There are a few possibilities we've come across:
1) Overpriced - some sellers list their property for more than what the comparables are showing and this can price out buyers especially if they expect a multiple offer situation. It might also not pop up on their search criteria if the price is out of their range.
2) Bad location - it can be hard to tell what a neighborhood looks/feels like just by looking at photos on the internet. Sometimes neighbors and the cleanliness of the area can play a factor in the sale as well.
3) Difficult to deal with sellers - some sellers have a price in mind they will accept and won't even counteroffer, negotiate, or compromise with any buyer requests. When there's no mutual agreement of terms then the deal is off!
4) Difficult to deal with agents - We've seen agents lose a deal for their clients by making promises they can't keep or even trying to force a seller or other agents to agree to their clients terms.
5) Tenant Occupied - most buyers are looking for a home to occupy themselves and if the sale is subject to keeping the existing lease then it may sit until the tenants are gone. Tenant occupied homes are also harder to show (coordinating schedules) and personal items can make it hard for buyers to look past the clutter and see the house.
