Wifey thought that this message would be a turnoff to potential sellers who would forget about listing their home with me, and instead run off and find a less-informed agent who tells them the market is all blue sky and sunshine.
But I’m going to play it anyway, and hope that realistic sellers hear it the way it is intended – that the market conditions are healthy, but not frothy enough that you can put any price on it and expect your home to sell.
Others have commented here in agreement that if the current sellers would just lower their prices 5% to 10%, they would find buyers. Hopefully the media will fire out more mis-guided soundbites to assist with the process (once we get past tomorrow’s dated Case-Shiller Index).
