I recently met with one of my currently listed sellers in an effort to get a price reduction. I went over all the market statistics and showed him charts and graphs outlining the average list to sold price, number of listings, days on market, etc. At that point, my seller said to me "You are just doom and gloom!" and he ended up withdrawing the listing.
I have always prided myself on giving great customer service and being up front and honest with my customers. I believe that my sellers deserve to know what is happening in the market so they can make informed decisions.
We, as Realtors, do not create the market, we simply intrepret it. So, I ask you - Is telling the truth "doom and gloom"?
Love to hear your comments.
