Alternatives to selling a home in a slow market?

My wife and I moved to a new city 3 yrs ago for my new job. I am now able to work completely remote and we would like to move back to our home town, but the realestate market here is very poor. We really can't think about a new home untill we feel confident ours will sell. Any one have any alternates to listing and selling the home? Its been on the market for almost 4 months now. Bridge loans do not look like that good of an idea, but any opinions on these? Thanks in advance.

You have the wrong real estate agent. How long did you sign your listing for 180 days? You should have signed a 60 day lease with a 30 day roll period if you were pleased the agent was doing all in his power to sell the property. Never give more than 60 days... More

sometimes the realtor will buy it. If your home isn't too far away you could always rent this onr out or sell it on a rent-to-own basis

Most markets are slow right now. Isn't it possible to drop your asking price and then low-ball the house you want in the next town? Those owners are in the same boat as you.

When in Doubt, RENT IT OUT!!! Put the rent money towards equity in the home, which will make a GREAT credit score. Also, a good savings plan, and nest egg, with little to no work. Its a risk, but the reward far out weighs it.
