If you’re having trouble selling your Oakville real estate, you need to know why! There are many factors that can affect home sales, and you’ll need to examine your house carefully to figure out what the problem is. It could be that you’ve priced your home too high, maybe you aren’t marketing your home correctly. There are just so many reasons that this can happen, so it’s important to make sure you know why so you can fix it! Here we’re going to go over a few of the most common reasons, and how you can fix them (like calling us!)

How did You Price Your Home?

If you’re selling your home on your own, you had to price it. What frame of reference did you use to make your pricing decision? Did you look at homes in your neighbourhood to compare what a home like your own are going for? You’ll want to look at homes that are on the market now and homes that have sold in the last few months to get a proper frame of reference for pricing your Oakville real estate. If you didn’t do this, your pricing can be far off the mark. If you price your home too low people will think something is wrong, if you price it too high people will look for a better deal. Price is very important.

How Did You Present Your Home?

The image your present to buyers of your home is what they’re going to want to buy. Most people aren’t actually buying a house, they’re buying a lifestyle, a version of themselves that’s much better than the one they have now. If you want to be able to sell your home, you’re going to need to appeal to people on this level. Hiring a home staging expert can go a long way towards ensuring that you project the right image. You’ll also want to work with a real estate agent like us to make sure that you’re gearing your home towards the right people.

How Are You Marketing Your Home?

Marketing your home is important and you’ll want to do this the right way off the bat. This means you’re going to need us to help you! The first place any buyer or realtor will look are sites like Realtor.ca that are hooked up to the MLS. The MLS or Multiple Listing Service will be connected to virtually every site that features Oakville real estate; you can’t get on it without a licensed realtor or real estate agent. If you want to market your home for maximum return, let us help!

You shouldn’t have to try and sell your home on your own; we have the knowledge and the experience that will help you sell your home successfully. With so much that can go wrong with selling a home, you shouldn’t have to do it yourself.
