San Diego is a seller’s dream. If you’re having a hard time selling, you might begin to panic. Before you do that, go over all of your options and make sure you’re taking the right approach to selling your home. You may have other considerations to make – and one of which is bypassing the regular market entirely.
Take a look at the other properties in your neighborhood. Investigate the ones that have sold, or the ones that have attracted a lot of potential buyers. What do those homes have that your home doesn’t have? If your house is priced similarly to the homes that are flying off the market but you aren’t generating any leads, the issue could be that your home doesn’t fit expectations of the everyday San Diego home buyer.
Buyers have a tendency to walk into a home and envision themselves living there. They don’t approach a property with the mindset of a renovator. They want to unpack and start living their lives immediately. If you have ancient cabinets and lighting fixtures from the 70’s, that’s exactly what they’re going to see. They want a modernized home, and if you can’t offer that, they’ll look elsewhere.
You can take on the job of modernizing your home yourself, but you need to be careful with the way you spend your money. Not all renovations will add value to a home, and that’s where you find yourself in a tricky situation. At the end of the day, you can wind up losing money. If you intend to sell your home at a loss, you might as well just reduce your asking price. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty, an investor will nearly always be willing to take your home in its current condition.
