Price the home correctly - based on condition, repairs needed, upgrades done and market value of the area.
Market the home properly - great well lit pictures, accurate description and data, and mass internet visibility to capture both local and relocating buyers.
If the marketing is off or the price is wrong, it will cause problems for you. Good Luck
Is it priced competitively for the area? How did you price it? Have comparable homes solid in the last year? How is the condition? What is the main issue you see if you had bought your own home today?

now do in addition what has already been done in the past year. If on the other hand you have tried to
sell on your own, then may be this is the time to connect with an experienced Realtor in your area, someone who will be honest and straightforward with you and put all the numbers concerning recently sold homes like yours, and those currently on the market in front of you, and even show you a few similar to yours.
Is yours the only one with a pool, then that may be a reason.....
On the other hand it may just be the style, or the location it can be anything, most of all remember
we are in a buyers market in most if not all areas of the US, meaning that there are more homes available than there are ready and willing and approved buyers, i.e. serious buyers. The buyer can
look at homes on the internet and then work with their buyers agent to see only the ones that fit their needs, their pocket book and the locations they prefer. Nothing much YOU the Seller can do about, after all your home is where it is and what it is..... the only thing you can do is, adjust the
price is that could be a reason to get more interest, or do a little staging, give some walls some
new en vogue color coat of paint, and if the curb appeal is not too exciting then make it exciting,
by adding landscaping or flowering pots etc., but a local Realtor will be able to put all the plus and
minus of your home compared to your market area in front of you, and also the possible choices you have to put your home into a better, more competitive situation. For us, not seeing your home,
its location, etc. etc. it is hard to make concrete suggestions.
Also please bear in mind depending on the price range there may be less buyers in that price range, and in today's market it is not unusual for some homes to be on the market for a year and
some 2 years + if the sellers need a certain final sale price to move on.
Good Luck to you..

Price, location, appeal, and visibility are four very important factors in selling. It may be time for you to sit down with your agent and have them provide you with their understanding of why the home hasn't sold and what their recommendations are to obtain offers.
Very basic real estate guidelines: no showings....lower the price. showings but no offers.....lower the price, offers but none acceptable, lower the price........
