Whether it’s overpriced, in the wrong area or just too small - there are plenty of reasons a property might not sell.

According to a survey by Rightmove,  more than 4,000 home-movers were  looking for bigger gardens, homes and space for a home office - however this wasn’t the case for first-time buyers. 

Whatever the reason, here are some Swindon homes that haven’t sold despite being on the market for years:

First listed: March 2018

This Is Wiltshire:

Cloverlands, SN25


This four-bedroom detached house has been on the market for more than two years, in that time it has been reduced by just under £20,000. 

Outside the property boasts an enviable-sized garden, off-road parking and a garage. 

The interior of the property could do with a bit of TLC in some areas but does benefit from a modern bathroom and kitchen. 

First listed: May 2018

This Is Wiltshire:

Lincoln Street, SN1


This two-bedroom flat is currently on the market with Allen and Harris.

Within its two years on the market the property has been reduced three times by a total of £25,000. 

Despite being described as in an 'excellent condition throughout' the property still is yet to sell. 

Offered with no-onward chain the flat is advertised as a great investment purchase. 

First listed: August 2018

This Is Wiltshire:

County Road, SN1


Offering abundant space this three-bedroom terraced house absolutely oozes potential. 

With an "unofficial loft conversion" and a garden that has possibly seen better days this property has so far struggled to sell.

However, this property's flaws shouldn't deter potential buyers as there is a lot of scope for the new owners to really put their own stamp on the place. 

First listed: October 2018

This Is Wiltshire:

Stafford Street, Old Town, SN1


This mid-terrace townhouse is located in the sought after area of Swindon Old Town. 

The three-bedroom home has a unique design and decoration which would lend itself to some modernisation. 

Boasting a south facing garden the property does not have any private parking or external storage. 

First listed: December 2018

This Is Wiltshire:

Ashlar Court, Marlborough Road, SN3


Situated in what is described as a modern and popular development, this two-bedroom flat has nearly been on the market for two years. 

The property is offered with no onward chain and even has sheltered parking for two cars.

Boasting well-proportioned, modern rooms throughout it is unclear why this flat hasn't sold.
