Remember! Your home is worth as much as a buyer is willing to pay, despite the fact that all of us as home owners tend to believe our property is simply worth more than it is to the buying public. If the property has been on the market for more than 3 to 4 weeks, with few prospects coming to see it, or those that have seen your home do not make a second or third visit, and no offers have been submitted, you've been given a clear message that the property in the eyes of the informed buyer is not worth the price that you're asking.

If you're not really motivated to move soon, you can always wait - years if necessary - and hope inflation will catch up with the price you want.
