It happened again - we received an e-mail "You have a new lead from REALTOR.com!". Usually, this makes us a little excited - a new lead!
When we opened the e-mail about our listing, it wasn't a lead, at all - it was a knock:
"Is 'cozy' and 'charming' another way of saying 'Small' and 'Overpriced'?"
We had a similar e-mail a few weeks ago on another home - basically, a civilian telling us we were smoking crack if we thought we'd get $287,500 for the house. They were right - we sold it in 21 days for $285,000.
To send an e-mail via REALTOR.com, you have to register. WHO takes the time to make up names, etc., to 'correct' our pricing strategies?! Seriously!
By the way, the house in question is priced AT what the same plan CLOSED for 2 months ago - and it's more updated. Then again, this is just what we do for a living....full time....so we're probably wrong. ("Sarcasm Mode" turned off...)
Have you had similar derrogatory e-mail 'leads'? We're a little disappointed we can't respond with the facts, since the e-mail addresses aren't legit....
