In casual conversation with neighbours (and their guests) at a client's home, someone mentioned having an investment property for sale (main floor restaurant, 2nd floor apartments).  My client's ears perked up as the owner talked on and on about his property.  My excited client wants to drive by ...

It bewilders me that some Buyer agents don't take the time to do the extra research to properly fine tune their "comps" -- not even full-blown CMAs, mind you.  You can tell as soon as they start "defending" their offer:they used too narrow a search area (e.g., the same block)they relied only on M...
