My wife and I had our home on the market with an agent for 3 months without any luck. When we took it off the market with the agent, we decided to try to sell it ourselves. We put an ad in the paper saying that we were willing to do a L/O. We got tons of calls.
We told everyone that called that we were trying to sell the house but would L/O if we had to. Some said they only wanted to L/O, but others said they would love to buy but didn’t think they had the credit to do so. Well, we got an application from our mortgage guy and had everyone who was interested fill it out. The second person we sent him, qualified ! They never looked at buying a home because they thought they had to put down alot of money and their credit wasn’t that great. Well we applied some of the creative techniques that we had learned, and low and behold we closed !
We only had the ad in the paper for one weekend !! I’m not sure if it would work for you, but it never hurts to try !
