You probably should start by hiring an agent to market your home. Real Estate professionals sell homes for a business and are much more likely to market your home more effectively than you can on your own
Although you say your home is $30,00 below market price, is that below today's market price or below the prices of the market a couple of years ago?
A lot depends on the location and price of house now. Many people are finding it hard to purchase anything over about $150,000, and most of the recent sales have been on homes that were priced under $100,000.
Are you in a position to hold the mortgage yourself? This would perhaps save the buyer the closing cost fees enough to be able to purchase for a higher sales price.
Do you have the house listed in MLS? Statistics state that 85% of the homes sold are listed in a multiple listing service. The MLS give your home greater exposure. The more people who know about your you house the more people are qualified will look at it and more are likely to make an offer.
The Winter Haven market has been slow, but is beginning to pick up some now. Is there anything about your house that would set it apart from the crowd - something that you especially like or that you think is something that a new Buyer would like? Put yourself in the Buyer's shoes. Would you buy your house today (with current economic conditions like they are) in the condition it is in in the neighborhood where it is located and for the price you are asking?
If I knew the location, age, condition, special features, etc. I could tell you more. I lived in winter Haven for 35 years and am familiar with the area, but all of those things are significant in different ways and in differing amounts.
