how to increase greenhouse energy efficiency – old greenhouse renovation

My name is Chris Powell from good harvestfarm, Strasburg, Pennsylvania.

And we’re here today to look at our energyefficiency savings and upgrades.

We had replaced an older 80 years old structurewith a new up to date 4000 square foot structure.

And it has glass roof, energy curtain, radiantheat in the floor.

And I went to propane fired boilers with hotwater and fen tube.

We also upgraded to computer controls.

We’re finding also that our plant qualityis much better because our heat is constant.

The heat is where we needed when we needed.

We’re about six or eight months thank tothe new structure and new heating system.

And seen better results than we were eventold we’re going to get.

Probably, minimum 40% savings versus our oldsystem.

Well over 20000 dollars savings per year.

So far so good.

We’re really glad we did it.

Big investment but see quick payback withit.

How To Build A Greenhouse – D.I.Y. At Bunnings

A greenhouse doesn't have to be bucketloadsof cash.

We're gonna make a simple one that you canmove around, and it's gonna have plenty of room in it for all your plants.

We're gonna take your garden area from this.

Tothis.

The good thing about a greenhouse is it cankeep you gardening all year around.

I'm gonna show you how to make a real easyone today.

These are all the tools and equipment thatwe're gonna need to build our greenhouse.

Just a few frames, a little bit of plastic.

If you're a keen gardener, you're gonna wantone of these.

I've got all of my timber pre-cut at Bunnings,and I've sectioned off and labeled all of my different components to make the buildeasy.

To make the base, get the hardwood sleepers,pre-drill and screw together with bugle screws.

To make the base for the floor, we are nowgonna add our timber, down to the bottom, leaving it flush on the floor.

That way you're gonna get a nice clean fit.

Once you have your framing, you can add joistsfor extra support.

This is going to provide the base for theflooring.

Now we have our sub-floor installed.

It's now time to flip it over and put on thecasters.

Use bugle screws.

There's no need to pre-drill, but make sureyou put the wheels with the stoppers on opposing corners.

To lay your floor, put your timber in ribside down, and layer that thirty-odd spacing to still allow for draining.

To make your frame, make the outer frame first,using the framing gun.

I know how big I want my door, so now I justhave to measure and put in my stud work.

Make sure you put in the second brace to allowfor the hinges.

So, that's our front frame made.

Now, let's go and make the door.

Make sure your noggins are flush to the frontof the door to attach your hinges.

To build this side, make a frame and put astud in the middle.

Repeat the process for the other two frames.

Once you've built your framework, it's timeto put the plastic on.

Wrap your frames in plastic, and fix it off.

Make sure you're wearing gloves, and makesure you attach the plastic to the inside of the frame so it looks nice from the outside.

So now we have all of our sides and our frontwrapped.

It's now time to attach the hinges.

Screw the hinges down to the side joists,and attach your pad bolt to the front.

Now the frame's almost finished.

Attach the frame to the base using bugle screws.

It's a little bit tricky, so you might needan extra pair of hands.

To affix the battens to your roof, arrangethem in descending sizes, so you get run-off on the back.

Transfer your measurements from your greenhouseonto some polycarbonate roofing, mark that with a bit of masking tape, and cut to size.

I'm using a metal blade on a medium settingon a jigsaw to allow for a clean cut.

I have measured mine out with a little bitof overhang at the front and at the back to allow rain to fall off.

The last thing we have to do is to attachour roof to our greenhouse.

We're gonna use some roofing screws to dothat.

Attach your screws into the crest of the corrogate.

You only need to do this every second one.

So, there you have it.

A fantastic little greenhouse.

Let's go and find a place for it in the backyard.

So, we have created our own nice, warm environmentfor all of our plants, turning your garden from this.

To this.

The Green House – VLOG #4 Planting

Hi, my name's Joe FletcherI'm the Set & Lighting Designer I'm Gabriella Slade, theCostume Designer for 'The Green House' This week's Production Week It's when the lighting, set, choreography& costumes all come together.

and we sort of 'plant' the creation.

Joe: We really liked the idea of it beingset in a 1950s – 1960s era We developed the idea for quite alinear architectural structure with a wallpaper design that couldhave references to that particular era.

But also translate forGabi with the costumes, to create a sort of camouflageeffect, walking in to the space.

Gabi: In order for the wallpaper patternto be used in the costumes we got bespoke fabrics printed.

