Existing-home sales accelerated in January as home buyers shrugged off rising home prices—which surged to an all-time high—and took advantage of lower mortgage rates and moderately higher inventory, according to the National Association of REALTORS®.
NAR’s latest existing-home sales data, which reflects completed transactions for single-family homes, townhomes, condos and co-ops, jumped 3.1% month over month in January. Still, sales are down 1.7% compared to a year earlier.

When it comes to listing their home, most home sellers want three things: 1) to make a lot of money, 2) to put in minimal time and effort, and 3) to sell quickly.

If that’s you, don’t panic! We’ve outlined the top five reasons a home doesn’t sell—and action steps you can take to overcome each of these issues.

Not sure why your property didn’t sell? If you’re not already working with an agent or your listing has expired or been withdrawn, give us a call! We’d be happy to offer a free, no-obligation assessment and create an action plan to get your home SOLD.
