The MidCoast has been dominated over the past 2 years by homes under $150,000. We have started to see a lot of buyers over the past couple of months buying homes in different price ranges. As you know, the MidCoast usually starts to see an influx of tourists from the 4th of July through the Labor Day holiday. That will be your best opportunity to sell you home.
Do you get feedback from your agent on the showings that have occurred? That feedback is essential. That potential buyer took the time to look at your home and they formed an opinion to not pursue purchasing it. The feedback would allow you to make modifications that may make it more desirable to the next potential buyer.

I have some listings that have sat for over 6 months, but I listed a house on thursday that went under contract on saturday. The buyers are out there, but there is a lot of inventory for them to choose from. The more you can showcase and market your house - and make sure it is competitively priced - the better your chances of selling.
