Chicago Trib Wants to Help You Sell Your House

The headline is a bit deceptive, but the intent is good.

In an article published Sunday, 6 reasons your house won’t sell, the Trib hits on the six main reasons homes do not sell, and gives advice on turning things around during the Bush Recession:

  1. It looks drab in photos.
  2. It’s overpriced for the neighborhood.
  3. There’s no “wow” factor inside.
  4. No one knows it’s there.
  5. Your commission isn’t high enough or the agent isn’t splitting the commission equally.
  6. Your house won’t pass inspection.

It’s worth clicking the link above and studying each of these carefully. Marketing anything in a recession is difficult, but not impossible.  The only mistake is to stop trying.
