A Survival Guide to Selling a Home Paperback – February 23, 2005
The Amazon Book Review
Author interviews, book reviews, editors picks, and more. Read it now
"...a superb book about selling a home.... With chapter after chapter of good advice from the experienced real estate broker, this book struck me as one of the best I've read on how to sell a home -- and I've read virtually all of the new ones."
--Robert Bruss, syndicated columnist
"Homesellers who spend a little time and effort making their homes more marketable will net thousands of dollars more than those who simply put 'For Sale' signs up on the front lawn and call it a day.
A Survival Guide for Selling a Home helps readers face the challenges of deciding whether or not to use an agent (and how to find one), estimating a price, and deciding which upgrades are worth making -- and which ones are not -- to add to their home's value. Featuring handy checklists, worksheets, and examples, the book takes readers step by step through the process of selling their homes, giving them valuable information on essential topics including how to:
* prepare the home to be shown * negotiate offers * avoid costly mistakes
* attract serious buyers through marketing * take the stress out of closing * and get top dollar in any market
In addition, the book discusses options such as renting and keeping the home as an investment, tips on moving and storage, and even a list of the seven biggest and costliest homeselling mistakes."
