Have to price it right. After so many showings, price reduction. If the seller is on your back they need to see a psychiatrist, we're in a pandemic. They are lucky to get any showings. Any push on that & I'd cut them loose.

How are your photos?

Market the neighborhood and to the neighbors and the house will get activity.  Market to area realtors to help educate them on this particular neighborhood.  

Why does this neighborhood have longer days on market?

High end homes do not get as much traffic as lower end homes. Statically speaking, there are fewer high end incomes than there are lower end incomes, so naturally there are fewer high end buyers. You are only looking for that one buyer, not traffic.

Not just physical showing. Adjust price...crank up better images...more photos. Add more carefully crafted narrative...shoot video..on property and area. Add plat map...floorplan and provide more than every other agent or broker. There is always a market. Turn up the marketing not pull back.

Our MLS has publicly stated DOM is not applicable during COVID. So don't trip out over DOM right now. But who is the most likely buyer: demographic of that buyer should be directly marketed to and then unleash the Kraken!

Canvass the neighborhood and the neighborhoods, etc. where that demographic is currently living and go with marketing, social media posts, blog, direct mail post cards, video, 3-D Matterport, etc.

'Know to have longer than average market times."

It is interesting that agents and consumers believe there exist any statistics comparable to today's reality.

The first thing you MUST do is get a REAL measure on today's market. How many ACTIVE buyers are there? Home many for that area? How many for that community? How many for the attributes of that house? How many active at that price point? WHERE are the houses at the price point selling? Why?  Now do exactly the same for SOLDS. 

Does a disconnect exist between what is selling and this house?

Now you have something to talk about.
Next assess if your level one and level two showing are 10 times the sales. If yes you have done your job marketing, the sellers are rejecting the value. If no, you need to do a better job.

Time is ALWAYS the outcome of price. If you wait long enough everything will sell. Assess what the reasonable outcome will be of this situation then identify where the money lives. If the seller is unreasonable, look for YOUR money somewhere else. An activity where you have more control.

Now we come to your question.....drive more traffic, but capitalizing on that traffic is equally important. You may have every intention of hosting an open house that has no purpose. Don't do that.

If you want traffic today, and actual traffic is LAWFUL in your location, this is the PERFECT time to launch a collaborative marketing initiative.  Collaboration with the right partner (not a lender, maybe a title company, but preferably a local business, charity, interest group or NGO).

If the seller REALLY wants to sell, do a TOM and prepare for a big event with your collaboration partner, where the owner has EMPOWERED you to sell that house. Right now that is not the case.

If you are not empowered to sell the home understand you should chose on of the other four purposes that ARE NOT 'sell this house.'

Boom! DONE.

I've not experienced issues with a lack of showings or getting a listing sold. That said, my market in Silicon Valley is different than most markets. The average sale is over $1M.  Even tear down properties are in high demand and multiple offers. 
Consider the pandemic.  If seller is antsy a price reduction may help.
