Being a Seller

How can sellers avoid bringing $ to closing?
Shudder to think you are paying the buyer to take the house.
Hmm. There is an interesting website that says Sell Your House in 7 days.

If you put your house on the market at a low price do you need to go lower b/c the buyer always wants to negotiate or do you stay firm with your price? 250K would enable a buyer to see the listing if he / she was looking in the 250K plus range and the 250K minus range. What about the appeal of 99s? 299 vs 300. Which would you be more interested in? Does 299K make it more likely that someone looking 300K or above will miss your house? Probably not. The buyers probably have maximum limits but are more flexible with their minimums. Never saw a buyer who would not agree to pay less.
