8 so far...I understand the wanting of all the money one can get. Getting it is another story altogether

None of the sellers agree with the voice from the dark side (unless they are buying).

Most of them suspect the one pressing 20 pages of stats on them.

100% of those who list with me agree with my strategy.

Supported by the comps only means values are limited in the amount they can go up. Someone has to challenge the borders. Now I DO AGREE, being unwilling to challenge the borders, letting historic sales dictate, makes the agents job easier, but that is just not the way I roll.

9.5, they typically agree with my numbers...hard to argue numbers, but some still think: "that original 1975 shag carpet is vintage and in great shape" is a selling point that deserves a higher price. I get a few that begrudgingly accept my data or negotiate a "let's just try it for 1 week" price. I'm pretty firm in what I will & won't do and I'm lucky enough to have "bye bye now" options at this point in my career.

8.  Most take the advice.  Some have suggestions or want higher.  Sometimes THEY ARE RIGHT!

I think that most are a little afraid of leaving money on the table and think that many agents just want a quick sale even if it means under pricing.

It depends on their motivation and time frame. Motivated sellers (8) are usually the best ones to work for. They tend to listen to the market and my comps just happens to match the values.

Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers "0" - Not a single one. Everyone has their own fantasy of value when listing and want to over price their properties. That is until you bring them back down to earth with a realistic salable price.

I'd likely say a "9." After showing them comps, showing what happens when homes aren't properly prepared and priced, I'll often suggest a range. Almost always they pick the higher end of the range, but that's good with me.

On your scale I'd say 8 price it correctly. The ones that over price are usually sellers that interviewed other agents who incorrectly price properties or are not strong enought to disagree and show the seller the correct value. One very large firm known have mostly newer agents is the usual culprit.