I experimented with changing some of thetones of the background colour and the scales of the print, so that each dancer and each characterhas their own individual quality.

But actually, as a whole setof costumes, they appear as one.

There's a lot of repetition inthe piece so it was important that there were a lot of repeatingdetails within the costumes.

There's the use of dividing lines in the set and also inthe costumes, and pleats are used throughout.

It's really important that within'The Green House' the dancers are camouflagedin the environment.

And when they're out,in the blank space.

they can be vibrantand pop!.

How do we know a tenant will pay rent? – Property Rant 021

Hey, guys.

Property Search.

ThinkGladfish.

I'm Brett Alegre-Wood and this is Property Rant.

So, how do we knowthat a tenant's going to pay the rent? And this is actually probably forbeginner investors because once you've had a few properties and you've had themfor a period of time and you've got.

everything's settled down, you realizethat actually it's very rare that things do go wrong.

And when theydo, if you've got a good agent, you address them, it's not an issue.

So,how do we know they're not going to pay the rent? The reality is we don't.

Wedon't control them, we don't control their lives, we don't control theircircumstances.

The best we can do is provide a property that has good, solidfundamentals.

Shops, schools, transport links, major employers and majorinvestments, you know, that's attractive to the tenant, that's well up kept, thatany problems are sorted out, and if we actually sort that out and we dealwith that stuff, then we're more likely to put ourselves in thebest position possible.

But that doesn't mean thatthey're not going to lose their job, they're not going toget pregnant, fall in love, break up, you know, like all the normallife things that happen that can cause financial strain.

So yes, we can dotenant referencing and we can do all that sort of stuff, but at the end of the day,you cannot control another person.

And you can do the best you possiblycan by getting a.

You know, the real key is getting a really good managingagent because the reality is in my experience of over 20 years is, whensomething's going wrong, it's often not just an isolated incident.

If theydon't pay their rent on time, you know, once, you might let them getaway with.

Second time, you know what? You better be ready to move them outbecause the reality is very rarely do they come back and they pay up and do all thatsort of stuff.

What you'll tend to find is lots of excuses and things like that.

And you can say, "Well, hold on.

But mine's an expensive property in agreat area and all that sort of stuff.

" Things still go wrong for people that livein those houses.

You know, we have just as many things go for expensive propertiesas we do for cheap properties.

Sure, cheap properties, you know, you canget into the housing association and things like that and they present theirown issues.

But if we're talking about vanilla lettings deals, if you like,which are normal mom and dads, families, that sort of stuff, stuffhappens.

You can only put yourself in the best position.

You cannot control theother person.

The important bit is when something does happen like they paythe rent late or they, you know, short pay it or whatever it is, that youhave a managing agent that gets on top of them, gets on top of it quickly and reallymanages that well.

And that is often the determination between having a real painin the arse, excuse the French, or just having a seamless, effortlessthing where yes, you may have to eject them, but you've got everything sorted,you've got everything in order and it just happens and it's in process.

And yeah, youmay have to try and collect some money off of them and you may lose somemoney, that does happen.

So, you can't control them, you know,but you've got to get over that and the reality is we're talking less than3% of the entire lettings.

And we've got over 1,250 properties thathave problems.

And that's any sort of problems from late payments through toactually delinquents through to major damage and things like that.

It's lessthan 3% of the time of the properties.

And obviously, some properties in morelower areas, yeah, that's when you have a lot more problems in those areas whenyou're dealing with a really low.

Low tenants, that's not right.

The low rentalfigures and low property prices because oftentimes, the spec of the propertyisn't as good and things like that.

So, it's not that the people areworse, it's oftentimes that the properties aren't up to the same spec, you know? Butalso, it can be that people down there struggle with money a lot more andthey're living on a more, you know, less than the margin.

Okay, guys,have a great day.

Live with passion.

How Do I Rent Out High Priced Properties? – Real Estate Investing

Joe: Hey everyone, it's Joe Crump.

I've gotanother question here.

Boy, I'm going to kill this name here — Rajav Guktah.

Hopefully,that's pretty close.

Rajav: "The challenge that I'm faced withis simply carrying costs.

Three or four years ago, you could virtually buy any propertyand rent it out for positive cash flow.

" Joe: I'm assuming you're meaning with 100%financing.

Rajav: "This was on account of two primaryfactors.

1) it was prior to the massive appreciation we've seen, and 2) interest rates were lower.

