Your home is priced right, looks great in both MLS systems and is already accessible to investors. But cash investors typically pay no more than the low 200s. Also, your neighborhood may have rent restrictions that limit investor activity and that is a good thing IMHO. I think a sale will soon come along.
Full disclosure. I am an agent with the brokerage that is handling the sale, but I don't know your agent.
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any home. Especially in the minds of buyers, so making updates in this room is typically a good investment. Consider taking the time and spending extra money in the kitchen where needed. For example replacing old, warn out counter tops with granite counters is an excellent upgrade to make. Having beautiful new granite counter tops in the kitchen will appeal to a wide range of buyers.

I have sold many Ryland homes. Do you need the assistance of a buyers agent to scope out the area and negotiate a good deal and terms for you ? On-site agents represent the builder those agents do not have a license.

The seller is not required to do any repairs unless that were specifically requested and agreed to in the Purchase Contract or Addendum. If you did a Home Inspection or an Appraisal was done by the Lender and the Appraiser and listed the repairs as "Lender Required", then those repairs have to be completed in order for you to finance FHA.
But remember, the seller is not in any way obligated to pay for those repairs again unless they were requested upfront. It sounds like there was some misunderstanding between the Agents the seller did the repairs thinking they could cover the repairs through escrow by raising the sale price. If the Agents can't resolve this, you'll need to consult with an RE Attorney and see what you options are.
There are grants available to help home buyers with their down payments and you'll find lots of information on that at the link below. Lenders typically coordinate with program administrators to help home buyers obtain down payment assistance. Some of those loans are forgiven at the closing table, others forgiven over a few years while still others are there until repaid. All of the ones familiar to me, however, are soft second mortgages. No payments are due, nor due they accrue interest.
