This would involve knowledge of all necessary legal formalities, documentation formalities and verifications that need to be completed for a home sale.

Tip3: Know the happening in your neighborhood

Brag about the fact that there are no foreclosures in your neighborhood. It's always an excellent weapon to have in your Armour while negotiations are on. Buyers always prefer a clean neighborhood and lack of such events automatically market the neighborhood.
