10 Things to Keep Your San Mateo House From Selling

What could possibly keep your San Mateo house from selling? There’s at least a bazillion. Let’s keep it simple. Here are 10.

10th Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

Fix the little things. Windows and doors that stick or squeak? Faucets that drip? Crusty stuff in the shower grout? Broken cabinet handles?

9th Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

Things fall on people when they open the closet. Yes, buyers look in closets and drawers. Clean them.

8th Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

You’ve offended somebody. Nude art, religious items, dead stuffed things – not good. Take them out of the house.

7th Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

Your family still lives on the walls. In other words: staging. If buyers see you don’t really want to move, they’ll decide they don’t really want to buy. Pictures are interesting; people will look at the pictures and not at the house.

6th Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

It’s a dirty mess. As many times as home buyers say they can see past the mess, they often can’t. When you’re selling your house, you can’t live there like you used to. It’s now a showpiece and it has to look like one.

5th Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

It smells bad. Buyers lead with their nose. If your house smells like dog, cat box or worse – you smoke – forget it.

4th Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

You don’t have a sign. Not having a sign makes it much more difficult for people to find – if they know it’s for sale. What if they don’t know it’s for sale? Every time they drive by, they just keep going.

The 3rd Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

You don’t have a lock box so appointments have to be made during your agent’s schedule. Or you only allow showings when your agent is present.

2nd Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

You won’t let anybody in. You only allow appointments with 24 hours notice. You only allow showings during limited hours.

Number 1 Reason Your San Mateo House Hasn’t Sold

It’s overpriced.
