BUY SMARTER, SELL HIGHER & PUSH YOUR REAL ESTATE AGENT TO HUSTLE HARDER
by Dennis Plintz
Buying and selling are hard as hell, It’s time for some hard truths.
Buying a home is stressful. (“Write a cheque for hundreds of thousands of dollars!”) Selling a home can be downright horrifying. (“Invite strangers into your home for weeks!”) It’s nerve-wracking, exhausting and incredibly difficult to get right.
But it doesn’t have to suck.
Dennis Plintz has more than 1,000 sales behind him to prove there’s a better way to do a real estate transaction. It takes thoughtful planning, managed expectations and a heaping dose of realism to make a sale happen elegantly.
••• Preparation: Questions to ask a real estate agent before you hire them, what a truly great agent should do for you, and real estate contracts 101.
••• Buying: Know when you’re ready to buy, what to look for (and run from) while house-hunting, and the true costs of buying.
••• Selling: Avoiding $10,000 mistakes (and a $100,000 one), how to make a buyer fall in love with your home, and why traditional open houses are a waste of time.
“Dennis’s main ingredient is love: love for his clients, love for the deal and love for life. Positively Sold is a must-read if you are thinking of buying or selling a home. Dennis continues to go above and beyond and leads the real estate industry to a new level and definition of customer service.”
