Has your Brookside home been on the market for several months with not many bites? Maybe it's time to bring in a professional stager or decide to either take it off the market for a few months or lower that price!

It's vital to list your home at a price point that will sell it quickly. If buyers see that your home has been on the market for several months, they will either question "why" or offer a "low ball" figure thinking you may be desperate. Have your agent run comparables for homes that are also on the market the same time yours is to see what your competition is. Also, have your agent run comparables for homes that have sold in your area in past months to see how much the seller's have had to come down to get that house sold! The first 30 days your home is on the market is the most crucial.

I live in the coveted 64113 zip code, and I'm having a heck of a time with selling.  We've dropped the price over 20K in the past 50 days........all the comments/feedback are positive.  I wish someone would just be real with me/ what do you think is the reason my home is not selling?
