So what does this have to do with getting a great price when you sell your home?
These two magic words explain success in many areas of life. Valerie Adams has just demonstrated the power of Getting Serious in her 54th consecutive win, achieving gold for shot-put at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Achieving your goals in career, fitness or finance – to name a few – all had a starting point. That starting point was a decision you made to get serious.
It’s no different when it comes to getting a great price when you decide to sell your home. Some people go to the market with the attitude that they will sell if someone pays them a good price. This is merely wishful thinking, and may or may not come to pass.
The reality is that there are steps you need to follow if you want to get a great price. These steps will take time and effort to put into action. But unless you have made a commitment to follow these steps, you are unlikely to do the work that is required.
As a young teenager, Valerie Adams got serious about her sport, and it was no accident that she has become the “queen” of shot-put. Take a leaf from her book, get your eye on the prize, and get serious about the process of selling your home for a great price.
