Selling one's home is an emotional experience. It's not just the physical building itself you are selling but the feelings and memories which come with it. It is, after all, your HOME, where your heart and family reside. When selling, however, one must put that aside and go with the FACTS; is your home as well-maintained as others in your community which have sold? Does it have the same upgrades? Does it contain any extras such as an additional garage, fireplace, deck, etc.? It must be compared with homes as similar as possible for appropriate pricing. And finally, as painful as this reality is to sellers, your home's VALUE is what someone is willing to pay for it!

Selling a home during a winter like this year is challenging. So is factoring in the holidays. But, if it has been on the market for 60 days without an offer, it's time for a price reduction. Let your agent (or if you are selling on your own, the price which similar homes in your community have sold for, guide you. Sometimes even a small reduction in price will bring fence-sitting buyers who loved everything BUT the price, off the fence to you with an offer.

Good luck!
