This summer, when I started selling my own home, I was really nervous. I’d sold over a hundred homes in the past few years and this would be the first time that I was selling my home. I was scared, not only of not knowing what to do, but also of the possibility of being rejected. I had no idea what I was doing.
But it wasn’t just selling. We were sold by a real estate agent who told us that we had to change some things because our price was too high. We asked him what we could do to lower it and he quickly cut our commission. I still can’t believe we ended up with the lowest price we’ve ever sold for.
It’s interesting in that it’s a little like selling a car. That car has some defects. If you fix that, and its still a lemon, then you have to fix it. The same is true for our house. The seller told us that we needed to fix the bathroom door, which we had. But she also said that we needed to pay more for the bath, which we didnt.
The problem when selling is that you try to make as much money as you can. This can be particularly bad if you’re in a competitive market. But since this was a very competitive market, and you’re selling your house anyway, you can’t actually control where you make the money.
In the end though, you do need to make some money. In fact, you need to make more than you would in a normal market.
The real killer in selling is the fact that you sell a little something and the buyer/seller has no idea what it is.
Thats the best way I can describe how to make money in a competitive market. Its how you make more than you would normally make in a normal market. Thats why selling is so tricky.
This is one reason why I think it is so important to be a “real estate agent”. I know what a market is like and I know how it works. But most people who sell real estate are not in it for the money. They are in it for the lifestyle. People who buy houses are not in it for the money. That’s why I think it is so important to be a real estate agent.
You will get paid for the investment. It is the price you pay for the investment. It’s the price you pay for the home you rent. It’s the price you pay for the property you rent in the real estate market. If you sell your property in the real estate market, then you will pay out of pocket for the investment. If you sell in the real estate market and use the real estate market for buying houses, then you will have to pay for the investment.
Sure, it’s nice to be able to say someone has bought you a really nice house. But, like everything else in life, it’s all about the money. You have to be willing to make a lot of money in order to make a lot of money in real estate.
