If my house has been on the market for a year with more than 6 significant price reductions, is it time to change realtors, price again or both?
All of the above but it doesn't mean another price reduction. Have fresh eyes look at the house. Get their opinion of value, staging and condition and go from there.

Home lender is letting me assume the mortage on my deceased moms home. Best way to do it has a 9.5% interest and needs repairs that I would like to do
I think the 203K loan will give you the most flexibility. Definitely speak to your accountant though about any and all tax benefits to assuming the 9.5% mortgage.
