Just curious as we have our inn on the market. I like the option of "make us an offer that we can't refuse" as opposed to conveying it in the sale.
We have a fabulous website, on many directories, social media, goodwill, etc.

I suspect if you tell prospects to "make you an offer you can't refuse" you'll be refusing a lot of offers.

That said, you'll at least know who the prospects are to start negotiating with.

Seems like property, houses in general, in many areas is selling well, often above asking price, how do you stand with your local market for housing?

I think your marketing efforts show up in revenue. If your marketing is good, your can command a higher price because your revenue will be better.

If someone shows up with a broker in tow, they will want the sale broken out by business and real estate. There are tax implications.

the price for the residence is priced according to current properties, but that doesn't include the furniture and business.

Yes. I think it is different. When I am spending a lot of money, in something I haven't done before, I am wary of things that are different. THat being said, maybe it would attract more of the investor type.
