You guys are nuts!

Asked by Bruce, Salton City, CA Fri Apr 13, 2012

The prices you are charging for a lot full of sand in an almost ghost town, that has tried but unfortunately not been able to survive is outrageous! No wonder no one wants to go there. Your pricing it way out of line! Money hungry realtors, and land grabbing, greedy investors! You should all be ashamed of yourselves. This is the reason this almost vacation area flopped the first time!

Money hungry Realtors. Nice.

Realtors do not set prices. We show our sellers what the market history is, what comparable properties have, and are, selling for... and then the owners decide how much they're willing to sell the property for.

Buyers ("you guys"), then get to decide if they want to pay the "out of line" prices. If the prices are truly out of line, it won't sell. It's a pretty simple system but it's been working for hundreds of years.

Alan May, it's all your fault. You greedy realtor! And you alone, not the arid desert and stinky Salton Sea failed as an 'almost' vacation destination back in 1974!!! :) lol.

HI Bruce, thank you for posting your question/comment on

I'm not sure which "guys" you're talking about or what prices you think are nuts, however properties are selling in Salton City.

Recently sold a 1,700sf 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom newer home with a full length concrete patio, granite counter tops, tile flooring in good condition for $60,000, not sure if selling that type of home is being a money hungry REALTOR(r) but anyway, it made someone a nice home for a great price.

Don has the right answer, make an offer you feel is reasonable and perhaps you'll find a great home too.

Who are "you guys"? You're posting in a question-and-answer area; I can't find a question in your screed. Beyond that, it's a free country. People can ask whatever price they want. If you feel it's too high, then make an offer you consider reasonable.
