I would say the first thing to do is to have an open mind about the market. It has changed , so expectations must change as well. I would highly recommend a few options, such as an online market analysis from a real estate professional or even better have a realtor meet with you to look at your home then; the upgrades, maintenance, staging, etc. would be taken into consideration. Even with many property improvements the price can only bear what the market will accept, but a great looking home (priced correctly) will move quickly! Call me if I can assist!
