That is a great question.
If your home is not receiving the proper amount of attention, there are many factors involved.
#1. is local market a buyer or seller market?
#2. What is the volume of like kind sales?
#3. Where is the like kind sales occuring?
#4. Where are sales at your price point occuring?
#5. What distinquishes these homes from yours?
Based on the above data, you can determine what the value bracket of your home should be and the time interval required to complete the sale.
As you have noticed and reflected in your comment, ready and able buyers (in a seller market) have grown weary of chasing ficticious homes for sale and vapors of home sold long ago that is exhibited on internet sites. They really are looking for homes that represent a high aviliablitity and likelihood of closing.
Assess the issues and 1-5 require and make the changes needed. There is no amount of advertising that will sell your home. A proper strategy, correct pricing and data supported expectation are the essential ingredients.

Best of success,

I would confirm you are actually "priced to sell" If I have a listing that is properly advertised on the Internet, and it has good photos, and showing requirements make it easy for an agent to show a client, then I usually start looking at price if there is no foot traffic through the house.

Your agent needs to pull the sold comparables from the last 3 months for homes within 1 mile of your property and look really hard at what homes similar to yours sold for. Sounds like you might be too high.

Hi Stanmay,
You cannot really put a time line on the selling of your home, nut to try and help you in the marketing I would suggest and open house for the public and possibly a brokers open. you could also ask to see the listing as it is on the MLS as it may not have enough info or good pics featuring the space. There could be alot of factors in the home not selling including price, staging and most importantly location. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.
