A "seller's" home inspection will help your home stand out from all the others on the market - as long as any needed repairs are completed. You can have the inspection reports printed and laying on the counter available for all potential buyers. My reports are electronic, and you or your agent could also email the report to interested buyers. The inspection report will show your home is 'Move-In Ready' and can even make the negotiations smoother once you are under contract to sell.
Good luck with the sale!

If you can have your agent pull homes that have sold that were direct competitors that may give you a good idea. If some of them are pending see if you can go and see them for yourself. Until they purchase closes you will not know the exact sales price perhaps but you may be able to see if the homes were actually a better value. Just looking at MLS data is not always enough... you need to go and see the properties. That is why I will often take my listing clients to see 2 or 3 homes I feel will be their direct competition. Go take a look out there and at least then you will know if your home is priced correctly.
Good luck to you!

What happened in your situation? Did you ever get an offer? Best of luck to you and if you need further assistance please contact me directly.
If you live in a desirable area and the condition of the estate is up to pair with your local market. It could only be price and or location. I recommend contacting your agent and request to be shown other comparable estates in your area. I mean actually walk through, no need to go crazy just walk through a couple. See how they compare to yours. This will help you assess your competition then sit down and figure out if your price accurately. I know youâ€™re under representation already however I'm always down to help someone in need let me know if you have any other questions.

Ps. Do you see your agent doing their job?
People want to see something is going on, a find that a POD in front of the house creates a HUGE buzz, even if you don't need it hahahaha. Your neighbors start the buzz and it flows throughout the area!
Spice it up a little and let me know if you need anymore advice, its free :)
Sometimes we don't get honest answers from the buyers. Speak to the Buyer Agents who will be more forthcoming. Your listing agent actuall should be doing this for you so you know what people are thinking. Since I don't know the particular home, I can't assume it's anything more then price. This market is all about price. Homes that are priced 10-15% below their competition normall sell.

I might add to the already great answers you have received, to have your Realtor pull the statistics from CSS (Centralized Showing Service) on homes in your area and price range. You might see that all homes similar to yours are seeing a slow down in showings. Or you might see that they are showing more, which would definitely mean you might have a problem. I recently had a listing that initially had 10 showings the first week it was on the market. Then it slowly trickled down to 1 showing a week. My sellers were concerned so I pulled the CSS statistics and showed them that it wasn't just them. Showings picked up about a week and half later and we contracted and closed on it shortly thereafter. Hopefully this is what has happened to you! Good luck!!

Once again, best wishes!
I am on board with Don however every market is different. 55 days ago there were not as many new inventory spec homes ready for move in as there are on the market now. Buyers are comparing the price of pre-owned homes versus brand new and all the warranties that come with it. One thing that might prove as an incentive, instead of dropping the price, maybe you could offer to help pay closing costs? Buyers in certain budget ranges need help in paying cash out of pocket. Your Realtor could also offer a Realtor bonus if Buyer closes in say, 45 days from the date you offer the bonus. If the home was ever appraised for an FHA loan, once that happens, the appraisal stays with the property for 6 months. This impacts the amount a bank will finance for your property.
Have you had an inspection done? Sometimes Buyers are motivated to know the Seller has already had an inspection done and you can post the results on the MLS. The Buyer will gain a sense of security when knowing the home has had a 12 point inspection done recently.
I hope you start to get Buyers again. I am seeing in Keller, Haslet, Southlake and Colleyville homes that are selling pretty quickly so I let my Buyers know, if you like it,. make an offer!
Best wishes to you Jen!
