About Merribeth Burns

Born and raised in Indiana, I was fortunate to have phenomenal parents, as my role models.  My mother, Ruth Alyea Hall believed in the importance of education and living a balanced, enriched life. My mother saw to it that I experienced all these things.  I was involved in 4-H, Girl Scouts, Travel,  Art, Music, Dance, and Church. She encouraged me to obtain my Bachelor degree from Franklin College. My father, McCoy Hall was self-employed and epitomized the entrepreneurial spirit with a passion. He was a  “Go-Getter”,  the “Deal Maker” and never met a stranger.  I am very much my father’s daughter when it comes to business.

Wealthy Home Seller Secrets

It’s true! Every day homes sell for WAY less than they should. It makes me cringe to see how many mistakes people make when selling. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great if you’re a buyer. However, if you’re a seller every mistake can cost thousands of dollars.

For decades, wealthy homeowners have been selling homes the right way. Think about it for a minute… if you’re selling a 10 million dollar home, a 1% increase in the sales price equals an extra $100,000!

Affluent sellers do what it takes to get top dollar for their homes. Normal sellers don’t seem to take selling as seriously (I have no clue why?) and normally don’t do what is necessary to get top dollar. If you use the right home selling strategies you can make at least 10-30k more when selling a $200,000 home.

In my book, Wealthy Home Seller Secrets, I break down what affluent home sellers do differently. I reveal their strategies, secrets, tips, and much more. I’ll also show you how to use them when selling your home.

 

You can get a copy of this book absolutely free. Why am I giving it away for free? It is because I know that the strategies revealed in my book can make you enough extra money to send your kid to college, buy a new car, or do a nice remodel on your next home.

By Owner Guide

I get it! You want to sell your home yourself and avoid paying a commission. I don’t blame you. That’s why I wrote a book that explains the best home selling strategies for selling your home without an agent.

I see a lot of homeowners make really costly mistakes when selling their home without an agent. Most of the mistakes are very easy to avoid when you have the right information.

My goal with this “By Owner Guide” (as I like to call it) is to give you all of the information, tips, tricks, and tools you need to sell your home yourself. I eat, breathe, and sleep real estate and love to see homeowners successfully sell their home for top dollar.

When you sell your home for the best possible price, it helps me because it keeps the comps high. It bothers me to see homeowners get less money than they deserve. If you are selling your home alone, claim my free By Owner Guide to make sure that you get top dollar.

Sell your Expired Home

Why do some homes seem to never sell? 

There are a lot of reasons, but each one of them can be solved with the right tools and methods. Yes the price is the first thing to look at, but many times it’s the other variables that make the biggest difference. 

Do not simply drop the price in an effort to get it off the market. In this book I’m going to walk you through how to market it better (online, with MLS and improve on your showings), signs that your agent is hurting the process and even the best negotiating strategies. 

Just because it could be an extended situation, where the house has been sitting on the market, do not resort to drastically lower prices to sell. 

Get a copy of my free book and I guarantee that you will find it full of valuable strategies for getting your home sold for more money faster.

Make sure you get the most for your money

I wrote this guide so you will have everything you need in order to make the right purchase on your home, and for the right price. I hear so many stories of people moving into a house that had thousands of dollars in damages they were unaware about.

Things like this happen too often. Negotiating mistakes where the buyer or their agent let it slip how big their budget is, and it ends up costing them. In the book I’ll go through the best ways to weigh out your wants against your needs. There’s also everything else from inspections, shopping for a loan, the closing process and much more.

It even starts with extensive guide to real estate agents and realtors, detailing everything they do (or should do). Claim your free book now and start getting prepared to start your home search.
