If your house isn’t selling as quickly as you’d hoped, now is the perfect time to reevaluate your strategy—and make your home as appealing as possible before the spring real estate boom hits in a few months.

But how, exactly, do you do that?

In a recent article on, real estate experts shared their top tips for reviving a listing, including:

  • Switch up the lighting. Improving the lighting in your home is a simple and relatively inexpensive way to feel the home feel brighter and more open—and adding new light fixtures can improve the look and feel of a room, making it more appealing to buyers.
  • Spruce up your outdoor space. Outdoor space can be a huge selling point to buyers. Hire a landscape designer to spruce up your outdoor space—and stage it in a way that feels cozy and inviting (which will help would-be buyers see the space’s potential).
  • Make staging a non-negotiable. Speaking of staging, if you want your house to sell, you need to do it. If you can, hire a professional to stage your home in a way that appeals to buyers. If that’s not possible, you can also try virtual staging. Adding those photos to your online listing will help buyers see your home’s potential—and help you get your home sold.

Bottom line? If your house isn’t selling, it can be discouraging—but with a few adjustments, it is possible to revive your listing, appeal to buyers, and get your house sold.
