If Your House Is Not Selling, Is It Really the Fault of the Housing Market or Bad Economy?

Blame is always the easy way out. Rationalization is always a tool we can rely on when it supports our opinion.

The real estate market has been challenging this year, especially in Brevard County, Florida.  But, real estate is selling. Last month there were over 500 houses sold in Brevard County.  Last month there were over 4,500 house that did not sell.

If you have your house or condo on the market and it is not selling, consider:
  • Price - Consider the competition.
  • Curb Appeal - That "bass" or "manatee" mailbox may look good to you but does it signal what is behind your door? What about the landscaping?
  • Exposure - Marketing where your likely buyer will see your property is key.
  • Ease of Access - 24 hour notice for showing does not usually work!
  • Staging - Once they are inside, does the clutter make your rooms look small? That red paint may look good to you but neutral works best.
Real estate is selling. There is a reason yours is not moving and it is not just the fault of the market!
