Getting the market to move

Why is it that Real Estate Agents tend to sell homes so low? I understand we have a poor market
right now but if we ever are going to get out of this slump we need to start listing properties for
their fair market value. Just because and agent is looking for a quick sale and a quick commission does not mean we have to give in.

I know everyone has personal situations but for those of us who can handle it we should not be pushed out of the way just because "its a failing" market. That is just not an answer for me. We have to try to change things up. If that means doing away with the agents and selling on our own then lets just do that. Take a stand people. I remembered a real estate agent once said to me she wants to "drive" the market. Well I do not think she meant to drive it into the ground. However, she was listing very low.

If we all decided that we want a better lifestyle then we all must do the work and try to help this
this slumping market get better. We need to sell our homes for higher price. Lets really push this
market and list homes for what they really are. If we continue on this path we will drive this country into the poor house. Perhaps we have given up and we are already their.
