After visiting the first open house for a new listing in Cambridge, John and Ella reached out to me.

"We think this is the one," John said. "We are really excited!"

With bids due at this address in a few days,  I suggested we meet at the house for a second showing. They agreed.

After touring the house together, they asked what I thought.

I noted the obvious highlights, including the outdoor space and open plan on the main living level. And then I paused.

"And?" said Ella.

I noted my primary concerns:
• "You want a bigger kitchen and this one is smaller."
• "No half-bathroom and no master bathroom and no bathroom on the top floor."
• "Older systems."
• "Not close to public transportation, making the commute to work hard."
•  "And it's overpriced."

After the showing, I completed a valuation analysis, making known to them that the house was overpriced by $150,000.

"Thank you" said Ella.

"Team effort," I said. "I'm here to help you buy the right home."

"We'll find it with you!" said James.
