How does a listing expire in a Seller’s Market?

There are many reasons that cause homes not to sell. There could be competition in the neighborhood that is priced more attractive or that shows better. Sometimes the best features of a home are not highlighted, and this means missed opportunities. Homes with pets or renters can present a host of problems. I find in many of our Metro Detroit areas that homes that are not updated or cluttered are very common.

If you’ve had your home for sale and you’re frustrated not selling it, the most likely answer is you need a more experienced agent. Let Joshua Norber know right away or call 248.785.3737 now.
