[Strategy #1 Selling a Home]

   The home I am selling is roughly figured to sell at the price of $189,900. but factored
in is the unknown (negotiation room) and commissions for agents that may surface
and feel their contribution was winning nudge tying the deal together and thus you want
 to count them into the deal paying 3 percent per side (both buying agent and selling
 agent reaping 3% of the Sales Price, each).

Seller sets the advertised price at $222,000. Before long some smooth negotiators
 come by and see the home. Showing no emotion and no passion about the home,
 they view and list the updating they feel is necessary to bring the home up to par.
Seller gets a call from the buyers and the buyers offer
 (with “NO real estate agent” involved) the following:

$198,000.00     Price to be paid for the home.
10,000.00      Buyers own money down
188,000.00      Buyers to Finance the Net diff.
6,000.00       Seller equity to be awarded the Buyers for their own rehab
of the home and updating, etc.
4,000.00       Seller equity contributed toward
the buy-down of the Interest Rate to be paid on the 30-year Financing.
500.00         Seller negotiates w/the Appraisor to be paid from the
                             Settlement of Escrow by the Title Company.
200. 00        Home Inspection paid by the Buyers outside of Closing.

   This ensures the Buyers will have the lowest possible house-payment since extra cash
 was thrown toward Discounting the Rate of Interest and beefing the Origination Points
 to butter up the Mortgage Broker so he/she has not the temptation to raise rates to fund
 backside points to which their Commission comes from. Plenty of front side points for the
 Broker ensures the absolute lowest Interest Rate of the Loan Program can be utilized to
 calculate the house-payment. {MoneyTip!!!}

The Buyers are $300.00 ahead on the entire transaction with $6000.00 cash coming to
 them at the Close of Escrow to refurbish the home as they see fit.
The Sellers net $187,500.00 from Sale of their Home.

Figured accordingly:

$222,000. Initial Price of Home Advertised.
24,000. 6% commissions NOT PAID to real estate agents. None were involved, remember.
 Inflated price was reduced by the unknown factor. Good Faith gesture on the part of the
 Sellers thus price was reduced.

$10,000. Paid toward Closing Costs of the Buyer and/or Refurbishing capital to update the
home as seen fit (after the closing).
$500. Appraisal Fee netted out of the Settlement at Closing and paid out to the Appraisor
 by the Title Company after Closing.
