Another case of an agent who didn’t read Freakonomics

329 Shore Rd

329 Shore Rd

According to the authors of Freakonomics, real estate agents price their own homes higher than they do those of their clients, hold out longer, and get a higher price in the end. Had she read the book, perhaps this agent would have done better than getting just two out of three of those.

329 Shore Road “on the Belle Haven peninsula” (which means it’s not part of Belle Haven at all) was built in 2006, priced by its builder/owner/agent at $5.2 million that year and kept on the market for 915 days until late 2010, when it was pulled. It came back on at $3.495 last August and today reports an accepted offer.

    Christopher, you mentioned a property which were two condos being sold together as one unit. But, I forget the address. Do you remember which property I mean??
