In this featured video from Nick Fong, learn how to deal with multiple offers at the same time.  Then, uncover even more real estate wisdom from Nick Fong himself.  Now, read on to discover even more and to become prepared to succeed as a real estate agent.

Describing failure in real estate

After all of the success that Nick Fong has had in real estate, he says that he can link it always to a series of failures that he’s learned from.  When you pay attention and account for your mistakes, it’s failures that lead to success.  In other words, don’t be discouraged by failure, even if you fail often.  Fail fast and move on, learning from that failure.

Once you realize that failure as a function of success, deal with it in a positive way.  Look at failure as an opportunity to try something better.  It doesn’t have to be what causes you to fail and quit.  Now, check out this three-step course of action to turn your failures into successes:

1. Acknowledging your failure

First, you need to acknowledge your failure early-on.  As such, stop what you’re doing right away if your actions fail.  In other words, don’t waste any more of your time on it.

2. Evaluating your failure

Next, evaluate your failure in great detail.  To explain, go through the details of your failure and root-cause what caused the problem.  Then, make sure you look into what your missed.  Finally, uncover what you did wrong as quick as possible.  Additionally, be honest with yourself – you must learn from your failure so you can grow and succeed.

3. Correcting your course

Update your plan of action moving forward.  To elaborate, prepare a new course based on your acquired understanding of the problems you faced.

Sell your home furnished vs. unfurnished according to Nick Fong

To begin, if your furniture is decrepit and old, either sell it or donate it.  Then, sell your home unfurnished.  This provides a nice blank canvas for your homebuyer to furnish and decorate how they please.

Nine times out of ten, the emotion of the buyer makes all the difference in whether they make the purchase.  If your furniture is new and contemporary, they will likely love it after they feel pleased from their first impression.  But if the house or condo is empty and clean, their imagination will carry them away blissfully, providing the same result – a purchase.

It does a seller no good to try to sell a home with old and outdated furniture.  The first impression will be poor, and there will be zero inspiration.  As a seller, it’s very important to inspire those who view your property.  Therefore, optimize that experience with either new and attractive furniture, or a nice clean blank canvas for them to build upon.

Proper staging is critical for selling your home

Setting the “stage” for that first impression is called Home Staging. Staging your home is about transforming the possibilities to broaden the scope of potential buyers and get you top value for your home.

First impressions matter.  Therefore, make your home stand out the instant buyers pull up to the curb. Some upgrades can be done in a weekend and will cost more in sweat equity than actual dollars.

Here are some suggestions: rent a pressure washer to remove dirt and grime from your siding, roof, fascia and gutters. Paint the front door and/or shutters a bright color, but make sure it coordinates well with the rest of the home’s colors. Replace old house numbers, lighting, the mailbox and welcome mat.

Clean up the edging around flowerbeds and lay down fresh mulch. Fill in empty beds with small shrubs, seasonal flowers and greenery. Even if it’s the dead of winter, get a pair of urns or large planters and fill them with small evergreen shrubs and cold-hardy annuals. If you have window boxes, fill them with fresh greenery too. If your porch or stoop has room for furniture, add a couple of chairs to expand your outdoor living space.
