Do you price your horses firmly?

Do you price your horses higher than what you expect to get, so you can lower your price?

Do you set a price but accept  offers?

Do you set a price and lower it after a set amount of time?

 

 I'm looking for a norm.

I haggle very little, buying or selling. If I'm selling set a realistic price and very rarely come off the listed price. I never have been one to price high and come down a bunch . I think you miss out on some potential buyers and lose credibility as a seller. 
People are used to asking what bottom dollar is or if price is negotiable, which needs to be established up front. Don't waste people's time. 

knowing the market should prevent having to lower the price .

Depending on the price range, I expect to be asked to come down $200 to $500. I also expect to pay $200 to $500 less, in general. I went down about $1000 on a horse recently because I liked the girl and I thought they were a perfect match.

I'm with you on this one.

 

I also do a lot of market research before I price one. I look for similar bloodlines, age/body type, and experience level. I want to be competitive in the market and not price one high just to see what I can get.

I usually set horses at what I think they are worth and should sell for based on the current markets. Sometimes I price them at a price point I know they will sell quicker at.

I almost always wiggle $500 with someone, more than that depends on the horse.

I don't typically lower after a certain time frame, but I will put more time into one and get more videos in order for them to have more of a reason to be at that price. 

I have accepted offers for quick/uncomplicated sales.
