The CLEAR Approach To Selling A House!

 By Richard Brody 


Since, for most people, the asset value, of their homes, represents, their single - biggest, financial asset, wouldn't it make sense, to use the best approach, when they, decide, it's time, to sell their house? Since, there is no such thing, as, one - size - fits - all, when it comes to real estate transactions, the smartest approach, usually, is, taking advantage of the combination of time - tested strategies, as well as customizing the specific approach, to the circumstances, and actual, property/ house! With, that, in mind, most would benefit, when/ if, they took advantage of, using a CLEAR approach, strategy, and action plan! Therefore, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why, it matters.


1. Competition; clarity; create/ creative; condition; communication: The best results occur, when agent, and client, proceed, on the same - page, and, this comes, from enhanced, communication, from the onset! One must know and consider, the competition, so there is clarity, in terms of the reasoning, in terms of creating, the initial, listing price! Objectively, evaluate, and compare, the strengths, and weaknesses, in terms of the house, and property condition!


2. Listing Price; listening; location: It's important for a homeowner to realize, listing (or, asking) price, and what it sells for, are, often, different. Agent/ client discussions, must center - around, effective listening, and empathy! In real estate, location, and its variables, are significant!


3. Emphasis; empathy; esthetics: Is there anything, about, the esthetics, and appearance, of a property, which might make this one, stronger, or weaker? It's wise to place the marketing emphasis, about perceived strengths (accentuate the positive), and, always, remaining, empathetic!


4. Approach; area; assets; advantages: Knowing, and appreciating, both, the advantages, and disadvantages, is a great beginning, to the finest, possible, approach! What are the primary, assets, and what aspects, of the specific area, add, or distract, from the perceived value, and attractiveness of this house?


5. Region; reasons; rationale; realistic; rooms: Considerations, such as the particular region, the number, size, and attractiveness of the rooms, are major factors, in marketing a home! Quality real estate agents, articulate, clearly, their reasons, and rationale, to their clients!


When, the CLEAR approach, to selling houses, is understood, and followed, the results usually benefit, and the overall, transaction, is generally, less stressful! Will you follow these basic steps, to get the best results?

 By  Richard Brody  While, unfortunately, political spin, is, a reality of our system of government, we must not overlook, the potential dangers, of, proceeding, with the same - old, same - old, rather than seeking the finest, often - necessary, well - considered, viable solutions, to address true needs, goals, priorities, etc! In 2016, Donald Trump upset the political experts, and normal expectations, by articulating a campaign strategy, emphasizing his campaign slogan, Make America Great Again! However, many believe, the past four years, has seriously set us, back, significantly, in many areas, especially, those related to the environmental, and climate needs, and need to seek renewable, sustainable energy sources, and approaches, instead of, merely, the same - old, same - old, business - as - usual, and excessive reliance on fossil fuels. While politicians, often, seem to focus on their personal agenda, etc, the world must address these challenges, sooner, rather than later! Even, m

ABCs Of Your Career Journey - U Is For Unleash

 By  E. Elizabeth Carter  How often do you completely let go? In other words, when was the last time you just stopped running on that hamster wheel of life and took a real break from the action? It is important to take time-outs periodically in order to have the opportunity to unleash your inner self. This is not just about spending a quick moment to "stop and smell the roses" but instead hitting the pause button for a period of time. The issue with doing this is that we have a tendency to unleash our inner critic. It is bad enough that we are bombarded 24/7 with negative news and images so why would we want to focus on negative things about ourselves? Is it because we have too high expectations of others and then we feel obligated to even be harder on ourselves? You need to just stop! All this negativity does not help you with your career journey. Instead it actually can do the opposite. By constantly berating ourselves we lose confidence and motivation to take on new opport