Large amounts of cash to use as down payments are not available to me.

The one investmentproperty that I do own, I purchased by leveraging equity in my primary residence.

The investmenthas done well but I'd like to be able to pick up some new things.

"Joe: Well, first of all, never borrow against your current property (the property you livein) to buy your investments.

Never ever do that.

There's no need to do that.

Don't takethat risk.

You can lose your property.

You can lose the house you're living in.

Peoplesay, 'Well, you've got to take some risks to do investing,' and I agree; you have to.

But you don't have to take that kind of risk.

Protect your house — protect the house thatyou live in.

That's the first order of business.

Joe: You also don't need to go get loans tobuy these properties, and you don't need to wait until you get your next chunk of moneybefore you can put down another down payment and buy another property.

That's just completelywrong thinking.

So don't buy properties that way.

Use creative financing to do it instead.

Joe: The way that you find people that will do creative financing is by using marketingthat works.

So use the right type of classified ads.

Use the right type of internet marketing.

Build lists of buyers.

Build lists of sellers.

Build lists of investors, and you'll be ableto use this stuff.

And by building a list, what I'm talking about is an online databaseof these people.

It's not difficult to do if you have the right software and the rightknowledge.

Joe: You just need to learn this process.

You can get all of this stuff from my "Push Button Method".

That's at PushButtonMethod.

Com.

You can learn how to build those systems and how to build those marketing tactics.

Joe: But even if you've got none of that stuff, you can put a sign out in the yard that says,'I'll buy your home.

' Or, 'I'll make a guaranteed offer on your home in 24 hours' and your phonenumber.

You'll put deals together using that if you put them in the right places.

Joe: Do it handwritten.

Do it on cardboard.

Do it on Coroplast.

Don't make them fancy.

Don't spend money on these signs.

These signs should cost you two bucks.

You can get a pieceof cardboard for 90 cents and you can get a couple of grape stakes or tomato stakesand staple them on there, get the yellow cardboard and write on there in black, 'I'll Make AnOffer On Your Home Today' and your phone number, or, 'Guaranteed Offer On Your Home In 24 Hours.

'Joe: These are great ads and they will work.

Make sure you put them into high traffic areas.

They won't stay up very long, but they'll work.

Joe: Now, there are a lot of other things that will work and that'll also be very effectiveif you get into some of these more advanced techniques that I teach.

Joe: Just get started.

Just do something.

Just take action on what you're doing andyou're going to make money.

Anyway, good luck to you and keep buying properties.

Don't letit stop you.

Joe: I don't think I answered the question,though, because you asked about the values going up.

When the values go up on a property,one of the things that you can do to sell that property is to sell it on a lease withan option to buy.

Now, instead of renting the property, you're selling it, so the buyertakes a whole new perspective from this property.

Joe: Let me give you an example of a propertyin California that I had.

This was back in the 80's actually.

It was $495,000 if I rememberright, and it had a payment on there, because the interest rates were very high at the time,of $4,300 a month.

Now, you can go rent a house like this for about 27-2800$ at thetime, and I had to figure out a way to get that payment covered, because I either hadto sell the property, and I had the problem of selling the property because the marketwas going soft on me, so I had to find a way to get that thing covered because at the timeI had the loan in my name.

That was crazy; that was a crazy time.

But I did it.

Joe: Anyway, so I had to get that payment covered.

So I went out and sold it on a leasewith an option to buy.

I told the guy, 'Look, you're making payments on this property thatcosts you $4,300 a month so you're going to need to make payments on this property thesame as if you were buying it.

And if you can't make that payment, you can't affordthis property.

' So he saw the logic to it, he bought the property, he's making $4,300payments, and he eventually exercised his option and took it over.

How to sell your house – Part 1: Price is more than just a number from a CMA or AVM

Pricing your home effectively is one ofthe most important things you do when preparing to sell your home.

There is no magic formula.

But you don'thave a system you might as well pick a number out ofthe sky and consult a Magic 8-Ball.

This is the first in a three-part series where we're gonna talk about price.

The other two coming up are Competitionand Condition.

Stay tuned to our channel, subscribe below, and makesure you get onto those as soon as we publish them.

This video though willfocus on that five hundred-pound gorilla [animal scream] inthe room and that's Price.

Everybody wants to talk aboutprice.

Everybody has an opinion on price.

