The Overpricing Epidemic

February 6th, 2012 · 3 Comments

I have recently encountered what seems to be a reoccurring problem in the process of hunting for listings in my farm area.  While I typically create a CMA (comparative market analysis) to hone in on the proper list price for a home, I have found that most Brokers, and their associates, do no such thing.  […]
