Like Watching Paint Dry

Selling a property doesn’t have to be painful – but some people obviously like it. It’s nearly impossible to leave money on the table, so price it right, time it right for the market, and your chances of getting the best price is more likely than over pricing it.

Bouncing around from one agent to another, only to find it’s way back to the original agent, albeit a co-list, this property’s extremely long history didn’t serve it well. From an asking price of $19M in 2005 to a third of the price in 2017.

Built in the late 80’s, this 12,000SF faux chateau  on 12+ acres, with loads of detail and decor, that was no doubt factored into the cost of removal and replacement.

Less is more
