Our 4 homes - selling or not?

Our 4 houses:
1- 2 story maplewood house
2- small city shot gun house
3- 3 bedroom ranch city house
4- cedar hill river house

Sunday afternoon and we are not having any open houses - last week we had one at the maplewood location and had no one came till the last 30 minutes and then 2 couples came thru - they didn't look in the basement - so there you have it - if they don't open any cabinets or look in the basement, things aren't looking good - no closet lookers!

The smaller city house did have a looker yesterday morning with an agent - we keep saying "it only takes one." This is the one I was hoping someone would latch on to because of the tax credit of up to $8,000 for first time-home buyers.

(The specs: The tax credit is equivalent to 10 percent of the purchase price of the home--which must be a principal residence--but is capped at $8,000. It applies only to first-time home buyers, who are defined as buyers that haven't owned principal residences for three years before making the purchase. The credit only applies to those who buy a home on or after Jan. 1 and before Dec. 1, 2009.)
