Sell Your House Without Keeping It Clean

If you're one of those odd people who love nothing better than to maintain your house in military inspection condition at all times, we apologize in advance for this blog. The truth is, at least from personal observation of our own houses and those of people we know, cleaning is not high on the list of priorities. In fact, it ranks so low as to be basically ignored until the level of disarray reaches critical status and you find yourself trapped in the bedroom behind a stack of dirty clothes. Being a slob doesn't make you a bad person, and even if you're not a slob, who among us doesn't like to let the house go for a week or so? Here's some grim news. If you intend to sell your house with a traditional real estate agent, he's going to be in your back pocket telling you that it needs to be kept in pristine condition at all times because you never know when he's going to drop by with a potential...

Stop Chasing A Declining Market

Whether in the stock market, commodities market, currency market, or real estate, chasing a declining market is a bad idea financially and psychologically. If you've ever sold a house using the old-fashioned real estate business model, you're probably quite aware of what we're talking about. You and the real estate agent (mostly the agent) set a price for your house. It doesn't sell immediately, though it might be attracting a few lowball bids. Eventually you bite the bullet and lower the price because the market seems determined to not support the asking price. But you're still getting lowball offers - maybe even lower now because they seem determined to undermine your price by a certain percentage no matter how low you go. So you cut the price again. And again. And maybe even again. This nerve-wracking process can easily play out over the course of several months or maybe even a year,...

No Open Houses With Open Door Auctions

The open house is an unavoidable part of selling your house. Or is it? Walk into any traditional real estate joint in town and they'll assume you know that an open house is part of the deal. If you want to sell your house, you agree to let complete strangers trundle through your house any time of the day or night, over the course of many months or even a year. The open house. Agents hate them but know they have to do them. Sellers hate them. The only party that seems to be favor of the arrangement is the buyer. What kind of industry manages to continue functioning when two-thirds of the participants are disgruntled? short essays A dysfunctional industry is the answer we're looking for. One of the first things you'll be glad to hear about Open Door Auctions is that there is no open house involved. Let's backtrack slightly. There is one open house and it happens on the day the property...

No-Lockbox Needed To Sell Your House

In case you've never sold or bought a house before, and have never made the acquaintance of Mr. Lockbox, you don't know what you've been missing. The lockbox, perhaps more than any other single item, symbolizes all that is wrong with the traditional real estate way of doing business. To veteran sellers the lockbox means: - loss of control - invasion of privacy - living life on another person's terms Wait a minute now. It surely can't be as bad as all that. Unfortunately, it is. For real estate newbies, a lockbox is a little metal box, hollow inside, with a combination lock that hangs on your door handle and cannot be removed unless you possess either the correct sequence of numbers required to open it or a sturdy hacksaw. The purpose of a lockbox is to allow your friendly neighborhood real estate agent unfettered access to show your house to prospective buyers any time of the day...

The NO-Hassle Way To Sell Your House

Given the choice, would you prefer to sell your house with a lot of hassle or a little? How about no-hassle? Doesn't that sound pretty good? Open Door Auctions founder and CEO, Jason Hartman, has seen a lot of hassle in his 20+ years in the real estate business. In fact, he's seen so much unnecessary hassle that he devised a sales method that removes the hassle entirely. The trouble with the old-fashioned real estate strategy is that it's bad for everyone. Sellers hate it. Buyers hate it. Even agents hate it. They do it because it makes them money - for some, a whole lot of money - but somewhere a little voice in their head cries, "Stop the insanity!" Jason Hartman decided he would, indeed, stop the insanity. His innovative two week approach to selling turns tradition on its head and makes everyone happy at the noticeable absence of hassle. Buyers love it. Sellers love it. Agents love...
