Using storage space or fill your garage with the items to thin out or downsize your house makes your house feel larger and more attractive to buyers.

Ninja Real Estate Marketing
There are certain marketing strategies that top agents use to make your house sell faster, and for money!
A lot of people ask Mike, what marketing strategies do you use to sell houses so fast?’ It’s not something I keep a secret. Reverse engineering the attention of buyers is the best approach to sell a house. Did you know you can download every email address of a realtor with clients that match the house your selling criteria? Plug it into a Facebook ad and it puts your house in front of every Realtor that has a buyer searching for a property like yours!
I am surprised how many Real Estate Agents will refuse to take the effort, devote the money, or put in the time to educate themselves on the marketing techniques that appeal to the highest probability buyers.
Negotiations are not a battle, “Winning” a war does not determine who is morally right – only who survives. Skillful Negotiations are trying to solve problems, overcome obstacles and to comprehend if there is a scenario that is a win-win for mutually the buyer and seller. I am exasperated that so many Real Estate Agents want to battle or use low tactics. There is a time and place to advocate, stand up or even fight for your client but when your strategy is steeping in unprofessional or unethical behaviors you lose the buyer.
If you negotiate skillfully most deals stay together if you do not you lose.
