Reasons Why Your House Isn’t Selling The Traditional Way In Kingsport TN

Do you have a property that is just sitting on the MLS? It happens quite often, and there are usually similar reasons why it isn’t generating the interest you would like to see. In our latest post, we will help you figure out why your house isn’t selling the traditional way in Kingsport TN and what you can do about it.

Bad Listing

A listing can be bad in several ways. The biggest one we see is bad pictures. People don’t want to see other peoples clutter plain and simple. While you might be able to remove all of your possessions for the photos, at least do a good cleaning! We have seen people use photos with piles of laundry on their beds and dishes in the sink. Make the effort to get your property in the best condition for your listing photos. You see it time and time again… bad photos can ruin a houses chance of being sold.

The listing can also be bad if there is bad if it has a poor write up. It should clearly describe the house without sounding phony or like all the other listings out there. It should capture attention while clearly outlining what to expect with the property. With a direct sale to Awesome Cash Buyers Co., you won’t have to worry about bad listings or even having to market the property. We will buy it as-is, mess and all.

Incorrectly Priced

While most agents will be honest about what your house will sell for, there are others who will inflate the asking price in order to get you to sign a listing agreement. Do the research yourself and get multiple options as to the value of your house. Look at what other homes have sold for, not just ones that are currently listed.  Factor in the repair costs, and be objective in your pricing. When you list too high, the property will sit there, eventually having to be lowered in price. This will push your listing to the bottom and make people wonder if there is something wrong with it because it has been on the market for so long. If it sits on the MLS for any period of time, the amount you are paying taxes, utilities, insurance, and maintenance can add up. By selling your home quickly, you will be able to keep a considerable amount of cash in your pocket.

Needs Work

Most people looking for a house will want it to be turnkey. Moving is hard enough and if they are planning on living in the house right away, the last thing they will want to deal with is a massive renovation or project. One way to get around this is to offer a credit for repairs. This can grab people’s attention as they will have the freedom to customize things as they would like. To avoid making repairs or offering buyers a credit, consider selling your home directly.

A Bad Agent

While there are many excellent agents out there, not all of them are as great as they would like you to think. Some are inexperienced and will give you poor advice. Others will not know how to properly market your property. And others will simply be lazy and not respond to potential buyers in time. Many sellers kick themselves for signing a listing agreement with an agent, then ending up having to do much of the work themselves… still having to pay the agent’s commission. With a direct offer from Awesome Cash Buyers Co., there are no contracts. We make you an offer and you decide if its right for you. There is never any obligation.

Blaine Dartez

Hey there, I’m Blaine, the owner of Awesome Wholesalers! Thanks for checking us out. I love every aspect of real estate, but one major reason I started buying homes is that I saw that sometimes people were getting into tough situations with their home… facing foreclosure, can’t make repairs, getting behind on payments, and more. I’ve seen people struggle with squatters, or go through the process of losing homes up close and personal. Bottom line: I know that sometimes bad things happen to good people. I got into real estate because I wanted to offer a service where I can help homeowners in my community. My passion and goal with this company is to get people out of burdensome properties, or helping another local investor build their portfolio. Besides all that, I enjoy seeing a run-down home flipped and made beautiful, and become a benefit to a neighborhood. Now, I get to run my own business and spend more time with my family and help homeowners like you that are facing tough situations.
