    My daughter and her husband recently sold their house in Goodna as they are relocating to Mackay. I did not know until later that their real estate agent did a marketing job on them, $2500 for a photo shoot. Now this was a basic 3 bedroom high set house built in 1978 so it was not anything spectacular just a everyday house similar to what is in the area. I am yet to find out what other charges and commissions are involved but I fear that they have paid top price.

    True but how do you attract the buyer who wants your property or home. Think of it like this. ….. The noisy cockatoo will flock to the lawns and pick it to pieces to gather the morsels that nourish them. …. The carrion birds of prey, the crow the hawk will swoop and take up the vulnerable…… I spoke to your wife about the best strategies to finding buyers who want an old house, in the best street with 180 degree view of the ocean and migrating whales just 200 klms north of Sydney without the nosey, noisy cockatoos…… How do sellers attract the honeyeater, the bee, those that seek the high quality nectar who will only sup on the fresh and the beautiful buds and in return pollinate the flowers? …………. What can a seller do to avoid the noisy cockatoos and carrion crows and yet attract and help the discerning nectar eaters to find the sweetest fruits on the market? Regards

      Dear Elizabeth, Yes, my wife told me that she spoke with you. She was most pleased to have helped you. I love your bird analogy – as I am a bird lover. I was going to keep writing on HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT BUYER but I am always mindful of length. I will write another article – based on your comments. I assure you, however, like many things in life, the solution is incredibly simple. Just as we need to embrace silence at times so should we embrace simplicity. Another word springs to mind – patience. Often, the only thing you need to do when selling – once you’ve got the right agent – is wait. I am so glad I waited in my life – in so many ways, including finding my lovely wife at age 40. She has given me the happiest years of my life – all because we were both patient and willing to wait. I hope some of this helps you. Thank you for your support. Kind regards, Neil

      Thank you, Billie. I really appreciate you taking the time to post such nice comments. Without people such as you, I would not find the inspiration to keep doing what is often thankless work. You inspire me. All the best, Neil
