One of the fears that seems to beset some of the hundreds of home owners who are thinking about selling privately is, "I’m not sure I can negotiate with a buyer."
Bullshit! You can. Anyone can.
My system has taught hundreds and hundreds of home sellers to take control of any negotiation and come out the other end with a deal to be more than happy with.
Now, when is that time machine going to be ready for action?
Have you ever seen the movie, “Hot Tub Time Machine”?
Silly, far-fetched, yet pretty funny none-the-less.
The part of this movie that made me laugh and say, “If only…”, was where the character ‘Lou’, who had been dragged back into time with his buddies, was back in the present day hosting a lavish party, in his mansion, covered in gold, sporting a nicely implanted head of hair and surrounded by gorgeous women – all based on his massive internet business: Lougle.
For years, no, make that decades, Agents have cast a spell over home and property owners to make them think that the only viable and safe way to sell your home was to hire an Agent in exchange for a healthy commission.
Now, in an age where the internet is THE greatest marketplace ever seen, a spot light has been well and truly shone on an industry that sometimes has to vigorously defend its practices and justify its existence to an increasingly better educated consumer.
Times are a-changing.
Up until, say, the last four or five years, there was one method that almost every potential home seller explored – consult the Yellow Pages and/or Google and find a good agent to sell their home.
Now, real alternatives are presenting to an awakening market.
