This reminds me of one of my first clients when I was a real estate agent. He was elderly and selling his mom's house. I spent so much time on him, taking photos, taking more photos, changing this in the description, changing that, having Open Houses, etc. He was very particular because HE used to be an agent. We would get offers - GOOD ones, and often above asking price - but he'd decline them all. I'm surprised he even got offers, because he wouldn't allow a lockbox, wouldn't give me a key, and would often not even respond to requests for showings. One day his wife said she didn't think he really wanted to sell, so when the listing expired, I let him go. I called the realtor who'd had the listing before me, and she (his 3rd one then) said he just like playing the real estate game in his retirement and would never sell. He's currently on his 8th realtor.
