The condition of your Colorado Springs Home could be another reason your home expired. There is competition among sellers in Colorado Springs when over 6,000 single family homes are for sale in El Paso County. If your home is not in good condition then it is unlikely it will sell unless you price it well below the market values in the area and target investors.
Buyers may be deterred from your home if the carpet is stained, the exterior needs painting, or if the yard is a mess. Many people do not want to purchase a fixer upper because they don’t have time to make improvements with their busy lifestyles.
Was the condition of your home the reason it did not sell? If so, make a list of all of the things in your Colorado Springs home that need to repaired, replaced, or cleaned before you put it up for sale again.
In this competitive market, it is wise to hire a stager for assistance. Your stager can advise you on rooms that need to be de-cluttered, furniture arrangements, and color schemes.
There are many homes for sale in the Colorado Springs area that are not clean. Take the time to thoroughly clean your home; it will make an enormous difference. Best of all, it’s free if you clean it yourself!
De-clutter by placing extra items in storage, holding a garage sale, or donating items to the needy in your area. Moving will be much easier once your home sells if you get rid of everything you do not use anymore in advance!
