How long do you plan on staying at that price before you make another $2,000 drop? And then another? And another? If you will make 3 or 4 of those drops, why not make it entire drop now, so people searching will see it? It sounds like no matter what, you have to sell it. Wouldnt you rather sooner than later?
Wasn’t my call. I was fortunate to get a price drop at all. I wanted $10k. My “wife” told the realtor if it drops another penny she won’t sign off. As I alluded to this situation is awful. My hands are cuffed and I’m losing my mind...should have professional photos this week though

I wish they would...

Pro photos certainly can't hurt. Good luck and hang in there. I don't envy you your situation with the "other party" involved in this sale.

The thing I don't particularly is the carpet with very light walls. It's too much "bright" IMO.

OP, your house is beautiful. If it was here in Chicago I would buy it in a heartbeat..lol
But if it was here in my neighborhood it would cost a whole lot more than 300k...
Here, a house at that price range gets you as small bungalow zipcode 60630

Thanks everyone for the responses. Sorry I’ve been MIA, things at home kinda went to hell this weekend. Thankfully have another showing today though. Maybe they’ll be the ones.

There’s a couple from Chicago who is currently most interested in our home. Trying to get more info on when they’re looking to purchase

Sorry this is happening to you. A year from now it will all be over with and the house sale drama will be a distant memory. Good luck!

When my daughter's house sold in Farragut....you know, the house without the bonus room all the other lookers wanted....it was to a buyer who was relocating from Pennsylvania for a new job and was in TN on a house hunting weekend. You might have more luck with buyers from states that don't have as much new development. They are more used to older housing stock and come to Tennessee thrilled at what they can get for their money. Good luck!

Spotless home and nicely put together. I looked at all 3 of the listings you showed but the one thing that blew me out of the game (if I were a buyer) was the video walk through. If your home is 2400 sq ft it didn't look anyway near that. It looked extremely small and cramped in that video. I didn't feel that way with the photos I saw before that.

I also thought your house lacked any color. Nothing to catch my eye or remember. Even the throws were vanilla and everything blended in. Not a memorable house if I am looking a several at a time.

4 bedrooms --one must not have a closet? since one listing said 3 plus a den that could be a 4th bedroom.

Lead with family friendly words, the 3 car garage (which means storage to buyers), are schools close by, shopping.

Something needs to express your need to move- NOW. You need to be the lowest price in your neighborhood and represent the most value to buyers. If that means dropping your price, then drop your price. Or, put Seller Relocating in the ads. That should strike some buyers to move. They think they will get a deal.

Best of luck!
