Too quiet! 10 days and nothing happening!
Hi, I am new to posting here although Ive been a lurker for quite a while.
We just recently (10 days ago) listed a house and now I am very worried. We had absolutely nobody interested!!! We are purchasing another house (closing in 3 weeks) and while we can afford to not sell this for a few months, I donÂt want to stretch it for too long. Our problem is several foreclosures in our subdivision which drove the prices way down. My house is one of the nicer ones, very good location on the cul-de-sac. It was upgraded and I hope it would appeal to the buyers, if they only gave it a chance and looked at it. It is priced higher than the foreclosures, but I am not willing to give it away. There was one home very close, a little smaller (3 bdrms) but with beautiful yard that sold $5000 less than we are asking, about 1 month ago. There is another one asking about the same but I feel it is in the worse location and not as nice as ours. The rest of them are all foreclosures in need of upgrades, but also in worse location (on the main street).
I am getting really upset because it feels like nothing at all is going to happen. Our realtor did not even put a sign at the corner of the cul-de-sac to indicate the location of the "House for Sale." Should we have an Open House? I know that they donÂt usually bring buyers, but I just want it to feel like the house is being looked at.
Could you please look at my listing and criticize? What would help to create some traffic?
