  1. A Masterpiece in every way, but the seller just duzzint get it. Eleven years on the market and he, and his agent/broker, are still clueless. By dropping the price over 50% from its original listing in 2010, nobody can possibly have any idea what the estate is actually worth. I'm sure the conventional wisdom goes something like, "if I hold out another 6 months, the price will drop another dozen million. If it only drops half that, I still win." It's become a waiting game - a race to the bottom.

    How old are these pics? What condition is the place in today - right now? What's been done to conserve the mansion and the grounds? Doers everything still work? The HVAC is over a decade old, as is the roof, the plumbing, the electricals, etc. The house is too old to have all the "smart" features you can get today - has it been updated - or not? For $33 million, I would not be interested in compromising on anything.

    The description of this place needs to get real. It's got to start answering the questions any serious buyer would ask, but shouldn't have to. A full and honest disclosure of everything that could possibly matter to anyone needs to be there. Build some confidence, and they'll find a buyer.

    1. Your entire second paragraph is the absolute truth!!! Thanks for always coming by and sharing your assessments.
