If you don’t know the difference between St. Louis Park’s “Fern Hill” neighborhood and Wayzata’s “Ferndale” neighborhood . . . you may not exactly be an expert on the former.

In which case, it’s a good idea that the home’s asking price be as low as possible.

“Check” and “check,” on both counts (but, whether the agent knows how to maximize the price in multiple offers is also a very open question).
