No, do not take it off the market. Serious buyers are looking over the holidays, and you have fewer homes competing with yours.
Five months is way too long.
Disclaimer - I don't know your market.
How many homes, like yours, have sold in the last five months?
Buyers are looking for value. One of your Realtor's jobs is to expose the property to the market, the other is to help you project VALUE to buyers and their Realtors. About 90% of the time the buyer that sees your home sees is it with a Realtor. So, you need to convince Realtors that your home is worth showing.
Look at five homes with which you are competing. How do you stack up? Can you look at homes that are in escrow that were competition? What did they have you did not? Buyers simply want the best value. what can you do?
1. Lower the price
2. Offer a buy down program to make the mortgage payments more affordable.
3. Offer to help with closing costs
4. Include appliances or other extras
Homes that sell in the first thirty days sell closest to asking price. The longer the home sits, the lower the offers. Time is not on your side. Please discuss with your Realtor today.
