Or why multiple, smaller reductions in price can backfire.

Dian Hymer put together a great article to addressing this topic in today’s real estate market. During the bubble housing market, a price reduction was considered a stigma.

Seller a Home with Defects

I am an advocate of sellers obtaining home inspections prior to an offer to purchase is received.  It can save thousands of dollars for the seller in the end.  Many sellers will shy away from pre sale home inspections because they don't want to spend the money or they fear disclosing what they learn.  However, . . . . . . . . . .

Attention Sellers:  Take control of  your property with home inspections and avoid unwelcome surprises. 

Typically, home sellers often wait for a…
