5 reasons your home isn't selling

Here's how to move your hard-to-sell property

The latest data suggest this is a good time to be selling a home.

Prices continue to go up.

The median sales price for all types of homes reached a record $236,400 in June, surpassing the peak median sales price during the housing bubble of $230,400, which was set in July 2006.

June's price increase marks the 40th consecutive month of year-over-year gains, according to the National Association of Realtors.

The biggest problem in most markets is lack of inventory.

There simply aren't enough quality houses, town homes and condominiums for sale to satisfy all of the buyers. That's why the average home is selling in just 34 days this summer.

So if you've had a "For Sale" sign languishing in your yard for more than a couple of months, there's a good chance you're doing something wrong or have a serious problem that you're unaware of and haven't addressed.

Here are 5 top reasons your home isn't selling and what you can do about it.
