Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.

Hello Doug, It is I who certainly thank you for selling the house so quickly. I was afraid I would go bankrupt carrying the house note without a job. Now my future is a lot more secure. Thanks again and if I hear of anyone in the area wanting to sell, I will certainly recommend you. Best of luck,Betty C.
Thank you so very much for the gift card-an always handy & appreciated gift for new parents! We really enjoyed working with ya'll & hope to do it again in the future. Thanks again!Matt & Soni A.
Dear Doug, Thanks for spending a couple of days helping us find a great home. We know there's not too much in it for you to spend that time on a residential lease-but it will really make our lives better. And we appreciate you for that. We look forward to being neighbors.David & Stephanie B.
