Two months is not that long to be on the market, so I wouldn't panic just yet.
Possibly the staging or curb appeal needs some work.
Check your price vs. the ones that are selling and see if you are in the same ballpark.
Good Luck!... more
Look at your credit reports closely. Do you only have one open trade line? You may want to open another revolving trade line if you only have one. Many factors can hold your score(s) down. Too many inquiries. Not enough trade lines. Or not a healthy mixture of different trade lines. If a broker pulled your credit, read the factors for each score. There are typically 4 factors given as to why your score is what it is.

Builders are not going to typically reduce their base price for anybody. Your Realtor can negotiate possibly getting the builder to throw in some free upgrades or perhaps closing costs, things of that nature.

Pin down your comps better. But if the comps really are at $172,000 (same condition of home, same size, same age), then anything under $172,000 would be OK. The lower you go, the less likely your offer is to be accepted, but it's anyone's guess what might be accepted. $160,000? $165,000? $169,000? But, really, the question comes down to: How much is the home really worth?... more
