Pricing Case Study: The Housing Market Teaches Why Cost Plus Pricing is a Bad Idea

Pricing Case Study: The Housing Market Teaches Why Cost Plus Pricing is a Bad Idea

This is part three of a four-part series with pricing expert and Pragmatic instructor Mark Stiving. Each new episode will feature a case study on current pricing trends.
 
In this episode of Pragmatic Live, Rebecca Kalogeris, VP of marketing for Pragmatic Institute, and Mark discuss the trends in the housing market.
 
“The number one takeaway from this and to take away from every pricing situation is that we always put ourselves in the minds of our customers and try to figure out how are they making decisions.”
 
They discuss:

  • The elements driving buyer behavior in the housing market.
  • The reasons why Zillow stopped flipping houses. Answer: Labor shortage and “the winner’s curse.”
  • How we can apply lessons learned in the housing market to B2B and SAAS companies.
