I hear that putting in an ice maker and cutting the price to 50% of the last sale will do the trick even if you sell FSBO.

Wow! Roberto you nailed that right on the head.  As a the home owner you could sell it yourself in 30 days for 10% of the market but you should certainly contact a trusted, local agent who will work hard to get the best price.  It sounds easy to sell your house on your own but when you get into a situation like Roberto mentioned you wish you had a professional agent who can handle all those specific details.

Bottom line is to sell a house in 30 days you are not going to get top dollar. Ever think of renting? Most areas have a strong rental market now and you could probably rent the house in 30 days or less.  Wait out the market and sell for more money.

step one: hire a competent agent.
step two: price your home at 50% of the market value.
step three: collect literally hundreds of offers.
step four: send a multiple counter offer to every offer, either at a price you will take, or asking for 'highest and best"
step five: in multiple counter offer, require 10% earnest money, non refundable if closing is missed due to loan contingency. [weeds out all weak offers]
step six: in multiple counter offer, eliminate inspection contingency, encourage all offerors to see the home again, and completely satisfy themselves before writing the new offer, send them your seller property disclousres and HOA disclosures at this time as well.
step seven, among all the replies, select a STRONG offer, i.e. all cash, or if financed, squeaky strong.
step 8: close the deal, likely at only a reasonable discount to the best price you could have gotten anyways.

First of all, get yourself an experienced agent, well known in your area.
Meet with him or her and tell them that you need to sell the property in 30 ddays.  That agent will show you the comparable sales and days on market in your local area.  At that point he or she will recommend a price that will work for your needs.  Also, may want you to stage, paint clean up or clean out depending upon the condition of your home.

If the activity level is lower than expected, reduce until an offer comes in...

I'd recommend:

a.  Using an agent who can read and comply with details such as Zillow's Good Neighbor policy. 

b.  Pricing the house at 50% of market.
