Northwest Cary real estate has really picked up this spring. Cary Park is a great neighborhood and does sell if priced well and if you don't have any real negatives like backing to the main road or a small backyard, etc.

8 months is a long time to be on the market in Cary. You may want to take it off for 30 days and give the home a fresh start.

All sellers have interest but no offers until they get an offer. If you still want to sell the house work with your Realtor. If you don’t want to sell it why have you left it on the market so long?

Discuss this with your listing agent. Perhaps a price reduction is in order. If you have had 7 showings in 1 week you are getting great activity so your listing agent should be able to advise you on what needs done to get an offer on the table.

This is the Spring Market, hens the 7 showings! This is the BUSIEST time for for real estate transactions! Consider re-pricing, staging whatever it takes to get an offer in this time period.

The number 1 reason a home does not sell is due to inaccurate pricing. Ask your agent to pull recent comps and adjust your price accordingly.

What is your agent advising; what kind of feedback are you receiving; if in fact the home has been on the market for 8 months with no offers, review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests and adjust accordingly in order to be as competitive as possible. Keep in mind that a home is worth what someone is willing to pay for it; it doesn’t matter what the seller needs or potential buyers can afford to spend; market conditions do matter as does the immediacy for a transaction to take place. In addition review marketing strategies, does it maximize your exposure, if not adjust accordingly. Also make sure the property shows well at all times, is easily accessible, is neat, clean, clutter free, and don't forget the exterior for curb appeal.
