3 Things That Prevent Homes Selling Quickly


Over the past year, we’ve talked a lot about how hot the Nashville real estate market has been. It might even seem that any home could sell quickly. We wish it were that easy. However, even with Nashville’s real estate market there are limitations.

Here are 3 things that prevent homes selling quickly:

It’s overpriced – With homes receiving multiple offers in the first few weeks of hitting the market, it might sound as though people are willing to pay any price for a Nashville home. They aren’t. Home prices may be rising, but they are still determined by fair market values in your area. If other homes in your neighborhood are getting a high asking price, but yours doesn’t compare in features and updates that won’t mean you are going to get the same price.

It’s not staged well – There’s a reason that staging houses helps sell them. Homebuyers want to be able to see themselves in your home, not you. It is essential to clean, clean, clean and stage your home to highlight it’s best qualities. Get rid of clutter, fix small issues and showcase your home to get the best price possible as quickly as possible.

For Sale By Owner – One reason that Nashville homes are selling quickly is because there are a lot of homebuyers searching. However, if your home isn’t on the MLS or available to see online you’re missing valuable marketing opportunities. Not to mention that for homebuyers, For Sale By Owner can be downright scary. After all, buying a home is huge investment and most homebuyers prefer to work with REALTORS.
