The haves and the don’t haves

I linked to a WSJ column awhile ago in which the author, clearly a man after my own heart, discussed house listings as being divided by the “have to sells” and the “don’t have to sells”, and how that affected their respective pricing decisions. Today a house on Oneida Drive that was originally listed in January for $7 million was dropped to $5. And also today, 5 Lindsay Drive, land, was renewed at $4.950 million, where it has been, unsold, for the past year. One of those houses is owned by a serious seller, the other by someone indulging in a Zillow “make me move” fantasy. I won’t be bothering the owner of the latter.

    Somebody tell the author that the expression is “the haves and the have nots,” so his analogous phrase should be “the have to sells and the have not sell nots.”
