11 (brutally honest) Reasons Your Home Hasn't Sold


Your house is on the market. And it has been... for what seems like forever. Other homes are selling. In fact, you've seen many of them sell quickly. You've heard of bidding wars, multiple offers, and even cash offers in your area. But, not your house. There it sits, week after week. Month after Month. Are you wondering, "Why?"


Are you actually ready to hear the answer? Really think about that for a minute. If you do want the answer, it's here for you. But it might sting a bit. Maybe even a lot. So decision time. Would you rather:

  1. Preserve your price and NOT sell your house, or

  2. Prepare yourself to hear something or a few somethings, you don't want to hear but get your house sold ASAP?