We're also gonna talk about thedifference between an AVM or Automated Value Model and a CMA orComparative Market Analysis.

We're gonna discuss the fundamentals ofprice and value and who determines which.

And we're going totalk about your choices as a seller.

There's a lot of talk today, from the bigNational Association of Realtors all the way down to the local level, totalk about accuracy matter.

Accurate data matters.

That'strue.

That's important, but trusting that one exclusive source that whether it'san AVM or a CMA, I don't care where it came from, trusting one source above all others isa mistake.

Take all the information, all the datathat you can pull in, and then make a human decision.

Take that [data] and do what we call is agut-check check.

Does it make sense? Is it accurate? Is itrelevant? Is it realistic? We'll get into all that in a minute butfirst I want to make sure that we touch on one important thing.

And that's establishing the basicfundamentals of an open marketplace.

Not real estate, specifically, but an open marketplaceanywhere.

[Question] Who sets the price? [Answer] That's the person with the product or providing theservice.

That's the person who has the thing that people want to buy.

[Question] Who sets the value? [Answer] The market sets thevalue.

The buyer sets the value.

The personwilling to pay you or pay someone for that product or service is the onewho sets the value.

Do yourself a favor and get someone in the door that understands how the market works, not how a computer program works, how price is established and value is establishedand the relationship between the two.

When it comes to setting price for a home two terms generally come out and that'sit an AVM and a CMA The AVM is an AutomatedValuation Model.

You don't hear this quite as much, it's alittle bit more of an "inside baseball" thing.

But most people will have heard of a CMA, a comparative market analysis.

Now whatthat is and what the AVM is, they're basicallythe same thing.

They take data from listings that haveeither sold or withdrawn or on the market currently.

They pull them in and they do someaveraging they do some medium pricing and then they spit out a number.

They giveyou a bunch of nice fancy charts and all kinds of other different things.

But they're all basically the same thing.

Everybody uses an AVM or a CMA whether or not they realize it or not.

There are those that you pay for.

There arethose that come with your MLS.

Even some agencies and brokerages havetheir own model.

There are some famous AutomatedValuation Models out there like the one from Zillow called a Zestimate.

And just like the Zestimate, everyAutomated Valuation Model that is used by agent or anybody elsehas its limitations.

It has its pluses and it hasits minuses.

So what you have is a couple situations:one is you have an agent who just uses their system exclusively.

Whether it's through their MLS or through theircompany or they pay for it, whatever.

They just use whatever number comes outof the machine.

And they go with that.

Because that's what's on the printedpage and that's what they're gonna present to you.

When they sit down for their half hourlong listing presentation about how wonderful they are.

[clapping] The second type a situation that you'relikely to find is the agent who does all that samestuff that the first one does but now they just make arbitrary changesto the numbers just because they don't want to seem like they're following acomputer model.

There's no real fact or analysis or anyother type thing behind it.

They just don't want to have the exactsame number.

So they'll go up or down, sometimes only a matter of a couple hundreddollars.

But just so that seems like they're incharge of this thing and "well that computer is exactly what it'scracked up to be.

But I'm the one you need hire because I'm alittle bit smarter than the computer.

Now the really bad situation that youwant to avoid are the agents that cook the books.

They're the ones that inflate the price of the house in order to entice you as a seller to go withthem.

They just want to get the listing thenthey're gonna beat the crap outta you for the next couple months about trying to lower the price.

But it's notthe agent and it's not you who determines thatvalue.

The buyer does.

The market does.

So the first step in theprocess is to Gather Data.

Include your local MLS becausethere is information in there that just quite frankly isn't available anywhereelse.

[For instance] you can get information about sellerconcessions.

So just because the sales price was X amount of dollars thesellers kicked in 10 grand on seller subsidies to help the buyerswith closing costs.

Now what that does is that, in effect,means that they got a lesser price for their home.

It doesn't show up onthe sales price because that's not how it's financed not how it works out in the end.

But thenet back to the seller is less.

You as a seller need to understand that it'syour net that's most important not the price.

There are a lotof things that happen after that initial agreement on price that can pull money away from you.

Thenext is competition.

You have to know the competition.

Nowcompetition isn't just the ones [homes] that are on themarket right now or under contract right now.

It's everything.

It's the listings that sold, that's competitionfolks because everybody's looking at that.

Your buyers across the other end of thetable are looking at the solds as well in order to tabulate calculatethe offer that they're going to make.

