What does "Make me move" mean?

On the description of a house we are looking at, it says, "Set Make Me Move $1"

The house (which is a short sale) for which I've made an offer...been accepted by the sellers...and am waiting to hear back from the bank which is waiting for the BPO...now says "Set Make Me Move $1".  Could this be the bank trying to get last minute bids in to compete with mine??

The process behind "make me move" is good, but the $1 price is obviously not accurate.  Most likely they are trying to get the telephone to ring.

i would say it is a sales tactic to get you to call and inquire about something they are trying to sell or get you to list your home or sell your home.. or some angle... usually !
a make me move seller is typically not motivated to sell and does not have it on the market and thinks that their home is worth more than the average market value it would sell for if it were listed.. or they are trying this step before the try the for sale by owner method ; they may be in a very highly desired area and demand is very high so they just put it out there for anyone interested to make an offer.

good luck

There is more information explaining Make Me Move here. It is supposed to a price that someone might be willing to sell their house for. I do not know why anyone would enter $1 other than to make the house come up in more searches.
