Putting your property on the market can be a stressful time, but what happens if it doesn’t sell?

According to Which? there are a whole plethora of reasons a property might not sell, whether it’s poor marketing and bad pictures, being overpriced or even having too much clutter. 

Here are a few of the homes in High Wycombe that just won’t budge:

First listed: April 2017

St. Marks Close, HP13


This two-bedroom top floor flat first appeared on Zoopla three years ago in April 2017 and has stayed at the same asking price.

St Marks Close is located a short 14-minute walk to High Wycombe station and the flat is listed as an ideal investment opportunity. 

Perfect for commuters, what this small and compact flat lacks in space it more than makes up for in location.

Hughenden Garden Village, HP13


First appearing for sale in 2017 this one-bedroom retirement flat has seen a number of price increases over its three years on the market. 

Initially up for sale at £259,950 the property was increased in price by a total of £80,050 only to be reduced by £81,000 earlier this year. 

Notoriously hard to sell, retirement properties are not always the safest investment warns the Home Owners Alliance. 

Research by the Elderly Accommodation Counsel showed that around half of new build retirement homes sold during a 10-year period were later resold at a loss.

Brecon Way, HP13


This three-bedroom terraced property has been on the market for a number of years and just refuses to sell.

A price reduction in September 2018 of £24,000 hasn't done much to help the sale of the property.

In need of modernisation and a complete renovation both inside and out, the house leaves a lot to the imagination.

However, despite it's flaws this property does offer a lot of scope for the right buyer to really put their stamp on the place.
