Potential Battles You Face As A Home Seller

If you are going through the stages to sell your house like I did recently, I completely understand your struggle. I faced many battles when trying to sell my house. It was an extremely time-consuming and emotionally challenging process. You may be thinking will anyone ever buy my house? I thought the same thing every time a buyer scheduled a showing, but we never heard back after that. I decided to share a few of the challenges I faced when trying to sell, and show you how to avoid them so you can sell your house for the highest possible price and still keep your sanity.

Battle #1 Emotional Involvement

I loved my home so much and the only reason I was selling was because I had to relocate. If you asked my opinion, I would have told you that my home was in pristine condition and no one would be able to turn it down. Much to my surprise many buyers did not agree, and it upset me deeply. Everyone didn’t see my home as a gem like I did, and they showed through the offers they made. I had to realize that the memories and feelings I created in this home were not for sale, and I couldn’t expect to add those things into the purchase price. Once I was able to look at the sale as purely a financial transaction and distance my emotions and memories from the deal, I was able to see what buyers saw and I realized that my home was not perfect. I thought it would be easy to sell my house, but it was in need of some minor things to make it more appealing to buyers.

Battle # 2 Not Properly Preparing

Tying into the first battle, my emotions clouded my judgment when it came to properly preparing my home to sell. I thought the condition was all that mattered, but most of the feedback I received from buyers was that I did not stage my home in a way that made it stand out. Although my home looked nice to my standards, I can see how a traditional buyer can expect a home that has been professionally cleaned, painted, and de-cluttered. By neglecting these small things that buyers look for, I was throwing money down the train and missing out on potentially good offers from interested buyers willing to take a second look.

Battle #3 Higher Expectations

A smart buyer with a good agent will make sure they negotiate to the fullest. Not knowing this tidbit also kept me from selling as quickly as I could. If I wanted to compete with other sellers, I had to realize that expecting to receive my asking price was not the best move. I also neglected to look at offers from investors who also did not offer the asking price, but many of them were willing to buy the same day, and in many cases pay cash for my home. In order to make a buyer feel like he or she is getting a good value I had to change my listing price to one that would attract buyers and leave room for negotiations, if needed.

As a seller I know these battles can drain you mentally and emotionally, but never fall into the trap of thinking the market is the reason your house is not selling. If you are having trouble selling your home it may be due to one of the reasons I listed above. Sometimes our homes may sit on the market for longer than expected because of our unrealistic expectations and our unwillingness to accept offers from other buyers like investors or companies who buy houses. I eventually found an investor that was willing to buy my house, but I first had to avoid making these costly mistakes. You can find a buyer too; just make every effort to learn from the mistakes of people like me!

The Small Town of Battle – East Sussex

The small town of Battle – East Sussex is a part of what the English call a local government district, with this particular entity being Rother. Geographically, the town lies about 50 or so miles south to southeast of London and is also near to the famous city of Brighton. Today, nearly 6200 people call the town home. It is most famous for being near to Hastings, where a great battle was fought in 1066.

This particular battle is famous for being the event that led to Norman rule in England. The Duke of Normandy, William, defeated the army King Harold II of England to become William I or “William the Conqueror, ” establishing Norman rule throughout the country. Its most famous structure is Battle Abbey, built in 1095 to commemorate the Battle of Hastings.

Gradually and over time, the town grew up around the Abbey and began to develop a serious reputation for the quality of its gunpowder that was made in the area. The first such gunpowder production facility was built in the area in 1676 and Battle was renowned in many parts of Europe for making the best gunpowder, though the town lost its license to do so in 1847.

As far as historical landmarks, there is a hill near to the town where it is believed that William I and his army first spotted the English army of Harold and began to prepare the battleground upon which the two great armies would fight during the Battle of Hastings. During World War I, Battle was designated as a refuge area, and many protective tunnels still exist to this day.

Battle today is known as a popular tourist destination and is visited by quite a few people interested in learning more about the Battle of Hastings, Battle Abbey and William the Conqueror and the Norman conquest of England. Railway stations and roads link this town to London as well as to several other communities in the area.

East Sussex, the ceremonial and non-metropolitan county in which Battle resides, has a current population of around 770,000 people. It was once a part of the ancient kingdom of the South Saxons, who took up residence in the area after the Romans departed in the fifth century. Both Battle and East Sussex are teeming with history and historical importance, both in England and in Western civilization.

Why Not Try a Little Known Underused Battle Plan in the War For Work From Home Money?

For those who work from home making money on the internet is an all out war. Ask anyone who has tried and failed in their bid to win.

The statistics say that around 95 out of every one hundred fail to make any money at all. So finding someone to ask should be quite easy to do.

The online battle field is strewn with the beat up corpses of those who didn’t get the job done. The battle field is not just in the U.S. but every country where someone can get online. That means there are at least millions now or at some point billions of individual soldiers sure of their ability to beat the internet and win their share of the gold.

There are big armies comprised of battle tested and well trained and thoroughly equipped soldiers fighting the war and winning the biggest and most lucrative battles. Individual soldiers with great battle plans do on occasion manage to win their share of battle field riches too. However the average everyday soldier is constantly taking a beating. The internet war for work from home money just is not kind to those who fight with no plan, no training, underfunded and poorly equipped.

Sure there are those single soldiers fighting with one hand behind their back who somehow manage to sneak into the online money camp and take a prisoner or two. However in the overall scheme of things the individual soldier far to often is nothing but a sacrificial lamb spilling his green blood for the large tested and proven armies.

The work at home battle fields promise of easy work from home money is nothing less than a trap for the over zealous under schooled and under equipped soldier. Almost anyone who has tried to find their way across it will testify to that.

Those who comprise the armies understand soldiers must have a plan and goals. They must have the knowledge and tools to put the battle plan into action or they are doomed before they start. The armies do not jump onto the internet battle field hoping for good luck they leave that to the individual and hopeful single soldiers.

They define their own battle fields, then plan and execute accordingly. If the plan is properly executed luck and hope are unimportant.

Having been an individual soldier and after being kicked around the battlefield more than once because I had no plan knowledge or internet marketing skills. Knowing I was ill prepared to do battle for my share of the work at home money. I finally learned a lesson. I needed a plan.

So I formulated a plan I believed I could execute. It made sense to pick battles that did not require knowledge or any particular skills when I didn’t have either the knowledge or skills needed.

The object was to skirt the edges of the battle field and engage those that didn’t require skill and knowledge to defeat. That was and is my plan.

Executing the plan wasn’t difficult. It just took sitting down and doing the executing. I was no longer overpowered or over matched. I had the needed skills. I had found my niche.

I found Incentivized Freebie Websites. They hardly even fight back. They just sit there and let you shoot. You can walk into their camp unafraid virtually risk free. The IFWs are in the white flag of surrender mode at all times.

Mostly they only exist to be beaten. Oh, sure they fight a little its pride you know and they do want you to feel good about yourself and not like some bully.

Don’t take this wrong IFWs don’t just roll over and play dead. They do make you do something. There are right ways to defeat them. Choose the wrong way and the devils will make you work real hard to do it.

Are you an individual soldier? Do you have a plan. Are you educationally equipped to fight the internet war for the work at home dollar?
