I had a seller with a lovely home in the area that was listed for $335,000, higher than I recommended. It was in great condition, but had dated decor and "taste specific" colors. I recommended necessary changes and a price drop-which they finally did. The house went under contract quickly, then.
Clearly, with the abundant choices buyers have in your area and competing areas, your house absolutely "WOW" the buyers. Either the upgrades, the location, the amenities or the price, (or a combination thereof) have to make your home stand out among its competition. You might want to have your agent take you through some of your toughest competition to get ideas.
I am clearly not from your area, but one thing is true no natter where you are..... a home is listed, and at that point, the market will "talk to you"........
only 6 showings in over a month??
Unless your market is dead in the water, with nothing selling, to me, that means you missed the "right" list price and that is holding back the buyers (and their agents). They feel no sense of urgency......they may be questioning the value at the list price if they think it is overpriced...... or, they are questioning YOUR motivations in selling.
No one (agent or buyer) wants to be the reality check for the seller on a relatively new listing.
As far as more specific feedback, some agents don't want to be bothered, or feel that the feedback is between them and their buyers.
You have to deal with what you have.
And, to answer your question - the way one can show "motivation to sell" is with a great price!
This is just a generic opinion from someone far away!
Maybe a local agent will offer you more specific advice.
ps what is your agent advising you to do???

Also, have your Realtor follow up with the buyer's agents for the people who looked and find out if they bought anything else. If so, what and where? They obviously considered what they bought to be a better value than yours. Compare those properties to yours.
If your Realtor hasn't done it yet, ask him to hold a broker's open. That's when other agents visit and tour your property. That's helpful for publicizing the property. But it's also very helpful for getting feedback from them on problems or issues with your house.
Hope that helps.
