I understand your frustration; it's tough when a Seller isn't getting offers on their house.
Is your house listed with a Realtor or are you trying to sell on your own? If you are listed with a Realtor and in the local MLS, your prospective buyers should have been prequalified by their agent, and they're probably legit buyers. If your condition and location are good and you're not getting offers - price is usually the issue.
If you're trying to sell on your own and not receiving any offers, it may very well be a marketing/lack of exposure problem; the qualified buyers don't know about your house. It's becoming quite difficult to sell by owner in this type of market without using a professional. The vast majority of "buyers" who contact a by owner are NOT qualified to purchase for a variety of reasons. And again, price is usually key and has to be thoroughly evaluated by a professional with a track record in your area.
Buyers use comparison shopping when purchasing a home. Thereâ€™s a lot to choose from in most markets AND houses are still selling.
If you are trying to sell by owner and want some ideas on how to get it done, just call me; Iâ€™m selling properties in the Milwaukie area on a regular basis. If you're with an agent, discuss what they're doing to market your property and have them give you an updated CMA - based upon this market; not last years...
Best of luck!
