A lot of people think about how a certain house or neighborhood pertains just to them. They like to think, “Well if i don’t need it then i don’t want it.” However, what about your buyers? Most of the time you’re not moving into a house you’ll live in for the rest of your life, so consider who you’ll be selling to. If you own a home that is targeted for a small family, even if you don’t have kids, think about schools. If a potential buyer loves your home as much as you did when you bought it, but they just don’t like that local schools you can’t help that. So consider the future buyers you should be expecting for your house.
Too many times people have the mindset that if the sellers of the house they love really want to sell their home, they will drastically reduce the price. This is not true even to the slightest degree! If you want a seller to reduce to a price that you love, good luck. Put yourself in their shoes and think, “Would I rather sell my home right now for ‘x amount’ less, or wait until the perfect buyer walks through my door?” Well most people like to wait on that perfect buyer. Its not like selling an old bicycle on craigslist where you just want to get rid of it so the first offer seems to be the best offer. Remember, the key is to think like the seller and you might be able to get a better deal.

When you are attempting to show your home and no one seems to be interested, there are typically three factors that cause this. The first factor is location, if your home is in a bad location you can not change that. That is just where your home is and you need to accept that. The second factor is condition, this can easily be changed. If your home has old vinyl with water damage and peeling paint, nobody will be interested! You need to make sure your home is more than presentable. The third factor is price, this is easily changed but can be difficult for the owner. Price is the first thing most people look for, if your home is $5k overpriced some people may not even bother looking at it. The price you set is not easy to let go of, in some cases you have to drop it though. As long as you have good price, condition, and location there is no reason your home shouldn’t be showing.
