For a moment, the Realtor seemed to be drawing back in confusion. Then she triumphantly replied, "Of course there are incentives! The longer the house stays on the market, the lower the price will be."
"Price?" Jennie Jenkins asked dubiously, since she had been thinking more along the lines of an incentive that was provided by paddles and things.
"But it is too early to talk about price now," Crina went on, waving the thought away with one plump white hand and its moderately long pink nail. "Let me see how many bedrooms and baths you have."
"The house is big enough to entertain my many friends. I know they would like to meet you," the owner replied, as she led her guest upstairs to view the four bedrooms and three baths (including a master suite).
"And I would love to meet them, too," Crina enthusiastically replied. "They are our most likely buyers. And do you have a finished basement-recreation room?"
"Absolutely! With its own attached kitchen. And another bath, of course. Well, it's really a powder room, like the one next to the front door, because it doesn't have a bathtub," she explained, as she led the Realtor down the stairs, "but it is very convenient to the rec room."
Looking around the wood-paneled chamber, the Realtor quickly proclaimed that it would show beautifully, especially with all those antique chains draped on the wall. "We will say it has a rough and rugged appeal, like a British manor house."
Fervently, the owner agreed, "It certainly has that!"
