however since you mentioned it, i guess it's ok for others to give their opinions. your house looks fantastic, it's well built and the location may be suitable for quite a few who wish to be in that area. what i suggest is, try not to be so antagonistic in your efforts to sell. if you draw a line in the sand with such over the top declarations like above, then don't be surprised if potential buyers are put off. the only "BS" so far i've seen is you declaring you don't care if it's sold. if that's true then pull your ad and keep the house.
Different personalities result in different perspectives I suppose.
Personally I don't take his comments as antagonistic, I take them as "this is the deal, these are the terms,so don't waste my time." I'd rather deal with someone like that than the wishy washy "it's negotiable" or "it's up to you" types. I prefer a straight shooter that lays it on the table, but that's just me.
He's spent time dealing with looky loos, people that want to buy it but can't, people that want to buy it but on terms completely different than what cebubird has set, people that want to buy it and then decide it's not for them, and people that think they smell blood and try to steal it. I'm sure it gets old after a while.
I don't think him saying "I don't care if I sell it or not" is completely true but I would venture to say that he's not going to lose any sleep over it either way.
As for pulling the ad he's set a deadline that if it's not sold by a certain date then he'll do that and it's no longer on the market.
jmho and the way I see it .. ymmv
