And my neighbor put his up for sale for 30k less.

Its a couple hundred ft^2 less in size.  3 bucks a ft^2 less than mine.

 

not sure I am happy with my agent over that.  She listed his at that price days after I signed the contract.

Same agent?  Damn, I'd be pissed.

 

 

Does yours perhaps have better features?

Its bigger, has hurricane shutters all around.  

Other than that they were all built in the same design style in 1995.

I am at 207 a foot he is at 204.

 

There is one mitigating factor, his house is right next to a natural gas distribution lot.  You cant really see it, a block wall surrounds it. But that is his next door neighbor besides me.

 

I had a "chat" with her.  She claims it is no big deal.  She has a couple families that are looking to buy 2 homes side by side.

 

 

Color me doubtful.

You're only 1.4% difference in the per sqft price. That's practically the same, so if yours is slightly nicer/more desirable, it might be fine.

Yeah, doesn't seem like an issue if the $/sf is nearly identical.

I disagree... $30K is a big difference for similarly sized/styled houses that are in the same neighborhood, let alone right next to each other.  

 

Hold to your guns on your asking price.  If a family wants both, they are going to have to play ball with you.  It's not often that adjacent houses come up for sale at the same time a family is looking to buy two.

You should have negotiated a lower commission with this twat if you knew she was potentially going to get the sale and the purchase.

Given the page 3 info I don't see the big deal. Your house is bigger and not next the natural gas facility.

In my book having a natural gas distribution lot next to me instead of a neighbor is worth a trillionty

Does the agent have the listing for both houses? If so she could be getting the buyers agent cut and sellers agent cut on two houses in one deal. That's potentially 4 times the commission of just representing the seller of a single house.

It is all about location and neighborhood.

1) 98% of the land in my county is already developed and has been since the 60's

2) people are moving here at a truly disturbing rate

3) I live in pretty nice neighborhood

4) my home and the surrounding 2 blocks are all newer which is SUPER rare in st pete.

5) nice quality schools all only a few blocks away


Yep, I gave Juan her card and said call her when ours sells.

He called her and signed right up.

 

I want a referral check?  Wheres Muh Check?


I loved having NG available.

When the hurricane took out the electricity couple years back for like a week, at least we had fuel to cook with.

I'm sure you can request she drop the price on yours. What's the issue here with her trying to get you more money if you're not in a hurry?

I'm assuming that buzz is worried that a 30K option next door will make to harder to sell his place let alone get his asking price?

Maybe, but again it's priced 1.5% higher than the neighbors when normalized. Also depends on asking prices. 30k is a lot of your in the mid 100s, not much when you're nearing 7 figures.
