Selling house with steep driveway
My husband and I are trying to sell our first house and I'm approaching panic mode. It seems like there are a lot of knowledgeable people on this forum, and I was hoping for some advice.
We're selling FSBO and have been on the market three weeks. We've had 15 showings with several second showings and third showings. We got an offer on Day 4 (fell through due to financing) and an offer on Day 9 (were under contract at 96% of the asking price, but the buyer backed out due to personal reasons involving his planned move). Every piece of feedback we've gotten from realtors is that the house shows beautifully, their client loves the house, but the steep driveway is a problem. Our listing is on http://www.carolinahome.com/findahome.aspx
I'm not sure what to do. It seems that the driveway is going to be a real obstacle in selling the house. I don't know if we should wait it out for the person to come along that loves the house so much they don't mind the driveway (that's what happened to us when we bought it), lower the price (by how much to compensate for a steep driveway?) or try something else. I've thought about offering one year of free lawn care so buyers won't have to mow the steep hill, which would cost about $2,000. Any suggestions would be appreciated, we really want to sell this house!
Here is a picture that shows the steep driveway better:
