Is it time to pull it off the market? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-am-I-getting-no-showings-Is-it-time-to-pull-it-off-the-market/355552/ My house has been on the market for 2 months and is both larger and in MUCH better shape than any of the comp houses in the area.&nbsp; It has a ton of updates and my realtor said it is in perfect condition.&nbsp; We have already dropped the price 3 times (totaling 12%) and we have only gotten 2 showing total since it was put on the market. We also had a broker open house, after the 1st price reduction, where everyone that attended thought our pricing and the condition of the house was great. We are asking far less than the tax value and if we drop the price much more there will be no point in selling.&nbsp;&nbsp; My realtor is at a loss as to why no one is looking and so are we.&nbsp; Is it worth it to keep trying or is it time to just pull it off the market?&nbsp; We are currently priced less per sq. foot than any other house in the neighborhood.<br \><br \>10 replies Mon, 28 Jun 2010 16:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-am-I-getting-no-showings-Is-it-time-to-pull-it-off-the-market/355552/ 2010-06-28T16:47:00Z valid url http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/valid-url/552283/ 2 replies Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/valid-url/552283/ 2014-07-30T19:53:00Z Should I be worried? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-I-be-worried/551912/ We're at about day 27 now of having our house on the market and still no offers.&nbsp; We've had probably 30 showings plus an open house where about 9 additional families came through.&nbsp; There's been 5 second showings. Everyone is saying it shows well.&nbsp; Our main issues have been the lack of bonus room, the small backyard and how far back we are in the neighborhood.&nbsp; We close on our new home this friday so we really need to get this house sold!&nbsp; I'm wondering if I should start to worry that we just won't get an offer.&nbsp; It seems like houses in our section either sell right away or never sell.&nbsp; There's one down the street right now that just hit the one year mark.&nbsp; I will give this house away before that happens.&nbsp; Thoughts?<br \><br \>4 replies Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-I-be-worried/551912/ 2014-07-29T00:47:00Z I can't find my listing that was published yesterday.
