If you have yet to find a buyer, it's important to take a step back and assess exactly why your property isn't selling. A few questions to ask your agent include:
Since the day you listed, what homes have accepted offers, how many days did it take, and what price were they asking?
Is your place listed on your local multiple listing service?
How does your listing look compared with the places priced similarly?

Here are some reasons homes will sometimes have little activity:
Unreasonable price -- The toughest pill to swallow, but from time to time this is the problem.
First Impression -- Let's face it: a few residences are not attractive when you first gaze upon them.
Photos -- If your listing has yet to sell, you may want to revisit the photos you’re using to present it on the MLS.
Location -- Every location has a buyer, but once in a blue moon it takes a while to find THAT buyer
