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 was $205,300 in November, which is 5.0% higher than in November 2013. It was the 33rd consecutive month of year-over-year price gains.

And 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 was selling in a very reasonable 60 to 65 days in late 2014.

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.
