Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 7, 2006
Does your Dad worry that the real estate bubble is about to burst? Or, does Dad patrol the neighborhood or Internet to see what everyone else in town is doing? If so, good news. Your gift for Father’s Day has arrived! A little book that tells the truth about Finding Killer Real Estate Deals has just been published and in it, author and Los Angeles real estate broker Bob Boog mixes psychology and humor into a potent mixture that is both useful and fun to read.
“Most people start their search for finding a real estate bargain by picking up the phone and calling a real estate office,” Boog writes. “Usually they’ll ask, “Do you have any fixer-uppers or repos available?” That’s not a bad question. What you don’t want to do is call a realtor, explain that you have no intention of buying and then ask for a favor. People will actually do this: they’ll call and say, “I’m not ready to buy yet, but would you do me a favor and show me all the killer deals in town this weekend?”
Most realtors (including me) will jump at this offer with the energy of a sullen teenager forced to shop with his mother.”
Finding Killer Real Estate Deals: Proven Insider Secrets for Investors, Real Estate Agents and Bargain Hunters like You THS International,168 pp $19.95 is being released June 8, 2006 -- just in time for Father’s Day (June 18). It features seven insider secrets that include: Asking better questions, romancing foreclosures, tips on finding probates, divorces and distressed sellers. In addition, there are Boog’s hilarious personal anecdotes as well as three myths that he claims hold back some people from investing in real estate.
Myth number one: A buyer must always find a “motivated” seller to get a good deal. Not true, claims Boog, and he shows how many buyers pick up bargains from unmotivated sellers. That’s right. Unmotivated sellers.
Myth number two: A buyer must always drive a hard bargain because nice guys finish last. Again, not true and Boog advises against taking unconscionable advantage of seniors and illiterate people.
Myth number three: A seller with loads of equity will always welcome a low offer. Boog writes that most equity-rich people are fond of holding onto that equity and will only relinquish it when it is in their best interest to do so.
A prominent psychologist once remarked that buying or selling a house is one of life’s biggest stressors, ranking up there with divorce or getting married. So what better gift for Dad than an inexpensive book with a sly sense of humor and lots of fun stories. Who knows? Pop may get the urge to start shopping for another house! Of course, you may also wish to slip this book in your favorite beach bag and enjoy a laugh while taking in the sun-- or just petting the dog.
