Your home is in a central/north location that will appeal to buyers. You need to do your homework: go look at your competition, what are they doing that catches YOUR eye? Hire a Realtor to help you market , stage your home, price it right and you will find a buyer. You don't need 100 buyers, only one that is approved and ready to move. I wish you luck on the sale of your home. Please call me if I may be of assistance.
Your home has a lot of advantages in that area. You're priced below the market average both list price and price per square foot, you have one of the smaller homes in the area which is good for people that want to get into that neighborhood, the online pictures look great, you have an updated kitchen, and you back to greenspace. All in all, while things have slowed down a bit in Austin, you have a really nice house in a very good area. Being on the market for only 6 days, I wouldn't be too concerned at all at this point.
Having the list of upgrades that you've done since purchasing the home in '05 is great. Your agent also put both the survey and the disclosure online, and the virtual tour pics look great. I do have 3 small nits to recommend. Paint the front door and shutters a more neutral color, paint the wood on the outside of the hot tub something other than bright blue, and consider trashing the storage shed.
Otherwise, looks like a nice property! I do know your listing agent, she'll probably get a kick out of my nits above, but she might agree too!

Austinhouse.net allows you to post up to 8 pictures (4 for free) and you get your own URL address. Then, when a buyer wants to see your home, just email them your home's custom URL address. Hope this helps
One other thing to consider when choosing a REALTOR is how much & what type of marketing they will do for you. More & more people are shopping on the Internet..so that is a type of exposure you should ask about ..along with the more traditional flyers, office tours & mail-outs.
Virtual Tours, searches such as Craig's List & Backpage & Enhanced version of Realtor.com are some that I have found to be effective.
Have the Realtor you choose walk the home with you & help you make a list of what can be done to make the home market ready.
Hope this helps! Linda Graves
