Reasons People May Not be Making Offers to Buy Your House...

If you leave your massive dogs, who sound as if they would eat Cujo, in the utility room with a door latch that allows the door to open partially so their slavering maws can be seen, I'm probably not going to tour the entire house.

If the three children are at home with no adult supervision, they probably aren't going to leave the house in the shape it was before you left. Or you just didn't do any picking up before you left.

If you own property with lovely pasture land and a beautiful home, but people just don't make offers, it may be because you sold some of the land on the front, next to the drive, to someone who put in a double-wide.

Your beautiful home, with incredible trees and landscaping, is directly across the road from a setting straight out of The Grapes of Wrath. And that setting was there when you built the house.

Those two bedrooms on the far end of the house would be great-except there's no access to a bathroom on the same end of the house.

Your house is lovely. The neighbors with the raggedy travel trailer in the yard and knee high grass-not so much.

You added a garage, but there is no way to get into the back yard except THROUGH the garage...
