Your North Texas Home Isn’t Selling – What To Do Now?

North Texas Home Isn't Selling

Selling a home can be stressful, to say the least. It’s been six months, nine months, or even a year, and your North Texas home isn’t selling. There are countless reasons why a home may not sell, including a slow market, price that’s too high, or even a realtor who isn’t doing the work you think he or she should be doing. Before you make the snap decision that you need a new real estate agent, consider the following.

You may be able to sell your Dallas-area home for more money than you think, and quicker. A few considerations:

Thorough preparation

Did you get a broker or agent involved before you put your home on the market? An effective broker can recommend changes that will make your home more attractive to potential buyers, such as clearing the clutter. While you may think all of your decorations and knick-knacks are charming, buyers want a spacious, airy look -which can be achieved by de-cluttering. Clear off the kitchen counters, straighten up the bookshelves. remove some of the items you have setting around on coffee and end tables.

Updates

What are your competitors doing in an effort to sell? Whatever it is, you should do it better. A professional stager can make all of the difference in whether your home is appealing and sells quicker, although it will require a bit of investment. Whether it’s new granite counter tops or engaging paint colors, a professional stager can help you get the price you want, so that you can avoid continually lowering the price of your home in order to sell it.

Pictures and video

Today, 9 out of 10 home buyers use the Internet to search for homes in the areas they are looking to buy in. Clear pictures and videos taken from flattering angles are crucial! Take pictures of every room in its most flattering light, making sure to include any focal points that really stand out. Quality is key! Pictures that are fuzzy or out of focus will be overlooked by potential buyers – and realtors.

Ultimately, working with a skilled Dallas realtor and perhaps a stager will ensure that your home is in optimum condition so that you get more “bites” from potential buyers.

At Team Nelson, we understand how frustrating it can be to have your home listed on the market for months on end, or even longer. Let our Flower Mound real estate agents help you sell your home faster – and at the price you want!

What People Are Saying

  • Team Nelson sold our first home within a week of posting it. We called him a few years later to sell our second home and they sold it within 12 days. Both times we got our full asking price and closing went smoothly! I will use them when I get ready to buy again, without hesitation!!!

  • Team Nelson took care of a complicated transaction involving us purchasing a home at the same time as selling our own. They were on the spot with responsiveness and backing each other up along the way. They kept their internal team up to speed, particularly Casey and Kelly, such that each knew what was going on at all times; a truly successful team effort to coordinate both selling & buying; my wife Sandy and I give them well-deserved high marks.
