Have you tried selling your OC home in the past and it didn’t sell?
You’re not alone.
As long time Orange County Real Estate agents we’ve encountered many people over the years who have tried selling their homes in OC and were unsuccessful.
In this post we will break down the top 4 reasons why your OC home didn’t sell so you can get back on the right track towards selling your home and moving onto your next house.
Reason 1 – Your Home Lacked an Internet Presence
The first why your home didn’t sell is because it lacked an internet presence.
Even though you think your home was listed online if buyers couldn’t find your home on websites like Trulia, Zillow or Activerain you potentially missed the ability to attract the attention of hundreds of home buyers who would have been interested in your home.
Reason 2 – You Priced Your Home Too High
Another common reason why your home may have not sold is because it was priced too high.
You can’t overprice a home in any Real Estate market, regardless of the demand, because buyers are smarter in 2014 and they can easily look up a home on their smart phones or tablets to know it’s overpriced or not and that means you will easily lose a buyers interest if it’s overpriced.
Reason 3 – There Weren’t Enough Photos of Your Home
Thanks to the Internet there are many buyers searching online for homes and if your home lacked enough photos you lost out on potentially attracting the right buyers to view your home.
Pictures are important because, most home buyers will start their home searches online via their computers first, before hiring a Realtor, and it’s important to provide a home buyer with more than enough pictures and information about a home so they will want to see it in person.
Reason 4 – You Didn’t Stage Your Home to Sell
Last of all, but most important, one of the biggest reasons why your home didn’t sell is because you didn’t stage it to sell.
Staging your home to sell is important because, you have to present your home as a “product” which someone will want to buy rather than keeping all of your momentous and memories in the home which will only obscure the vision of a homebuyer and stop them from seeing themselves living there.
