Top 10 things you might be doing that prevent your Fleming Island home from selling. Has your house been on the market for 30 days without a showing? Maybe it's been 3 months, and your Eagle Harbor home still hasn't had that many showings, maybe you're guilty of one, perhaps two or more, of all of the following situations: 1.    You're at every showing, following the buyers around reading off to them every upgrade done to the house, from windows to HVAC system, how to work every appliance, along with a personal demonstration.

Leave for all showings or at...
