Irony Or Foreshadowing?

Irony Or Foreshadowing?

It probably didn’t seem quite so ironic to have originally included “Sellers to remain on the property at no cost until 9/29” in the listing for 1141-1145 Filbert. But after two months on the market, and a $1,250,000 (25%) reduction, it’s looking like the sellers just might have an... Read More »
