If nothing is physically wrong with the property, most of the time the inability to sell is due to overpricing camouflaged by denial. A more accurate statement of the situation, for most would-be house sellers, is "We are unwilling to accept the price the market tells us our house is currently worth." These homeowners can sell. They simply won't sell. As long as you choose not to take the amount that buyers will pay for your house, it will continue to languish unsold on the market.
