Why Won’t My House Sell? I Need to Sell Fast!
I’ve had several sellers contact me after seeing We Buy Houses ads looking to sell fast, and their main reason for contacting me was because they just couldn’t sell their house for one reason or another. Here’s a few reasons why your house isn’t or won’t sell fast, and what you can do to sell your house fast in the Grand Rapids area.
What You’re Doing Wrong and How to Fix it!
A lot of sellers ask themselves this question. They point the finger at their realtor who failed to sell their house, the market conditions, or the condition of their house. Well… a lot of those are plausible, but the one they overlook the most is themselves as the reason their house won’t sell fast or at all.
Our House Is Worth More:
We all want more money for our house, right? We see our neighbors house sell for around $150,000 so why not ours too? Any “good” Realtor will be able to tell you what your house is worth in its current condition based on comparable sales in the area. You might think your house is worth as much as your neighbors, but theirs is a 4 bed 2 bath ranch with finished basement, granite countertops, and huge fenced in yard while yours is a 2 bed 1 bath on a tiny lot, albeit well taken care of, it will not compare to your neighbors house. Educate yourself, trust your realtor’s opinion of what your house is worth, and you’ll have better luck selling it. It’s hard to come to grips with the fact that you might have to sell your house for less than you thought, but ask yourself “What am I going to do if my house doesn’t sell fast… or at all?” Hopefully your answer is to call a We Buy Houses guy like myself, but in all seriousness take your situation into consideration and ask yourself “Can I afford 2 mortgage payments?” “What else could I be doing instead of sitting around hoping my house sells soon while my situation gets worse?” “How much stress can I take before I cave under the pressure and go nuts?” Make sure you have a plan in place to deal with all scenarios and you’ll sleep better at night, and even help you sell fast!
“But Mike, I owe more than the house is worth!” This will most likely be my next blog post, but there’s options available if you owe more than your house is worth depending on how much, if you’re behind on payments, and condition of your house. If you’re in foreclosure or just on the edge of defaulting let me know or grab a realtor (I’m pro realtor so I could always suggest a good one) so you have several options to choose from to help you sell fast.
