Many Showings Yet No Offers for a Home

Sometimes it is not price when a home has many showings yet no offers. Sometimes it is a unique home, meaning not odd but just different from all of the others. Especially if it has been designed for use by one particular type of person, say, maybe an artist. Or worse, a person who has too much money and little vision.

Sacramento buyers prefer and appreciate conformity.

I've heard sellers speak of reasons they purchased such homes and we can't duplicate that place in history. Sometimes we are searching for that needle-in-a-haystack buyer. Sometimes not. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Many Home Showings and No Offers, What is Wrong?

Pricing, condition, and location...that about covers it right? If you can fix the condition, great, otherwise the price needs to be adjusted - same for a location issue, such as a noisy road nearby. However, there are certain homes, as you say, that are so unique that they take longer to market.  We've had a few - that's the time for everyone to be patient.

Aloha Elizabeth - it's not necessarily price and the reasons why as you write are many. Sometimes price or days on the market aren't even a concern. You understand the market and one property is simply just another piece of the puzzle that comprises the entire picture.

Hi Elizabeth-  I consulted on a home once that was well built, and in fact, the owner was a builder. There was very little that I had to suggest as the home was in excellent condition. The agent said it was priced below what a similar house would be.  The only oops moment for this house was the location. When you stepped into backyard, there was no missing the noise from the very busy street

Elizabeth, I remember listing two homes that were way too unique, and as much as buyers SAID they liked the home, it was slow to see offers.

Good morning Elizabeth. I tend to agree with your thinking but after all is said and done I do think it comes down to price.
