You put a lot of effort into listing your house with an agent and getting everything ready for sale yet you hear nothing. Then after a long time, your listing expires. Now you’re back at square one. We know, it’s frustrating.
But not all is lost, here are 4 things you can do with a home that won’t sell on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), even if you think your situation is totally hopeless.
1. Update Your House Then List It Again
It’s probably not the first thing you want to hear but it is an option. If you want to list your house again, then we recommend updating appliances, making repairs, staging your home, and doing anything else you think can to give your home a new look. This would your chances of selling your house on the MLS.
2. Find Tenants
The house is in good shape but you’re struggling to sell it through the traditional route of listing with an agent, then you might consider renting it out. Just make sure that you find good tenants who will treat your property with the respect it deserves and make payments on time. If you plan to sell the house after renting it for some time then consider reading this post on how to go about with your tenants.
3. Wait For The Market To Improve
This probably isn’t the answer you’re looking for but if it’s a tough market for your price-point, then it might be better to wait until the market improves. An improved market means a buyer might be willing to pay the asking price for your property.
4. Sell To A Professional Home Buyer
