This is hard. I definitely understand you must be getting pretty anxious. There are several things you need to look at.
- Is your home priced properly to sell quickly (i.e. is it at, or even better, slightly below market value)?
- Is your home staged well (de-cluttered and looks like a model home. Pack what you don't need for the next several months to get it looking neater and more organized)
-Can buyers see your home easily (i.e. is there a lock box, and is it "call first, go direct")
- Is your home being advertised and marketed agressively by your agent? What kind of internet marketing are they doing? What kind of marketing exposure does the company your agent work for give you? (Tell them to look at placing your home on here Trulia.com, as well as Zillow.com and Craigslist.com for free, additional marketing).
These are some of the major things to look at. Hope this helps. Depending on what you are offering for commission to the buyers agent, you may want to consider offering a slightly higher commission - realtors are suffering right now and since there is so much available on the market, they are going to be more motivated to show the homes that are going to get them the highest pay check - sad, I know. If you have Home Owners Association dues, you could offer in the marketing and advertising to pay the first years HOA dues for the buyer.....be creative.
