Lessons for Creating Powerful Strategies and Tactics to Sell Your Home Yourself with Confidence
Selling a house is often made to seem too difficult for anyone but a real estate agent to do. The truth is, it’s not complicated if you invest a little time and energy.
The question you need to ask yourself is “How much money will I lose if someone else sells my house for me?” The average homeowner sells their house every 5 years. If your house is worth $300,000, you’ll save up to $18,000 each time. Over 5-10 years, that’s a total of $36,000 hard earned dollars that you can keep for yourself and your family.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could gain the confidence you need to sell your home yourself and keep these large amounts of money to use for your next home or add to your retirement portfolio?
