The first step is getting your home prepared or "prepped" for viewings by homebuyers. None of us live in our homes the same way we want them to be ready for showings. So, don't take offense, instead start decluttering and cleaning using common sense. Ask yourself when you are out looking for a home, what appeals to you in regard to condition, cleanliness and appearance?
While kitchens and bathrooms are the most carefully scrutinized areas of the the home, even the smallest of details are important. Really good, experienced agents can pretty much tell you what the home is going to be like on the inside before they ever go in. And homebuyers are impacted by the curb appeal and even while they are standing at the front door waiting for their agent to get the lock box open. Are the front porch lights clean and free of cobwebs? Does the door bell button have years of grime build-up that could be cleaned off in thirty seconds with a bottle of Fantastic or 409? If you don't dust off the ledges of the furnace and the top of the hot water heater in the basement, no one will notice. But...if you do, it's another "wow" that the homebuyers will say to each other about how well kept the home is. The smallest of details are important because they can have a cumulative affect.
Ask just about any home seller why their home hasn't sold, and about the best answer they can give you is "It's the market". Most really don't know the true reasons why it hasn't sold. It isn't easy always getting the truth from each party that has viewed the home why they really did not want to buy it. Homebuyers don't want to be offensive with their feedback. There are few agents who can tactfully and artfully get to the bottom of the common thread of the reason(s) a home isn't selling. Have a good discussion with your listing agent about how they are going to accomplish this if the home doesn't sell right away on its own merits.
