I don't know where Trulia gets its home valuations but they are pure fiction. Perhaps a bitter former listing agent told you that lie.

Being the "best" house isn't always a good thing. Think about this from a buyer's perspective: If they like your neighborhood, and they can save some cash in exchange for sacrificing a little bit of space, why wouldn't they? If I have 5 houses to choose from, I'm going to want to strike a balance between features and price. I can promise you that I'm almost never going to pick the most expensive house available to me.

Have you had your agent show you what's actually under contract and has sold in your area since you went on the market? The other active listings won't tell you as much as the houses that someone is actively working to buy. How do those houses' conditions and price points fare? How long did it take them to go under contract? Those things can help you assess your market conditions.

I understand your reluctance to lower your price but it doesn't change the fact that your market is telling you that it's not appropriate. That's what limited showings and zero offers means.

Check the elevation in relation to other units. Check the grade/drainage. Look for stains, water marks on wood, walls, cabinets in the basement. Look for date codes on sheet rock. Talk to neighbors on either side if possible. ... more

Hi Christine,

That is a good question! I would say "Yes", because a missing or faulty well cap or seal could cause the well water to become contaminated. I see you are also an agent, so a quick call to the Summit County Health Department would bring a difinitive answer. ... more
