Q. My home has been on the market for 7 months ‘by owner’ with no offers. I thought the market was improving?
A. The market has improved. In fact I would argue we’re in the best sellers market I’ve seen in 20 years. If your home shows well, is being marketed properly, and in a price range and location that is appealing, you should have success. Since I haven’t seen your home I can’t advise why it hasn’t sold. But my guess would be that your home is not really on the market. Many FSBO’s put a sign in their yard and hope a buyer comes along. But if your home is not being exposed to the Realtor community you are not on the market. Do yourself a favor and hire a good Realtor who specializes in your area and let them do what they do best – sell.
