I invite you to explore the extensive library of videos already completed that will soon become the chapters on my book… . 

Click on the book cover below to check them out: 

I recommend for anyone who is in business for themselves to explore this type of marketing tool. .

There is no better way to elevate your position with your customers. .than giving them the gift of a book . .creating in a sense a powerful message of authority ..gaining their trust quicker.

Of course is not easy, it takes time and a lot of discipline,

I have a lot more work to do before it becomes reality, 

Luckily, I’m the type that loves challenges…
