Uggggh, house update

This is the "bad news" edition of my "how not to sell a house" saga.
From my realtor ( about this weekend's open house results:
"I had a total of 5 guests visit your house yesterday during the open house.  3 of those guests were neighbors (not from the culdesac).  Obviously the neighbors were just curious.  1 of the 2 would not say a word.  The other individual is working with Long and Foster, and saw the ad in the Washington Post.  She said the house was very nice, but did not give any other indication of interest.
The biggest concern that I have at this moment is that in 2 weeks, only 1 Realtor has shown the house.  It's a combination of the time of year and the current market conditions.  I think we are priced appropriately, but it's a tough market right now."
So the good news (there is some?) is that the house has only been on the market for 2 weeks, so there's no need to panic. Yet.
The bad news is what is above. 2 weeks. 2 realtors.
And the online tour views ( are starting to slow down a little.
I set a longer timeline view of the option of renting the house. But that would be if the house is on the market for 4 or 5 months. Which puts me into March, which is when the real estate market starts to heat up...
