5855 E Placita De La Zuerencia, listed at $1,295,000 went under contract a few days ago after being listed at this price for 2 1/2 months. Long Foothills office listed it and this was the third agent to try a swing at selling it. Of course, it started at a very high list price of $1,800,000 in July 2008. More than a few times I have been the second listing agent and then I get the house sold after the first agent floundered. Only the most seasoned agents can get the job done in this price-range during present market conditions. Of course, if it is priced too high, no agent can get it sold. Price is everything in today’s market where almost all the buyers are very market-savvy and rarely will pay over the market price.
