My wife and I are trying to sell our home and we’re feeling like we are missing something huge.

My wife and I are trying to sell our home and we’re feeling like we are missing something huge.

We live in a subdivision on the outskirts of Augusta, GA. It is a little military town and our neighborhood is only one of two neighborhoods. We put our house on the market 10 days ago. We have tons of viewings on Realtor.com, Zillow, etc., but not one showing. No one has come by to look. This doesn't seem like a big deal normally, but there are other houses on the Markey in our neighborhood (some are the same house plan, some are not) that sold in 3 days.

Our realtor told us in the beginning that we wouldn't be on the market but a few days. "We haven't had a house on the market for a week yet in this subdivision." Well, our home is the first to take this long. Compared to the other houses, we have hardwood floors (vs their carpet), tiled kitchen/bathrooms (vs their laminate flooring), privacy fence, newly pressure washed driveway/patio, offering to leave washer/dryer, etc. This house is only 5 years old, but at this point, it's feeling like we are missing a huge draw somewhere.

As far as asking price, we were appraised at 230k and are asking 229k (hoping that it would bring over asking price). I was sure, in this market, the house would be snatched up by some military family rather quickly, but no such luck. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance!
