I was reading this morning about a seller complained because they had only two buyer prospects in more than a month. My thought – you missed it.
A real estate listing has a golden period.
The longer a property sits, the less appealing it is to prospective buyers because there is something "wrong!"
I believe that newly listed homes have their "golden period." That is the first few weeks when the new listing "hits the street." The greatest activity will probably happen early on. If you have passed the "golden period," look at your motivation.
Another sign is the 30-10-1 rule. Basically it means if your home is listed for 30 days and has less than 10 showings and not one offer, then the price is an issue. Sure this is a buyer's market but a home that is priced right will get the appropriate attention early on in the process.
