Because it is overpriced!

We live in a world where ALL the buyers have access to the same information we use to price homes.  You can't fool anyone into thinking your home is worth more than it is.

Buyers see many homes these days before they buy.  They start on the internet.  They look at the pictures, the maps, the satellite shots, HOA info, taxes, school grades, walk scores, public records sold comps and permits pulled, insurance, etc.  When they finally call their Realtor,  they know what they want, and what it is worth.  They probably know more about your house than you do.

If a home is over priced, the buyers think the seller is unreasonable, uninformed, or even greedy.  They will tell us, that seller needs to sit, and sit until they understand they are overpriced, and then lower the price to what it is worth.  They will not waste their time offering what the home is worth, because they understand the seller won't take it.   If the seller won't listen to their Real Estate Professional, then they wont listen to the buyer.  So don't waste my time.

Also the number of days a home is on the market plays against the seller.  After a while it becomes a big red flag and does more harm.  You are much more likely to get offers lower than the value, if you have been on the market a long time. 

In the beginning you have your best shot at getting the most for your home... in the beginning, when it goes on the market... at the right price.  

Bottom line,  listen to your Realtor, and price your home correctly in the beginning, sell it, and get on with your life.
