It's all about price in today's market.

If it not a deal you're going to have a difficult time. Here's a suggestion.

This information should provide a clear picture of where your price should br to be able to sell.

If you feel the price is right the leave it, if it is overpriced get it to the lowest priced unit in the complex.
Also, you may be marketing it to the wrong target. Who is buying in your building, where are they coming from, what is the income requirements. Being in W. NY are you marketing it to the NY crowd. Is it being advertised in places like the,, Try not to advertise it in NJ. Most NJ'ers cannot understand the very high maint. fees. The other thought as mentioned before is to pay for the fees for a time period.
Feedback from prospects are important, listen to them and react to it.
Good luck!!!
