How To Sell Your Home or Property Privately | Selling Privately Book

Selling Privately Book

Do you want to know how to sell a house or property privately? Have you ever looked for information about selling your own home privately? When the author was wanting to sell his own home privately there wasn't much available and getting good information was difficult. What was around was either very short on detail or didn't explain things in any logical manner.

Official statistics indicate we move house every 7 to 8 years - that's a lot of commission to pay over a lifetime and buying the book is a once only investment. On a $900,000 house sale, it would take you on average over 1000 hours of work (about 6 months) at $29 per hour to recoup the amount you just paid in real estate agents commission fees.

This professionally written book (over 130 pages) has sold over 5,000 copies to date. It covers selling a home privately in New Zealand and could possibly be the best investment you will ever make. If you have the question "How to sell a house?" then do it the right way and maximise your chance of a successful sale - buy the book.

During the weekend I read through most of it. Later I will read individual sections again and act upon their suggestions. So far, I have been extremely impressed with the content and presentation of the book - not only because the information in it will be very useful to me, but also because it gives me confidence that I CAN sell my house privately.
R Chapman, Havelock North

Basically the book gave me the confidence I needed to sell the place privately. On my own, I would not have attempted it.
S Murray, Auckland
