Ever successfully negotiated with a seller who's pricing way too high for the current market?I've been watching our local market for the past couple of years. It's the same story over and over. Really high (high being a double entendre!) original asking price, then drop, drop, drop, it ends up around 100k less and finally sells.So here I am, finally found the right house for us, right where we want to be, the style of home I've admired since I was a little girl, and the sellers (shocker) think they have the one home in America that wasn't touched by the recession. It's heartbreaking because I know after we move somewhere else, they'll drop the price into a range more in keeping with the market. Has anyone ever gently and successfully gotten a seller who's emotionally attached to an unrealistic price to come down and realize the market conditions? They just had a broker open house and all the brokers advised their price is too high. What can we do? Anything?
