Summer is coming to a close. Kids are going back to school, the days are growing shorter, and the “For Sale” sign is the front yard is casting a long shadow across your lawn. You were sure this would be done by now. But your home hasn’t sold yet, so now what? What are your options? At this point it is important to take a look and see how you got here, so that you know how to move forward.
In the Conejo Valley in the last 60 days, 386 homes were sold according to the MLS. Another 143 homes that were listed either expired or were cancelled, so just over 25% of properties listed did not sell for some reason. If your home falls into this category there are some questions you are likely asking yourself.
Do you still need to move? When do you need to be in your new home? If the answers to these are no and never, you probably have already stopped reading. But if the answer is absolutely, and yesterday, then you’ve got some work to do.
The first key to selling is to know your competition. Who is on the market today? There are currently 469 homes actively listed for sale in the Conejo Valley. How does your house compare with the properties listed in your neighborhood? What did the home in your neighborhood that sold this summer, while yours sat, sell for? Armed with this you can know what price you need to be at to attract a buyer before the competition does.
What was the feedback from buyers on showings? Are their critiques useful, and are there opportunities for you to allow your home to show better to prospective buyers?
