Sellers and Realtors disagree on pricing


A new survey from HomeGain suggests one of three things: Either home owners are unrealistic about what their homes are worth, or agents are too pessimistic about what homes will sell for, or some combination of the two.

The survey found that nearly 50% of homeowners think their houses should be priced 10% to 20% higher than their agents have recommended. Less than 20% of agents nationwide say that home buyers are telling them that homes on the market are priced fairly. Almost 60% of agents say potential buyers are telling them that home asking prices are too high.
