Love this line ... Logic. That you "dont price low to sell the listing quickly, or high to buy the listing".


I do not list low to sell quickly nor do I list high to buy your listing. - See more at: http://activerain.com/blogsview/4311274/biggest-home-seller-mistakes-and-how-to-avoid-them-#sthash.PjVmzU4H.dpuf
