4 Reasons Why You Can’t Sell Your Home

Posted by La Vila Sol on 12/03/2023

What to do if I am unable to sell my home?

Failing to sell a home can be frustrating, especially if you need to sell your home quickly. There are several reasons why this may happen. In this Real Estate Blog of Inmobiliaria La Vila Sol in Villajoyosa, Alicante, we are going to give you 5 of the most common reasons why you can’t sell your property. And we will not only give you the reasons why a home is not selling, but we will also give you possible solutions.

  1. High / unrealistic price

We understand how fond we are of our home and want to get the highest possible offer for our home, but it may be that the home is priced too high in the market. There is a lot of supply of homes for sale on the Costa Blanca, and asking for a higher price than it actually has right now in the real estate market will decrease the interest of buyers.

We recommend that you talk to your trusted Real Estate Agent and ask him/her to make a study of the real estate market, since lowering the price drastically and desperately is not good either.

If the property is for sale at a high price, compared to similar properties in the area, it may be that adjusting the price of the property will arouse the interest of potential buyers.

  1. The property is not visually appealing

A home with poorly painted walls, very old furniture and even untidy furniture can make potential clients show no interest in your home. Most people have difficulty seeing the potential in a house that is not visually appealing.

For this reason, we recommend as far as possible, a coat of white paint can work miracles. It is very important that the house looks tidy and clean, potential clients should be able to imagine themselves living in the house, keeping personal items such as photos for the client’s visit is a good idea.

If you have outdated furniture, a good way to make your home look a little more modern is to cover the old sofa with a nice fabric or put a tablecloth on the dining table. The better your home looks, the better chance you have of selling your home faster. Of course, you can ask your Realtor to give you some ideas. You can achieve a visually appealing home for very little money.

  1. You don´t let the Real Estate Agent work

Disappear when there are visitors, it is best not to be present when the Realtor is going to show your home, there are buyers who may not be interested in your home for the simple reason of feeling persecuted by the current owner of the house. If for some reason you must be present, stand aside while the visit is being made.

Let the Realtor do his job, he will surely know his client well and will know how to guide the buyer through your home. Once the visit has taken place, you can contact the Real Estate Agency and they will give you all the details of the visit.

  1. The Real Estate Agency that is in charge of selling your home is not the right one.

Like everything in this world, some are better than others. Sometimes, the problem with the sale of your house is not the house itself, but that the Real Estate Agency that is selling your house is not the most suitable one. This can be for a number of reasons, from the marketing they use to not having the right buyers.
