In 1991 I had a home in Stamford, Connecticut, that was costing me $3,000 a month to maintain.
When I asked my broker to sell it, he said the market was so bad I should wait six months. Six months and $18,000 later, he told me the market was even worse and I'd better wait another six months.
But I couldn't wait another six months! That home was eating me alive and I didn't know what to do.
I decided to run an ad just like the one on the front cover of this book (except the price in my ad was $255,000). I received over 100 telephone calls, and more than 40 families came to visit my home during the two days it was open for inspection.
Five days after placing the ad, I sold my home for $271,500! I got $16,500 more than I asked and $50,000 more than my broker thought he could get. I saved $18,000 in interest and taxes, and I didn't have to pay a $16,290 commission.
I put $84,290 more into my pocket than I would have if I had followed my broker's advice.
