Thanks Bill, sometimes the best advice is really simple. I'm not sure about the realtor's advice--"drop the price after the election"--is that real advice? LOL. Maybe drop the price the next time it rains. Good Luck ... more

Hi Jocelyn,
I'm a local realtor in your area and I have been finding that there are still buyers in your price range. The problem is the stiff competition out there. Buyers are looking for the deal of the century and are very savvy to the local market. Just think for a moment. If you had a good offer today and it was below your asking price, would you take it? If your answer is yes, then you should lower your price. Don't miss that window of opportunity. By lowering your price, you fall into a different search criteria ($250K-$300) which will generate more activity. I'm sure your home will sell, it looks lovely. Patience is the key in this market. ... more

Hello Jocelyn- What price range are we talking here? Is this something that a first time homebuyer could afford? If you have a decent amount of equity into it, you also may want to consider offering / marketing the house with "some" level of owner financing available. That sometimes will get you some interest from the buyers on the edge of qualifying for conventional financing. Banks are just getting tougher every week!
If I can be of any help, please let me know. Thanks and Good luck,
Ken L.
