400 North Maple Avenue sat on the market for a full yeqr — July, 2015-June, 2016 —unloved and unwanted, with its price stubbornly lodged in lace. The owner did concede a bit half way through and dropped her price from $3 million to $2.999 million, but even a full dollar failed to lure buyers her way, so she pulled the listing.
Now it’s back, and priced at $2.950 million, which amounts to no change at all. So be it; its her house, she doesn’t have to sell it if she doesn’t want to, but why didn’t her agent (same one as before) take advantage of the hiatus to declutter the place and have new photographs taken? The 2015 iPhone snaps may offer a fair and accurate representation of the house as it exists, but they are unlikely to draw in buyer from the Internet. Proof of that is their failure to do so in 2015-2016, so why reuse them? Go ahead: spend a day with a dumpster and bring in a professional photographer. It won’t cost you a thousand bucks.
And if all else fails, drop your price.
