The last thing you expect to do when you put your home up for sale is to remove it from the market. When it comes to home selling, there are a number of situations in which that is exactly what you should consider.

The following are 4 examples in which taking your house off the market is the best course of action:

1. Your House Has a Serious Problem

If you discover there’s a serious problem requiring significant repairs (like, the roof needs to be replaced), then you should take your home off the market. Address the problem. If you don’t, the problem will scare potential buyers away.

2. Your Personal Situation Has Changed

If your financial situation has changed for the better or the worse, you should consider whether that affects the sale of the house. For example, if you were being forced to sell due to financial stress but suddenly found a job, you may want to take your house off the market.

3. You’re Getting Bad Offers

If your real estate agent helped you price the house properly and the only offers you’re getting are lowball offers, you might want to remove your listing. The longer you keep your house on the market, the more buyers will think there’s something wrong with it. They will continue lowballing you.

4. You’re in the Middle of a Buyer’s Market

If there are way too many houses for sale in your area, it can result in fewer buyers willing to pay your price. You may want to take your listing down and wait until the local real estate market changes in your favor.

Sometimes removing your house from the market is a good idea. These are just a few examples.
