Selling a home in this market is a very challenging situation.,
The success of selling a home is tied to 3 basic factors.
1) Condition of the home. This is something you can control. Have you & your agent done a survey of what needs to be done to sell your home. Are there problems that can be adrressed. Just one tip-Buyers have a tendency to overinflate what the cost of a repair will be. Therefore, having the repair made to sell the property will very often result in a higher net number than if you let the Buyer make the repairs & adjust the price accordingly.
2) Price of the home. Are you priced competitive to the priceof the RECENTLY SOLD homes in your neighborhood. Buyers don't care what you paid for the hoem. Don't care what you have invested in home. Want to know are you priced competitely in today's market. Have you & your agent updated market conditions in the past 30 days?
3) Marketing of your home. Do you feel that the Listing agent has made the right steps. Do you have a presnce on the web.
Only you can answer these questions.
