Mark Hacking pleads 'not guilty'
On my way to bed

Realty pondering

The neighbours' house went on the market in mid-September, and the for-sale sign on their lawn has had a red sticker reading SALE PENDING since about 5 days after the sign was planted.

Is that just a silly sales tactic by real-estate agents? Do they actually think claiming a sale is pending will enhance the desire of a property? And if they do think this, is there any evidence to show they're right in thinking it?
