Can the insurance industry descriminate a town like Wellesley. Sounds more likely that the clients insurance company did a property survey and didn't like the tree situation. I would assume it was triggered by the home price. Higher price might need an inspection especially with lots of custom interior work and high end appliances.

Get the ins agents name and number asd ask.

Short Sale Mitigation, LLC answered:
It means the negotiator has reached out to upper management, or another department that oversees the progress of the file internally and can likely rectify any issues the file is having progressing forward. The expectation of the file and the reality of what is happening usually will trigger an escalation request.

The ratio is used more as a ballpark guide with both the sellers and the buyers.

Buyers can use the stats to decide where to start their offer. If on average houses are selling at 95% of list price, then buyers have an idea of where the final sale price should be.

Sellers can use the stats to see where their house may sell at and also to see where they should list the house.

When the price of a house keeps being lowered, then sellers can see that it would be best to list closer to the last list price and avoid over pricing the house.

What really is important is what similar houses in the area are actually selling for and use that as a guide.
