WHAT WOULD YOU BE HAPPY SELLING YOUR HOME FOR?

What would you be happy selling your home for?

I love asking that question of my prospective sellers.  It always knocks them for a bit of a loop...

Most would be sellers expect me to start talking when we first sit down.  Waving around page after page of statistics to educate them on pricing.  I prefer to start with a question...

What would you be happy selling your home for?

If I don't know what a seller will be happy selling his home for, how do I know if I can help him?

Sure, most sellers are a bit unrealistic.  Aren't we all...

But at least it lets me know where my seller stands with reality.

Give me a seller that is reasonable, I am going to sell a home...

An unreasonable seller?  I have no chance...
