Unfortunately this is a problem that almost everyone is experiencing at this time. I would recommend what a great REALTOR in Rocky Mount, Virginia, Betty Kingery founder of Mountain to Lake Realty, told me when I first started out. She said, in the past market, the "name of the game used to be 'location, location, location,' but in todays market we're into 'location, price, curb appeal, and closing costs.'" In other words, have a great location, lower your price to stand out in an over-crowded marketplace, do some yard work, and offer something like paying up to $4000 in closing costs. This stuff isn't easy, but this is how people are selling houses in this market. I hope that helped.
