    Sell This House - D&D Radio

    in Hobbies

    Tune in today for another great episode of the The Down and Dirty with Frank Fontana!
    Up first is Sell This House: Extreme master builder Charlie Frattini. A few weeks ago, we had show host Tanya Memme on and she gave us the scoop on the crew... including Charlie. We'll learn about his background, and how he got involved in A&E's longest running daytime show.
    During our Craftsmanship segment, we're welcoming Dr. Ron Koperski and some of his students to the studio. He heads up the COM 494 class at Bradley University's Slane College of Communications and Fine Arts, and they're in the midst of learning the craft of public relations and communications during their spring Corporate and Agency Seminar.
    We're also checking in with Dinger Bats owner and partner Kyle Drone about manufacturing wooden baseball bats in a startup atmosphere, and we'll hear a DIY Disaster story from The Impatient Gardener blogger Erin Schanen.
    Let's get Down and Dirty!

    60 Seconds to Sell: How to sell your house...fast.

    in Design

    When people talk about how to sell your house, they often think of those important things like kitchens, baths, cleaning up and putting cookies in the oven before the open house. But what often gets left un-talked about is the value of speed.

    And if you want to know how to sell your house---fast---you want to talk to realtor Danny Griffin of A&E's 60-Seconds to Sell. Along with his brother John, the Griffin brothers are high-stakes realtors turning the typical home sale technique on its head. They list a house at about half its traditional market value. This starts a feeding frenzy of deal-hungry buyers. They call it the “quick sale auction”.

    They say it works.

    You can see the action as it happens on 60 Seconds to Sell. (Saturdays at12:00pm on A&E).  The trick is to get buyers' attention and then let greed, desire and market forces take over. Once buyers smell a deal, they’re drawn to a two-hour, one-day open house and auction where the brothers start a bidding process (war?) and let the circling buyers feed with their checkbooks.

    The technique infuriates some traditional realtors, but Danny says it works and susses out what the home would eventually sell for anyway, minus all the waiting.

    What does this do if you want to know how to sell your house quickly? It creates a possible path to get the price you'd get anyway, without the carrying costs of a house that languishes for weeks and months on the market. It makes it possible for a homeowner to get cash in hand to move when they want to and get the new house they're buying without someone else snatching it up from under them.

    It's a gamble. Have you got 60-seconds?

    The Sell with Soul Book Club - Are You an Exceptional Real Estate Agent?

    in Real Estate

    Welcome to the new Sell with Soul real estate podcast for real estate agents who want to be the best thing to ever happen to their clients.

    This podcast is different from pretty much any other real estate-related show out there in that we focus not on cheesy lead-generation techniques, ridiculous script memorization or intelligence-insulting objection busting strategies, but rather on being an Exceptional manager of a real estate transaction. One who inspires his or her Very Satisfied Clients to tell the world about their wonderfulness, which, for the record, is one of the best business development strategies on the planet. 

    The SWS Book Club will meet two Monday mornings a month. The premise of the Club is Simple - Jennifer Allan-Hagedorn will read a chapter or two or three to you, in her very own voice, from one of her seven books. We are kicking off the Book Club with her latest - The Exceptional Real Estate Agent: Because Competence Gives You Confidence. (click the link to order on Amazon.com). 

    In the first session, we will cover the introductory material and Chapter One, including "Who is the Best Real Estate Agent You Know?" "What's So Great About Being Exceptional?" "Are Real Estate Services a Commodity?" and "Are You on the Right Flight?" If time permits, we will conclude with the Exceptional Real Estate Agent quiz...

    We hope you enjoy it!
