SELLING your home can be stressful at the best of times, let alone if it's been on the market for years. 

There are lots of possible reasons that a property doesn’t sell, such as being in ill-repair or being overpriced.

According to home and lifestyle website The Spruce, potential buyers are mainly looking for a good location, space and future potential. 

However, there might not be anything necessarily wrong with a property and the lack of interest can be down to poor marketing, the Money Saving Expert has a range of tips and tricks on choosing the best estate agent. 


Whatever the reason, here are the homes in Gwent that just haven’t got any takers:
