Here are several reasons homes will sometimes have no real buyers:
  • Photos -- If your listing has yet to sell, you may want to revisit the photos you’re using to present it on the MLS.
  • Unreasonable price -- The toughest pill to swallow, but every so often this is the problem.
  • Parking -- A difficult driveway or a condo without good parking can be slow to sell.
  • Decor -- Neutral decor doesn't excite anyone, but flashy decor can distract home buyers.
