One Seller's Remorse

I got an email from a buyer I have been working with for nearly two years. She noticed one property she has been eying had recently raised the asking price by $200,000 (not a typo) .  I looked the property up and recalled having discussed the property with my buyer several months ago. Sometimes sellers will agree to a price reduction to stimulate new interest in their property.  But there are some sellers, I guess, who believe that if they raise the price on their house and are willing to wait for the right buyer to come along, that they will eventually get their price.

I guess if a seller is wiling to wait as long as it takes to get his or her price the wait is worth it.  I guess.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
