Home values continue to drop, hurt sellers | Deseret News One of the biggest hurdles to selling a home is the price, according to Business Insider. It's still a buyer's market, and people selling their home are frequently disappointed.

"When you get the offer, don't be greedy. Take the first reasonable offer. Set a threshold within 5 to 8 percent of your asking price. Make a decision and go with it."
