10 Mistakes Sellers Make

January 1, 2009


This is awesome. I want to put this video on all of your blogs FOR you so your sellers can see it; this is really clever. It’s rare that a non-real-estate-produced piece is done with an understanding of the content (like this video for example), but this is done in a clear, concise way that explains to sellers what they need to get done to get their home sold.

My favorite part is at 0:50 through 0:60, I rewatched at least 10 times and laughed my butt off!

    Awesome video – thanks Lani! I like the part where the cat is swept under the rug, although the smell would probably still linger.

      Hey Lani,

      I just wanted to let you know that the embed code is incomplete. The last little piece of code seems to be missing. Do you happen to know what the full code is?

        Hey Grant, try again, Howcast was acting wonky, it’s fine now.

    An excellent find. Every seller in the country should watch this video. Following these 10 easy steps will get some of those stale listings sold. I tell all my clients these things, but it will certainly be more fun to share this video with them.

    I have been following an online home purchase discussion that involves “the dead cat house” and “the cracked foundation house.” Now I can just imagine a couple trying to decide whether they should bid on “the Elvis shrine house” or “the ceramic pig house.”

    w00t! Gret find Lani, it’s on my blog now =) Have to say I agree most about the kitchen, I’m looking for a place now and when looking thru property pics online the kitchen is the picture I really care about. That and the bathroom, nobody wants a skanky bathroom!

    This is a very entertaining video; I plan to use it on my blog as well. We could all say the same thing to our sellers but how great for them to find it on their own from a objective source!

    Then when the video finishes playing a list of “related” videos is displayed.

    “How to See Through Real Estate Broker Tricks” certainly makes a good impression. :-)
