I’m not sure if this analogy holds up, but if you are looking to buy a home you have all the choices in the world. Kind of like a trout cruising a stream looking for a suitable meal. Looks flashy, let’s go take a closer look. Maybe it doesn’t smell just right. Doesn’t come up to scratch for looks, either. So the you pass.
Meanwhile here is the seller of that house there on shore casting out the best lure he has. Dress it up, skitter it around on the surface (internet). Who’s biting? Get a nibble? Tweak the line a bit but if it doesn’t set (a showing), try another part of the river. Switch lures (drop the price, offer incentives, etc.).
It’s eerie how much real estate is like hunting and fishing.
