The bottom line answer to your question depends on which MLS system you are in, so answers from other parts of the country are worthless.
Rick DeVoss, with The Michael Group
Instead of trying to make it new again you should focus on pricing the home correctly and preparing it to show in the best possible way. Nobody is fooled by the days on the market. I took over a listing that was on the market for over 150 days with another broker.
When I took the listing ti was honest with them about the price ranges their home would need to be i to attract an offer. I even took them to view the competition and that was an eye opener for them. Fortunately they were in a position to price the home correctly and we received a successful purchase offer in less than 14 days after putting the home back on the market.
Pricing trumps everything. Everybody, and I mean everybody, wants a deal. If you are moving up or to another location price your home right, sell it and move on. Then take advantage of the market with the purchase of your next home.
I understand that can be hard to do... I even have similar issues when I sell my own properties but you need to understand that we do not dictate a homes value, the market does.
Good luck with your sale.
