I recently went on a listing appointment, comps in hand, statistics in hand including days on market, average sold price in the community, etc. When we got to the pricing part of the presentation, the seller's wanted to put the house on the market for $100,000 more than they could get in today's market. After spending time, reexplaining the market trends, they came down to $50,000 over market. I still didn't feel I would be doing the seller any justice by taking the listing so I told them I was sorry, I would love to work with them but it just wasn't in the cards right now. So I walked away - now an agent has come in and taken the listing for $80,000 over the market price. When I left the seller, I did tell them if they list with someone else and if it didn't work out to call me and I would be happy to talk with them again. How many of you have left that door open and have you received the call of reality?! I am going to sit back and watch and wait - but it seems seller's still think their homes are lined with gold!
