Re: Selling a house

As the OP I thought the gang would like to know what happened.

Brother's home sale funding today. He found a 5% broker who worked hard. He initially was very agressive on the price and held that for about a month, then droped the price 14% which started a bidding contest between two parties. Closed between the initial and low asking prices.

I wouldn't have had the nerve to drop the price as he did, but it closed on the very high end of what I thougt it was worth.

Duck bjorn.
