Tried To Sell It Yourself It is an understandable idea: try to market your home on your own. Unfortunately, that course of action more often results in frustration rather than a sale. (FSBO Link) If your course of advertising exposure hasn't resulted in an acceptable offer you need to determine the next best course of action.

Had It For Sale With A Realtor And It Didnīt Sell? In the last several years with such a busy market, the number of Realtors licensed in Lee County has more than tripled! And, the days of homes selling in the first days and going well over asking price seem to be gone. This starts to result in properties coming off the market, unsold, when the contract to sell your home ends. This trend has been increasing on a daily basis in the last six months. Experience and success are proof of an agentīs abilities to market all types of properties effectively, solve problems, and have happy customers and friends.
What Was Wrong And What You Might Think About Changing Usually, there is one of two problems that result from an unsuccessful marketing period. One problem results from not many people coming to see the home at all or, the other, youīll have lots of showings but receive no substantial offers.
You need to take a harder look about what needs to be changed when addressing the first problem. After a home has been on the market for some time, only certain changes, done in specific order based solely on that particular property, will alter the activity you are getting. In other words, different homes need different solutions. From a condo to a multifamily to a single family home in an upscale neighborhood, a thorough analysis by an experienced professional who can pinpoint what needs to be done will likely result in a successful sale.
The second problem, you're getting lots of showings but receiving no offers, can usually be solved more simply. Typically, this situation proves things are going well - since generating activity is the most important - but as the market gets more competitive, it is important to keep an eye on the changing activity in your neighborhood, this will make you more aware of your competition.
