Last week a prospective home seller contacted me by e-mail. She had her home on the market last year and it didn't sell. I looked the listing over and asked a lot of questions. I think the home's list price was too high, which is fairly common -- especially last year, when prices in some areas were dropping.
The seller adjusted the price to what I think is just right and then took it off the market a couple of weeks later because of the holidays. It looks like her agent did a good job, except for one thing: The pictures of the home were not good. They were not taken with a wide-angle lens, and the lighting was poor.
