I think you should re-list, if you really want to move. I know that always having your house in a constant "ready to show" state can be taxing but if you are ready to find something new, there's no time like the present.
Are you using a realtor? Are you happy with your realtor? Did you choose a realtor because they are related to you or are a friend? Does your agent work with a team that includes stagers and experts in your neighborhood? Sometimes, things need to be done to your home to make sure it shows well and is priced to sell. Those adjustments can be a bitter pill to swallow.
I personally believe in having a slick marketing package for any home and being sure that that home gets in front of as many eyes as possible through open houses and caravans (I do at least one a month, more like one every 3 weeks), flyer boxes (keep them full), special events at your home (invite the neighbors and everyone you know), an aggressive e-mail campaign and a good network of agents behind your listing (making sure your home is listed with an agent or agent team that's tied to a much larger company).
As far as waiting until next year... who knows? Noone has a crystal ball to see what will happen. Some say we are at the bottom of the housing market now, some say prices will continue to fall... so then what. If that's the case, does that mean that you'll have to offer your home for even less next year? Noone really knows.
What we do know is the here and now. You probably will have to offer your home for less than you want.
But you will most definitely do well on the buying side.
And, that sort of trade off is what you are going to find at any time.
When the market recovers, you're going to do better on the sale of your home but not so good on buying the next one.
I love this job!!
Good Luck! I hope I was able to impart some useful advice.
