Sorry that I did not post this earlier.  Last Thursday, March 12th was the scheduled date for one of my listings to go to "sheriff's sale".  With a drastic price drop I generated enough showings to bring in 2 written offers and over 12 showings in less than 7 days.  Over the weekend the home was ...
