Scanning today’s preliminary Open House list it’s amazing how many old listings now tout that they’ve been “substantially reduced!”, or beg us realtors to “come see at new price!” The fact is, we did come, once, when these listing were new. A year on, or even six months on, they start looking pretty desperate and my inclination, at least, is to wait another six months and see what happens. No one has wanted the place so far, it’s probably safe to count on that continuing.
You’re only a virgin once.
BTW, Samuel Johnson defined a second marriage as “the triumph of hope over experience”. Probably applies here, too.
