I sure hope this isn't the impression I'm giving people. I report the data as I see it. The data may be glum, not me.
In regards to the show, it'll be interesting to see whether there's any merit to the approach. When I was a home seller and then [for a brief while] a real estate agent, it all came down to price per square foot in determining value. Trying to sell $200/sq ft in a neighborhood of $100/sq ft comps was a tough sell, so to speak, regardless of the granite countertops and the sub-zero refrigerator.
Then again, I guess it's really all about the ads, not the approach's merit.
