So…What Are Those Things That Are Keeping Your House From Selling in Memphis?

 Homebuilders and real estate investors are seeing lots of big opportunities in the Memphis area. Some home buyers have chosen to focus on Shelby County, others see the biggest opportunities much closer to the Megasite of West Tennessee  in Brownsville, the future home of Ford Motor Co. You can see the drone video of the Blue Oval City and how it will make significant growth and population increases.

Suppose you believe you’ve taken every step necessary to market your home to bring the highest possible returns on the sale. In that case, you may need to take another look at your house from the perspective of an unemotionally involved buyer. It can be costly not to review these potential deal breakers waiting just beyond your front door, leaving a first impression that cannot be erased from the minds of buyers when they reflect on their potential options for their next home.

If you’ve been trying to sell and you’re stunned at the lack of response, especially from walk-throughs, you may wonder what you’ve been doing wrong. We’re here to help, so read on as we explore five surprising things that may be keeping your house from selling in Memphis and the steps you can take to correct the issues.


While your nose may have become blinded to the familiar smells of your home, buyers walking through are sure to notice, keeping your house from selling in Memphis, things like extreme cooking odors, apparent signs of smoking in the house, or the noticeable presence of pets. Try toning down the cooking odors during the listing period and banish smoking indoors. As for pets, ventilate sufficiently and remove all outward signs of your pets, such as bowls, cages, and the pet itself, for showings. Are you surprised to learn that keeping an unlived-in appearance may also be keeping your house from selling? Overly sterile homes are uninviting, so it’s best to settle somewhere between clean and lived-in so buyers can envision themselves in the space. Clutter can be just as much, if not more, of a turn-off for buyers who walk through during showings. Top agents hire professional stagers to strike the perfect balance. Stagers will have you remove excess supplies to empty storage spaces, oversize furniture to help rooms appear more spacious, and may even have your furniture put in storage, using props to help enhance the presentation. If you’d rather avoid the walk-throughs, and the out-of-pocket expenses of prep work and marketing, a direct sale to local professional buyers like those at Memfixerupper means you won’t need to worry about showings. At Memfixerupper, our professional buyers don’t believe sellers should pay for anything before the sale, and you won’t even pay any commissions, saving you even more.
