Questions of the Month | Housing Questions Sahuarita | The Sahuarita Connection

Every month we receive questions from real estate buyers and sellers. Each and every month we will bring you some of the most asked questions…

Q: My house has been on the market for more than 30 days and is cleaner and more attractive than other homes currently listed. Why isn’t it selling?

A: Perhaps you need to re-evaluate your price. If your price is right and your home is attractive, you should have received offers by now.

Properties Priced Right:

Over-Priced Properties:

• Increase showings
• Bring more interested buyers
• Creates ease in the appraisal process
• Keeps the prime market momentum – the first 30 days
• Sends a message to buyers about your motivation to sell
• Help sell the competition
• Reduce showings
• Lose buyers unwilling to negotiate
• Can cause appraisal problems
• Lose the prime market momentum – the first 30 days
• Sends a message to buyers about your motivation to sell

It is important to remember that the value of your home is ultimately not set by you, but rather by the amount of money a buyer is willing to pay for it at any given time.