So youneed to look at that too.

That's your competition.

The next placeto look are those big/nasty/mean portals that everybody likes to talk about.

That's your Zillow and your Trulia andyour Realtor.

Com in any other one that you can think of.

You've probablyalready been there and run Zestimate or some other typeup Automated Valuation Model to see what your home is worth in orderto prepare yourselves for selling.

Guess what? Buyers are doing the samething! Now they [AVMs] may be way off the mark butthat doesn't mean they're not important.

You need to pull them in.

You're in gather dataphase not analysis phase.

You're better off having it.

Not needingit, than needing it and not having it.

Next up is seeking input.

No one knows everythingabout every neighborhood in every step town or every area.

You can't! It's impossible.

Thatmeans talking to appraisers.

That means talking to inspectors.

That means talkingto other people in the area.

Neighbors, agents who have sold otherhomes in that area, agents who have rented other homes inthat area, is there a special assessment that affects this property versus some of the others.

Two almost identical houses in two different neighborhoods:one has a special assessment and one does not.

It means it costs more live at one then theother.

The last portion is a gut-check.

This is the mostimportant piece of all of this.

Does it pass the sniff test? Did we missanything? Take a look at all the things that youpulled in to try and figure out, does this even seem right? Am I.

Does this just seem way low? Does it seem way high? Does this seem right? Do wehave all the information we need in order to make a decision? When I wasin Baghdad in 2008, I had an intelligence officer cometo me recommending that we take this certain bridge with our convoy to get across the TigrisRiver.

He saw that is the best option.

I saw itis a pretty terrible option because our United States Air Forceeliminated that bridge from existence in 2003.

[jet noise.

Explosion!!!] You need to have that got check andyou need to go ask somebody before you go making recommendations that are way off the mark.

The next stepafter gathering all the data is analyzing the data.

Now is when youstart to see some patterns emerge.

You start to see some price ranges.

Youstart to see some commonalities, some features you start to see thatcertain home start to be priced a certain way.

And when they're priced a certain way theysell in a certain time frame.

Now is when you start to develop yourCourses Of Action, your COAs.

Condition and Competition are criticaland again we're gonna talk about those in future videos.

But if the comparable properties, from acertain time frame at a certain price were of far worse condition or farbetter condition then the home that you're trying to sell,that's going to have an impact on the price that you establish and the value that the market is willingto pay.

You are analyzing the data for relevance.

Are you using the comp rules that youshould be? Is there a neighborhood or a home or a set of homesthat you just missed? A very relevant situation here inLoudon County are is the new home construction versus the very recent construction, so you couldhave a neighborhood it's only 4 or 5 years oldcompared to a new home right down the road.

The market couldperceive more value by getting custom features built to suit than a home that is already built and hasthe features that you like and not necessarily the ones that they want.

Afteryou gather the data and analyze the data, it's time for us tomake a recommendation.

Our goal is to give you the information,education, and advice you need in order to make the best decisions.

We're gonna give you a Course Of Action that we think is the main one that youshould focus on based on what we know.

Today.

But we're alsogonna give you some options that show you what might happen if.

Ifthis happens, than that.

If this happens, then you needto do that.

If you'd like this you need to do that.

We're gonna give me some options.

So make sure that you understand thatthere are pluses and minuses for pricing high and pricing low.

The choice is ultimatelyyours but I would caution you not to pick the agent that just comes in with the highestprice.

Every decision has Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities and Threats.

[SWOT Analysis] Understand the full big picture and hiresomebody that can help you understand that andmaybe point out some things you haven't thought of.

You are paying for maximum effort andexceptional results.

Why settle for average? Why settle forthe agents who are gonna sit back, rely on one system, generate a number, pump that out to you, cross your fingers,set it, forget it, post and pray, sit back andsee what happens? There is no secret sauce.

There is nosecret family recipe.

It's all about understanding thefundamentals.

Understanding the relationship between Price and Value.

Gathering the best data.

Analyzing thatdata making sure that it's accurate andrelevant.

And then making recommendations based on what is best for you.

Giving youthe information, education, and advice to enable you to make great decisions.

That's our purpose here.

and thank you for watching this video,the first of three.

[sad music playing and high squeaky altered voice] so.

Several things that interrupted our shooting tonight and have taken.

Uh.

Us into.

[normal voice] It's after one o'clock in the morning and we're still here shooting because well.

I don't quit.

