How to get rich? Let’s see what rich dads and moms will tell us.
* During the declining housing market, the seller needs not to be scared by the buyer’s over counter-offer. Remember, the most important point is to get the house off your hands as soon as possible. To lose less money means to protect you principal.
* When the housing market is sluggish, it is easier to sell a house that has been fixed up and refurbished.
* When the housing prices are rising, even the shabby and run - down house could be sold easily. However, the run – down house is not easy to sell during the declining housing market.
* Before the house is going on the housing market, the seller has to hire a house inspector to make a overall check-up and issue a report in detail. According to the report, the house owner has to have all the defects of the house to be improved, such as repairing, fixing up, painting, making up and beautifying. Then let it go on the market for sale. That is a comparatively smart way to sell a house.
* If the original home owner is reluctant to spend some money for repairing and refurbishing a house (or a house without a license), he is sure to be the loser at last.

* The attitude of the seller must be very flexible. To yield to if necessary; to give in if need to. In a word, do not let the buyer find any major problems or defects and change his mind to buy the house. This is the principle of home-sale during the period of economic recession.
* When the housing prices are declining, it is natural to think that the buyer’s low counter-bid is to take advantages of the seller. As a matter of fact, the buyer is somehow helping the seller resolve his difficulty. In some way, the buyer is the life saver of the seller.
* To sell a house is similar to marry out a daughter. The more beautiful the girl looks, the more suitors will compete to win her over. When the housing prices are dropping, whichever house is expected to sell have to be refurbished. The more splendid and tasteful, the better, it will be much easier and sooner to be sold.
* Spending money to repair a house is not only beneficial to the potential buyer, but also to seller himself.
10* Attending a warm hospitality to the potential buyer is another unique skill of the seller in selling a house.
* When the housing market is slow, if both seller and buyer cannot build up a friendship of mutual trust, the house will not be sold easily.
* If a house that must be sold will surely be sold, while a house may or may not be sold will not be sold definitely.
* There is no house that cannot be sold, but there is only a seller that is too greedy. There is no house that cannot be bought, but there is only a buyer that is unwilling to offer a good price in fear of losing money.
「沒有賣不掉的房子，只有太貪心的賣主。沒有買不到的房子，只有 ( 不肯出好價 ) 怕吃虧的買主。」
* Sometimes a seller’s bid is unreasonable, and a buyer’s counter-bid is also unreasonable. When these two unreasonable factors add up together, it becomes the major factor that causes the housing market critically declining.
* Either from a buyer’s standpoint, or a seller’s standpoint, both should regard each other as a benefactor. We should do buying and selling in a grateful mood. A housing transaction like this will certainly be very smooth and successful.
* If you can always bear gratitude in heart, with no greediness, no grudge, and no hostility, you will be a real man, and your will succeed in your business as well.
