Curt Cassingham's Studio City house sat on the market for a month with no offers. To stimulate some interest, he announced that he would pay a $3,000 bonus to the realty agent who brought in a buyer for the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house listed for $949,000. Four weeks later, he upped the bonus to $10,000 to the selling agent, to be paid on top of the commission. "I decided, instead of dropping the listing price, to entice the Realtors to bring someone in," Cassingham says.

A setup or pinball property is a house listed with an unrealistically high asking price that pulls in lots of visits by agents and shoppers, but no offers. The problem is this: Real estate agents, including even the listing agent, are using the overpriced house as a negative example to sell similar homes in the area that carry lower asking prices.
