Sellers tend to overprice and spend a tremendous amount of effort trying to defend their price, even if the market doesn't support it.
Pricing a home correctly is a partnership between sellers and their agent, not a battle of wills.
When it comes down to it, the most important advice a real estate agent can give sellers is how to price their home. No matter how beautiful or well-maintained a property may be, how many upgrades it has or how well it shows, if a home is not properly priced, it’s going to be a tough sell.
The battle for agents most often lies with aligning what sellers’ think their home is worth with its true market value.

Agents across the US are getting calls from would-be clients who realize buying is suddenly getting cheaper
Like an avalanche growing larger as it tumbles down a mountain, real estate agents are seeing swelling demand from buyers as mortgage interest ratesplummet and — contrary to what some observers previously expected — home buying actually gets cheaper.
The latest news of falling mortgage rates came Thursday, when a new survey from Freddie Mac revealed that the average for a 30-year fix-rate mortgage had dropped from 4.28 percent to 4.06 percent — the biggest single-week decline since 2008. The rate drops are tied to the Federal Reserve’s belief that the economy is poised to slow down, according to an economist from Freddie Mac.
We know how important we are to the transaction — it's time everyone else knows too
A vast majority of today’s consumers believe that selling real estate is an easy business. Many believe sites like Zillow provide all the information they need to locate the right house and close the transaction. Sadly, both groups are seriously mistaken.
There are three primary reasons consumers hold these beliefs:

The buyers were very particular about the home they were buying. They absolutely needed parking for their RV, which can be hard to find in a certain price range. They looked at numerous resales and the buyer finally decided to consider a new build. Their agent, Tami Jacobson of the #1 Tonnesen Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties in Las Vegas, made them aware of a Henderson Lennar community that offered an RV garage with their home, which was exactly what they were looking for!
The model they selected was a single story in the active adult community of Heritage in Henderson, Nevada, part of the master-planned community of Cadence, one of the newest and most exciting new home communities in
Most homeowners would probably prefer to have a professional licensed Realtor work on their behalf to sell their home, but not everyone sees the value of paying a fee for an agent’s expertise. I get it — it is not easy to recognize all the work it takes to prepare a home for sale, list it, market it and make sure everyone involved in a transaction is on schedule and committed all the way through closing.
Great agents make great partners because we bear the (substantial) cost of marketing, we have the ability to expose people’s homes to more buyers, deal with the mounds of paperwork and save the homeowner time, stress and money.
Still, people sell their homes as a For sale by owner
The buyer was determined to find the home of her dreams at a price she could afford, not always an easy task, but with Tami Jacobson, a star agent on the Tonnesen Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, she was on the right path. Tami was able to identify the perfect home, but it was in probate, which can scare some people off because it can often take a long time to close. But the buyer had faith in Tami and felt that the home would be worth waiting for. The Las Vegas home was clean and airy, but in need of some TLC. Fortunately, she saw its potential and took the cost of repairs into consideration when placing an offer.
The home is a nice two-story on an oversized lot in the quiet master
