You have gotten some good advise here. It is a buyer's market in West Virginia. If I were you, I would talk to several Realtors in your area, explain your situation to them. Have them prepare a market analysis so you can see what similar houses in your area are selling for. In this market your house has to be at the top of the available list in price or for some other reason. If you make sure it is, your house will sell. Good luck!
If your house is not selling then ask your Realtor to do another market analysis for you so you can see what the other houses in your neighborhood are selling for. If you find that they are selling for less than what you have it on the market for then I would suggest lowering the price. I always review the market with my clients every 90 days if it has not sold so they are educated on what is happening in their area. This is a changing market and we have to change with it. No "good" buyers agent will let their clients over pay for a house, not to mention the bank will not approve a sale on a house if it does not appraise for the selling price.
If you cannot lower the price and you have to sell because you cannot afford the home anymore you may want to discuss what are your options with your Realtor.
If you no longer have a Realtor I can recommend one in your area that is a good resource, and a good friend.
All the best, Coni Otto
The fact is that homes are selling. The problem is that yours is not. This is a common problem.
When there are many homes for sale, the homes that project the most value always sell, leaving the rest to languish. If you are serious, then you need to know that what you paid, how much you owe, or how much you invested does not matter to buyers.
ANY house will sell at the right price, with the right preparation , and the right marketing. If you are serious, I might be able to refer you to a local expert that knows the local market trends and can really do the job.
