The best way to market your home is to make sure the property is viewer ready, not overpriced and a value to an end user. You are competing with all the same priced homes in your area and the new home builders. Think about what makes your property special. You're up against a Buyer's Market and you need to be creative. The Buyers are out looking for that exceptional value to invest their money in. Things to play up in your advertising would be school district, location, landscaping, updating and projection of future home value. What incentives are you willing to give such as: Are you willing to help with closing costs, or pay the title insurance, or is there a boat or a 1 year country club membership that would come with the house.

If all fails do what is the rage here, auction the house off. Alot of realtors are not comfortable with this method yet, but it works! If you decide to go this route, I recommend you buy and read: How To Sell Your Home in 5 Days by Bill Effros. I have used this method and it works. I didn't have to auction the house off because during my open house, I got 34 people to show up and by the end of the day I had 2 offers. The Seller just picked the highest bid which was asking price and when with that offer. Email me back if this method works for you.
