Note to sellers: If you really, really want to get rid of your home and buyers aren't biting, try the auction route. It works.

And it goes like this:

"Who'd like to open up the bid at $100,000? Do I see $100,000? Over there! Who wants to bid $125,000?"

Yes, just like the movies. At an auction sale, a rat-a-tat-tat of climbing offers follows the opening bid and continues until someone comes up with the winning bid. The purchase is done and you can go home and clean your house.
