Planning is the key to earning the most money when you sell real estate. Treat the sale of your home as you would a very important business deal. Sellers are so proud of themselves when they negotiate a reduction in commission, but they’re overlooking where the money really is.
ASK A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS PERSON WHAT THEY CONSIDER IMPORTANT WHEN SELLING ITEMS IN THE QUARTER MILLION DOLLAR+ RANGE? They probably won’t recommend focusing on the nickels and dimes. Focus on the total sale price. A 5% increase in your sale price at $300,000 is $15,000! Think about that when listing your home focusing a small savings.
