Is it difficult to sell your family home?
It’s true that any home can be sold for the right price. But what are some common barriers that will affect price? Here are some unusual things that make home sales difficult.
1: Street name
Yes, even street names can sometimes get in the way of people because they are silly, difficult, or offensive, unpopular, or culturally unacceptable.
The Remedy: There is not much you can do here.
I have had however one home that was on a street corner and the owner applied to change the address to the adjoining street.
2: No sun or no light
Sunlight and light can really lift your viewings and enjoyment for a potential inspection. If your home faces completely south or has limited windows, your property will feel dreary and damp.
The Remedy: Make sure your open time and photography is coordinated with the agent.
Make sure you grab the best time for your home.
3: Empty houses or worse, crowded houses
An empty house means no charm, and many people couldn’t imagine what their belongings would be like. We have a fantastic podcast on this. Listen here: How Furniture Hire Can Get You the Sale. The house should be as organised as a magazine shoot. Sometimes the difference can be $100,000!
