Unattractive Neighborhood

The neighborhood your Houston house is in can be a deterring factor to some buyers. When a Realtor shows a property to a prospective buyer the first thing they see is the neighborhood on the way there. If the neighborhood is not what they are looking for, they will not be interested in the house, it will probably not matter how great the house is.

Some things buyers will frown upon when visiting a neighborhood are:

  • Graffiti
  • Garbage in the street
  • Abandoned houses
  • Bars on windows
  • People being loud outside
  • Lack of sidewalks, or sidewalks in need of repair
  • Bulletproof glass at convenience stores

This is one factor that is out of your control when selling your Houston house. There is nothing you can do about your neighborhood but it is a main reason why you can not sell your Houston house.

Competition

How does your Houston house stack up to the competition? Are there better houses actively on the market? Your Houston Realtor should be actively looking over your subdivision to stay up to date with what is selling and at what prices. Have them prepare you a report on what your competition looks like. Look over that list, is there more attractive houses available? Does your house stand out from available properties? If it doesn’t, buyers are overlooking your house. Better pictures, a price drop, better staging can help capture some attention.

In need of repairs or updates

The majority of buyers are looking for a house that is 100% move-in ready. They do not want to deal with any repairs however small they may be. If your Houston house needs repairs make sure the purchase price reflects it. Selling a house with repairs is not impossible, you just have to find the right buyer.

Your Houston house is overpriced

Overpricing your house is a bad tactic. This one should be self explanatory but the amount of sellers that overprice their house is astonishing. When pricing your house look at sold comparable houses that have similar condition, square footage, beds, baths, and features. If you are using a realtor ask them for comps so you can accurately pick a competitive listing price. That will peak a buyer’s interests and help you sell faster.
