K. Shaughnessy, It sounds as if you have a lovely home on the market. Unfortunately, when we have a house on the market, we agents can't depend, verbatim, on the words of the Realtors who showed it. You, as a Seller can only depend on your Listing agent's interpretation of the activity. For example, a guideline I use, is, if I have had 12 showings on my listing and no offers, that means I am close enough in price for what the property has to offer, to get showings, but not competitive enough to generate a purchase and sale agreement. Real Estate is subject to supply and demand, just like any other product. Right now there is a large supply of inventory and the game you're playing now is to stay ahead of the curve by getting your agent's advise based on the activity. The quicker you move to stay ahead of the market, the more money you'll put in your pocket.
