You have to love human nature
Just watching a programme called Location Location here in the UK. A couple have been dithering about a house they like and now another buyer is in the frame.
The presenter, Kirstie Allsopp, is calling the agents to make a counter offer to try and get them the house. While she is doing this I hear the young woman in the background say "They better not say no or I'll really want it".
Unfortunately there was then a third party so it went sealed bids.
But how interesting is it that we become very motivated and sure of what we want once we may lose it or someone else may have it.
