    And all those changes for only an 8% reduction in price? Such is the emotional nature of real estate. The individual owner is saying to himself, “I cut the price $25,000. $25,000 is a lot of money.”

    The same person will go into The Bay, Sears or Walmart and say… “8% off??? Big f**king deal!” and will walk away without barely glancing at the item for sale.

    I wonder if he will put 2×2 together to understand why no one is looking at his unit for sale?

    And just as a side note two people a day ago were shot dead one block away in a Sushi joint.
    Not a great selling point.
