Bargaining

…at an open house where the photos were pretty horrible…

Me: Looks like you could use professional photos.

Agent: Probably.  What would you charge for this?

Me: For this size place?  $X.

Agent: I know someone who can do it for (50% of X).

Me: Then you should call them!  That’s a great price!

Agent: Um….

Me: What?


Moral of the story: There’s always someone willing to do it cheaper.  Maybe not better, but cheaper.  And there’s always someone willing to claim they can get it cheaper.  You can’t argue with them — they’re just trying to get you to drop your price.  If you do, you’re stuck.
