  • Parking — A difficult driveway or a interior row/townhouse without good parking can be slow to sell.
  • Floor plan — Strange or awkward floorplans may also make a home linger, such as older interior row/townhouses where you have to walk through a bedroom to get to a second bedroom,.
  • Location — Every location has a buyer, but every now and again it takes a while to find THAT buyer
  • Unreasonable price — The toughest pill to swallow, but now and then this is the problem.
