If I find them a property that they really want, I can get that them that home at the price that is good for the market, meaning not under the market value but not over the market value as well,â€? she says. â€œI would never let them overpay for a property at all. While it is going to contract, I have an appraiser come to make sure that it is priced right.â€?
