It may come as a shock that many people purchase a home before ever setting foot inside. These buyers may be moving to a new country or city far away, or they may not have the time or resources to visit for a home search before the big move.

You have plenty of people walk through it or inquire about it, but you aren’t receiving bids. What’s the problem?
The price. It’s the number one reason homes don’t sell.
