Why would anyone move away from such a great place?


I was talking with a group of agents the other day who were complaining about the small inventory of homes for sale.  They were trying unsuccessfully to figure out how they could increase the inventory.

I told them they are their own worst enemy.  They tell all the buyers what a great place this is to live, and the sellers overhear them and take their homes off the market.  Why would anyone want to move away from such a great place?

To get one with their lives!
To reduce costs!
To free up time!
Downsize!
Need more space!
Get closer to family!
To pursue a passion!

John, as you have often said, focus on the owner, keep one's own opinions silent.

Annette - but what if someone already has all that right where they are?
