True, perhaps. And don't forget to JACK THE PRICE 'WAY UP to more than recover your costs.

People in general seem to have a misconception of how real estate, sales or rentals, are priced. You don't price it to cover your costs and then some, you price it to reflect what the market will bear.

However, in addition a seller needs to make the product attractive to the largest possible number of people. Wallpaper is rarely a great seller, at least in the past 2-3 decades.

There is only one reason why real estate does not sell...price. If the place is not selling, then it is overpriced for it's condition. You have two choices...lower the price, or change the condition.
