I got your frustration. I also clearly understand a lot of sellers cannot stomach the current market value of their house. Current market value being defined as the price a buyer is willing to pay in todayâ€™s market place.
Do not expect an agent to spend time and money marketing a house priced well above todayâ€™s value, good strong agents will avoid listing your home, a lot of agents will not even show your house.
Listen to what the agents say. Itâ€™s painful for most.
