Faster horses?

A room with red dachshunds wallpaper design, some framed paintings and an owl ornament by the wall, a glass window with blue curtains, a large black ride-on horse toy, a wooden piano with a score, and an owl figurine above.

It was the great Henry Ford who said, “If I’d asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.”

If you ask a viewer what they think of an asking price, they will tell you it’s too expensive. Why shouldn’t they? If they don’t want the house, it will look too expensive to them, and if they are thinking about offering, their comment will help them to justify a low offer; it’s a win-win for them.

Don’t ask a viewer what they think of an asking price; their answer would be as relevant as asking a horse rider what car they want.
