I've had my house on the market for over 9 months, and it's not even being shown anymore. What can I do to sell it?
There's lots that you can do to move a stale listing! The first of which is to hire a professional stager. Here's how it usually works: You'll hire a stager and temporarily take your house off the market (and make sure that it is removed from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)). Your professional stager will then come into your home and work his magic. De-cluttering, re-arranging, giving the house some more curb appeal.
Once the house has been staged, re-list the house with your Realtor. It'll come up on the MLS as a fresh listing. You can even advertise it as a "freshly staged home." Have your Realtor schedule an open house to kick off the new and improved listing. Make sure that a new set of photographs is taken for the listing and that the new photographs are used on the MLS. And ask your real estate agent to invite some of the perspective buyers who have already seen the house to come back and take another look. Chances are that they won't even recognize the house! You'll have the house sold in no time at all!
I've had several clients who have used this strategy, and their houses have sold within a month of the staging!
