Do you own Troy Michigan real estate?  Just when you think you’ve done everything you need to do to get your home ready for the market, months pass and your home doesn’t sell. Consider a few factors that can effect your goal of selling your home.

  • Priced Too High –  If your home has an excessive asking price, it will be harder to sell. With so many Troy Michigan real estate properties available today, a big price tag may turn buyers off. And, your competition down the street may have the same home but a better price. Learn pricing tips for Troy Michigan Real Estate.  
  • The Market – No longer can you simply put a home on the market and watch the offers roll in. Nowadays, you have to be diligent and knowledgeable in your approach. Research the market value of Troy Michigan real estate in your neighborhood and know what kind of competition you’re up against.  And, understand today’s buyers and what they need in order to make a good offer on a home.
  • Unfavorable Location – No matter how gorgeous a home is a bad location can hurt sales. Although you can’t change the location, you can be creative in figuring out ways to appeal to buyers. Offer incentives to attract buyers or lower your asking price.
  • The Appearance – Does your home need some work? If so, you want to attack those issues first before putting your home on the market. Things like dirty carpets and broken appliances can turn buyers off. Try staging your home. This will help to ensure your home dazzles potential buyers.
