Should you consider reducing your price? Ask for updates on market activity for properties similar to yours. How long are properties on the market before they sell? What properties have sold since yours has been listed? Ask your agent for input as to how those properties differed from yours?

When you sell your home should be based more on want and need then market conditions. We've sold 3 of our own properties in a down market (one our residence, one former residence/rental at the time, and the third just a rental).
