- Lower your asking price.
- Hire a professional photographer if you didn’t do so initially
- Further de-clutter and try some fresh paint on specific walls if needed
- After say 180 days- Personally, I would hire a new listing agent.
Homes do indeed get stale as the “days on market” clock grows. Value has a tendency to decline as the “d-o-m” clock grows and all sellers should be pro-active in dropping their price as time goes on. If you are not allowing your Realtor to do open houses- change that ASAP. Open every other week at a minimum. Install a for sale sign if you have yet done so.
Spending $5,000 to go repairs, upgrades, staging, etc is so MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than dropping your price $10,000. It may not seem logical to you- but look at your home through the eyes of potential buyers. That $5,000 you spend is going to put your home in a whole new light-
A $10,000 price drop may not. This final rule of thumb does not apply if your home is already super duper gorgeous. If that is the case then your only option is to drop your asking price.
