Q & A

What to Do When Your House Doesn’t Sell? 

  • Q: “Should I just lower the price and hope it sells? A: Before reducing the price of your home, there are several questions you must ask yourself. Price is NOT the only reason why a home sells. The condition of the house has a major significance on the overall marketing strategy. Check out the competition with your agent. If 95% of the homes in your market are not selling, then your home needs to outshine to be on the top 5% for a chance to sell.
  • Q: “My house is not selling, should I just put it for rent and try it later? A: Make sure you have decided to rent the house because you want to be an investor, and not because you were unable to sell your house because of your agent’s ineptitude. Make sure you know and have what it takes to be a landlord. 
  • Q:“Should I take it off the market for a little while? A: If you wait to sell your house based on the results you are getting now, is probably a bad decision.The same problems will resurface all over again…later. Solve those problems first, make sure your plans justify the wait and the possibility that you may increase the demand for your house. Remember, as market demand increases, so does your competition.

When Bad Neighbors Hurt Your Home’s Sale

This post was inspired while  speaking to a potential seller who stated .. .
“We are considering selling and getting away from here because of a bad neighbor”
After more than 20 years in real estate, this was not a surprise for me, but I reflected on this particular homeowner. ..
What an awful position to be in. .
You are moving your whole family, selling your home . .just because a neighbor?
As you know, pricing and condition are key factors in selling any  home, but there’s one  factor that could influence a buyer’s decision and trump all others. .
Your neighbors!
When buyers come looking to your home for sale, 
They are not just looking at your home but the whole neighborhood has as well. .
Then how do you sell a home when bad neighbors create a bad impression when selling your home? 
This is the time where homeowners appreciate HOA’s 
If you have an HOA, you may want to enlist and tackle the problem with their help. .remain anonymous if possible
There are also  likely ordinances in place from city ordinances  that require lawns to be reasonably maintained, failure to do so can result in fines, which is usually enough to persuade some homeowner to take better care of the property.
Dealing with bad neighbors can be annoying, but it could cost you money if you are selling your home
A tactful plan of attack using a good listing agent is very important here
Because of a bad neighbor, you should not have to sacrifice the value of your home. 
Watch the video for more tips and focus on successfully selling your home with the right person representing you.

Price,Location ,Condition — NOT Location, Location, Location . .What Sells A Home.

Selling Homes. .. (The Logical Way)

If you know about real estate, you’ve most likely heard the term already
“Location, Location, Location”
This is a little too disingenuous for some people and it distracts them from the actual true 
In reality, location is only one factor.. 
Condition and price are just as important.
The actual order of these three are in my opinion as follows.. .

“Price, Location, Condition”
Location may indirectly affect the price of your home but the price always affects directly the selling of any house.
as condition remain a distant objective that can be solved when time passes and more money is invested.

You may have the best location, a penthouse in the middle of Washington DC overlooking the Washington Monument .. 
The wrong price trumps and stales  this property no matter how superbly is located.
You may have a rowhouse in Baltimore around  bad neighborhoods…and crime all around 
The right price will sell it every time! (no matter the location) 
Price moves houses
Price determines the market 
The buyers  acceptance of price determines the actual value of your home


 If you are seller. .you should write this down

A home inside a bad location will  sell if the price is right 
A home in bad condition will sell if the price is right

A home with the wrong price
 will not sell until its corrected!

PRICE is what sells a house! 

Life goes on and listings sit unsold, 
Many blame their agents .. but the blame should be is mostly on the seller’s side 

There is no hope when you are selling a house for several thousands of dollars. .
Is a major purchase and  buyers will not overlook a seller’s greed when they are obviously 
overpriced…They know you are overpriced and their rejection is very clear

Not your agent
Not your flyer 
Not the marketing. .
Not your sign

it’s the price…as simple as it sounds

Buyers will overlook burgundy tile and flower wallpaper in the bathroom
Buyers will overlook 70’s wood paneling in your basement
Buyers will overlook the water stain on the ceiling under the top floor bathroom. .
But. . I can assure. .
Buyers will not overlook when you overprice your home!
Your home will become stale. .
with  no showings anymore
You see. .

Don’t put blame on the number of open houses. .or the lack of
Don’t put blame on an agent that was just trying to please you.
Is not about home much you need to net. .
How much money you need to  retire to Florida. .

It’s about the price.
nothing else. .
