Bay Area Real Estate Agents Are Kind of Making Fun of You

Oh for christ's sake ...“‘Asking prices’ are not that at all. They are ‘marketing prices.’ Buyers should never reflexively assign any validity to the price advertised on any particular property. Listing agents purposely under price their properties for sale and set an offer date. ‘Why?’ individuals may ask. They do it because it works.”
Are you in the market for buying a home in the San Francisco Bay Area? Sorry to hear about that.
