After reading this book cover-to-cover, we meticulously followed every piece of advice and strategy recommended. From staging, to carefully selecting the best Real Estate agent, including listing and advertising strategies, this book covered it all. Not only did our house sell in 4 days - we received 5 offers including one full-price offer followed with a backup offer above full-price! We continued to follow the books' recommendations and made sure to choose the best buyers that WE wanted based on their qualifications, and got it into contract as soon as possible. The proven techniques from this book saved us a tremendous amount of hassle, emotional aggravation and most importantly our time!
In this market, with all the uncertainty out there, people are hesitant to buy. However, if you follow the unique ideas in this book to motivate people and generate the right interest from qualified buyers, you may have a shot at selling YOUR House FAST in this SLOW Real Estate market! This book is highly recommended and I can't thank Ray and Bill enough!!
our house sold. The best part was feeling that we knew which offers to negotiate with
and which to simply ignore. Following Chapeter 12's step by step review plan really did it for us. We have both sold homes in the past but doing it this time was very much
done in the RIGHT order, knowing what our home was really worth, through finding the right agency to represent us and how to really pick the right agent made a world of difference. Thank you to the Two Authors who provided excellent insights and strategies that they have used, especially the ones that they tested during the last real estate crisis of the late 80's.
ps. Loved the trick about finding the most qualified buyer in the neighborhood through
the interview strategies with the Agents. Also, how to find the right appraiser and home inspector before listing it was also very well explained, and why this is so important in today's market.
on what to do and what NOT to do and when. Best step by step book on selling real estate
we found that clearly was written from many experiences both good and bad over several
decades. These strategies should be uses in the marketing of almost any high priced ticket
items, especially real estate. The book keep it simple, yet was highly effective for us!!!
Lots of Tips on Things we never thought of, but would easily be deal killers if overlooked.
The Chapter on Negotiations was genius, simplified, but brilliant in when and what to say!!!
We finally found the right realtor after some logical words of advice on pg 91-93 on how to
choose and agent and how real estate offices assign an agent to your propety. (We had no idea)
That was our first mistake. Anyway...
Don't hesitate to buy this one, loaded with great tips and insider information we never knew.
A+++ Great job guys...
