Real Estate Pros...
I'm asking for honest opinions here, not necessarily your personal practice, but for the industry in general.
The RE market is probably tougher now than it's been in a long while. Do you feel that some agents purposefully undervalue a home, so that it sells quicker? In other words, if comps come in for a home at around $200,000- do some/many downplay the home they're assessing and recommend the HO list for 180,000-?
The difference in commission would be around 1,000, but with a quick sale that nets 9,000, it would be worth it, no?
Keep in mind that the HO has NOT asked for a quick sale, but is looking for a good starting list price.
