"I don't need to sell"

Pontential Seller: "I don't need to sell my home but I would if someone was willing to pay me my price."

Me: "No problem.  Based on the market analysis it looks as if your home is about $50,000 overpriced for today's market."

Potential Seller: "Well...(long pause) we really don't need to be out of the house for another 6 months and we aren't really in a position where we have to sell.

Me: "So...if you don't need to sell...what had you put your home on the market in the first place?"

Potentail Seller: "Umm...I being transferred to Chicago in a few months ago but I don't really need to be there until September."

Me: "So your going to be moving to Chicago in a two months?  Is that the plan?"

Potential Seller:
"Yeah.  We bought a house up there last month and, uhh, my wife and kids are up there now getting enrolled in school and taking care of all that.   I'm staying back here until the house sells."

"Oh.  That makes sense."
