Larry provided you real straight talk. You responded 'Absolutely right.'
You are engagings agents from across the country who assist owners and buyers in dozens of transactions a year. Successful agents, intitivly or with full awareness, are on the frontier of human perception. We know how to present a product to the intended audience in the manner that allows them to percieve, through all their senses, "this is the right home!"
Where the wheels come off the wagon is your reference to "THE RIGHT BUYER!"
Help me out. Tell me who is the right buyer?
What attributes of your home presents unique value to this right buyer?
As others have stated, no purchase offers, absolute silience means, YOU ARE OUTSIDE THE VALUE BRACKET OF THOSE SEEING YOUR HOME. Here are your choices:
1. Adjust price to fall with existing buyer value bracket.
2. Market to the RIGHT buyer. You will need to remove the obvious and predictable obstacles such an approach will present. However, the latter will prove INVALUABLE.
You must choose two of the following: fast, cheap or good. You can not have all three.
Best of success to you.

I think I know exactly which house are you talking about, If I'm correct it is not the price of the home that is not right it is the taxes. The Taxes seem to be very high and that could be a reason the house hasnt sold.
Please call me at 908-770-599 to discuss further

Zillow figures can be off over 20%. No automated valuation method can substitute for market data.

It seems that you are looking for someone to be able to tell you a firm number. But, the fact is.......we don't make the market. A Realtor can prepare a CMA, and an appraiser can prepare an appraisal. Nothing, not Zillow's report, the Realtor CMA, or the appraiser's opinon of value determine what a buyer will pay.

The market sets value as a result of the collective activity of all buyers and sellers who are currenty make the market. And, markets are always in flux. There is no magic pill. I wish there were......but there is not.

You can put your property out for sale, but if the exposure is limited, the response is not a true read of the market. Only with true market exposure can you hear what the market says back to you.
