Why Homes Don’t Sell and Expire on the Market

A concern I encounter from sellers in the Denver Metro area is the expiration of their homes on the market when listed by a different agent. I explain that this happens when a listing agreement with an agent concludes without a sale, leading to the property’s removal from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). This situation often results in sellers receiving numerous inquiries from agents keen to take on the listing. While overwhelming, understanding this part of the selling process is essential for effectively moving forward.

Facing High Rates

This year has been particularly challenging due to the highest mortgage rates we’ve seen in decades, significantly impacting affordability and complicating the sales process. Despite these obstacles, the persistence and strategic efforts have led to many successful sales, underscoring the critical importance of correct pricing, maintaining the property in top condition, and investing in quality marketing.

My Seller’s Guide

In addressing why homes don’t sell, I focus on three primary factors: pricing, condition, and marketing. It’s clear that overpricing, neglecting the home’s condition, and subpar marketing can severely hinder a sale. Today’s buyers are informed and cautious, especially when it comes to properties that have lingered on the market or show signs of deferred maintenance. My Seller’s Guide was created as a testament to my commitment to providing genuine value and actionable advice, ensuring sellers know how to showcase their homes effectively.
