I think many folks can't see past the "what's there" to the "what it can be". Such things as color, for instance, can easily be changed, but people don't buy the house because of the color of one room. Even the window treatments (drapery, blinds, etc.) can be a turn-off to some.

Eleven years ago we sold our ranch house on Long Island because my husband lost his job and the only other job he could find was out of state. Our house was worth 600,000 but we sold it to a young couple for 560,000 because we had to relocate right away.
That 40,000 reduction in price gave this young couple the opportunity to buy a house in the best neighborhood in that town. They were thrilled because they would also be living not too far from her parents.
The husband, a terrific young man, was most impressed with the new oil burner system that we had installed. It was german made and no one had anything like it. The house was in fantastic condition and well made.
So, you never know what might appeal to someone. Price? Location?
Closeness to family?
There is a buyer for every house. It just takes time.
