There comes a time when you need to make some changes to your home before selling. But even after listing, you experience cold feet, or the process stresses you out. It’s normal for listings to sit dormant until one viewer saves the listing for later.
Right now, it’s essential to speak with your realtor about reasons you may pull your home off the market and sell later.
There’s No History of Inspections
Some individuals sell their homes with no history of inspections, causing future buyers to question why the house is sold “as-is.” When selling, buyers expect there to be some history of inspections.
It doesn’t matter if a homeowner did a home inspection for the first time this year as long as buyers know there will be no surprises after purchasing the home. Take the time now to schedule repairs and inspections for things such as plumbing, asbestos, and electrical wiring.
Delisting Seems Convenient in the Moment
Delisting may be convenient for you because family matters come up. Some family members may find it difficult to detach from a place that was home to them.
If you want to have a celebration or one last meal with family and friends in your old home, it’s a good idea to not list right now or delay it by a few more months.
The House is Undergoing Renovations
If you decided at the last minute to perform a renovation, or it’s in the process of one, delist your property. Once you’ve finished all your projects, go ahead and update your description to let prospective buyers know the home is recently updated.
If you’re stuck on what to renovate, consider doing home renovations that increase value and pique homebuyers’ interest.

It is entirely normal for things to come up. Sometimes, financial costs are a reason to delist, especially if you weren’t aware of the closing costs. It’s best to communicate with realtors to ensure you understand your listing’s contract and any costs you need to cover.
The Home Is Listed at a High Price
Depending on your area, your high-ticketed house may be too much for the average home buyer. It’s vital to look at trends and research the area’s average home price, especially if you live in an area that’s not as wealthy as others.
Buying or selling a house requires plenty of research and support from a real estate agent. If you’re unsure what to do next, discuss options with your agent; they’ll be able to guide you. Consider these reasons you may pull your house off the market to relist later to make the right decision for your situation.
