Help the community by answering this question:


Is the property listed with an agent, if so what is he/she suggesting. Does the property show well at all times, is it easily accessible for showings, etc. Begin by reviewing comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests as to pricing--if it needs adjusting, lower accordingly; be as competitive as possible. Review your marketing strategies, does it maximize your exposure....as to renting, a decision only you can make based on your financials...

This can be normal depending on your market and price range. However, a well prepared and priced home should sell in 90 days or less. I would ask your agent to provide you with a current market value analysis to make sure you are at the right price point. And make sure that your home is staged and photographed to show it's best and that you have great internet marketing. Easily tested by putting your street number and name into the Google search engine. Do you see at least three pages of references?
