Price like this typically enhances the QTY of buyers to your home. As you will find amoung most web searches home pricing is set in increments (ie 250,000-300,000 or 275,000-325,000). So in turn if Homes are priced on the 000's 25's or 50's you will get searchers who either end or begin at those searches. I find 000's usually attract the most buyers. So that being said I woulld ask your agent for an updated CMA. If you feel the range pricing is "scaring" people away I would try to just keep it at 300K w/out the tag line seller's will entertain offers between 300 and 315k, before reducing the list price further.

There are many factors effecting a property's saleablility ...price and terms being the most important.
This time of year always brings fewer buyers with more buyers writing offers "after the holidays". Also, typically a property on a "busy street" would have less interested buyers and sell for less than a comparable property in a neighborhood setting. Some buyers are "turned off" buy an asking price of say..$300,000 with offers being entertained between $300,000 to $315,000. Some buyers feel its a "gimmick". I suggest sellers look closely at their competition when choosing a listing price for their property.

How does your property compare to the competition? 41 days is a relatively short time on the market. Is the busy road a point of negative feedback? Average market time for single family home sales over the past 6 months is 120+ days in your market. As far as value range pricing, I don't think that would prevent an offer from an interested buyer. I would focus on how your price stacks up with competition and discuss with your Realtor. Average price usually equals average market time.