That's just not in ournature.

so have any other agents are willing todo that?!?.

[blooper reel] has an opinion on what a home to should.

Dang it! Ahhh! [not really on the phone but doing my best Harpo Marx impression] [frustrated] ok.

[walk like an Egyptian?] That after all is what you want.

You want to be able tomake.

I don't wanna tell you what you want! [I want you to tell me what you want!] Please like & share! Don't keep us a secret.

Thank you! Good night.

However, thereare some good options for such buyers, one being the "rent to own houses" option.

Although the renters are required to pay a certain amount higher than the standard rent,that amount will later add up to his credit and will be used at the time of buying thehouse.

There are certain pros and cons to rent toown houses.

For example, if a buyer fails to buy a property at the end of the lease,he wouldn't get back the extra amount he paid for the rent.

Besides that, some rent to ownhomes agreement are designed in such a way that the tenant is obliged to buy the houseat any cost at the end of the lease.

How to Sell Your House – Part 2: Condition is more than just paint & flowers

Homes in great to excellent conditionsell on average 18 days faster than the competition andat a higher price and with less price reductions.

But thisvideo is not about how to clean, how to put out fresh flowers,where to put throw pillows, and how to arrange furniture.

This videois about why condition is so important what youcan do about it.

Our goal here is to give you informationeducation and advice to make you powerful, smart, informed realestate consumers.

So much attention is given to make sureyou paint this, make sure that is fixed, open thewindows, turn on the lights.

All those things in you should do butthey're not the thing really connects with the people whoare going to buy your house.

The ones you need to connect with, you don'tconnect with them through paint color, you don't connect with him throughcenterpieces on dining room tables.

You connect with him through anexperience that you take them through while they are at your home.

One of the first things you want to dowhen you're preparing your home for sale and dealing with something like thecondition of your home is to have a level of expectationmanagement.

You want to understand what you can doand what you can't.

Every home has defects every home hasflaws.

Every home has positive features andevery home has negative features.

You can't fix everything.

Everything doesn't end on the day that you put the house onthe market.

The budget and time that you set aside has to address those thingsthat you're gonna do prior to market, during market, and alsothose things are going to come up via inspections or appraisals.

Especially if there's things like FHA and VA which have specific requirements that you need to fix certain things orthe buyer can't get the loan thus you had no deal and you have no sale.

The initial push is really where youwanna put the most attention and effort but you don't want to be caught offguard in the back and by something.

Well I recommend that you as a sellerget an inspection prior to.

You signed a contract, you've agreed on a price,you've agreed on terms.

You're moving through the process.

You got that home inspection addendum hanging overyou.

This now is a stressful moment becauseyou don't know what the inspector is gonna find if you haven't done one already.

You don't know what's gonna come up.

Youhave no idea what it's going to cost you to fix some of these things.

If you've done that inspection on the frontend, you know you have a really good idea.

The likelihood of finding some gee-whiz, wow, oh that's gonna cost means thousands of dollars or cost me thissale, the likelihood of that happening is dramatically reduced by getting aninspection in the front end.

Another person to bring any give you somehelp is a stager.

To give you a perspective on your homethat you don't have.

Don't expect most buyers to be SherlockHolmes and be able to find every wonderful thing about your house.

Show it to them! Show the existing features, demonstratethe potential, and allow them to picture themselvesliving in the home.

If you have a vacant home or you have a partially vacant home, oryou have some empty rooms and you really don't know what to do:rather than just take a picture of an empty room and post that, why not ask a stager or designed to giveyou a sketch? What would they do there? This is whatthis room could look like, this is what this house could look like.

and don't just hope that the buyer has acreative mind I can see past the emptiness up that particular space orthat house.

You need to appeal to all five senseswithin those first five seconds where buyer walks inthe door and takes no more than five steps.

Buyers are alert and in tune with their sensesimmediately when they walk in the door.

They're looking for triggers.

Homeshowings don't just happen at random.

You have time to prepare for thesethings.

You pull out those bottles of water.

You pull out those cold Coca Cola's youbrew that pot of coffee.

You take those muffins in put them inthe toaster oven or microwave for a second.

Ann what you do is now you startto appeal to their senses of taste and smell.

If you have an area like abreakfast nook or you have a place with a great view, have a nice little table set up encouragethem to go there with it or that's where you put the said refreshment.

Be creative aboutthat and welcome folks into your home and allow themto have a little moment while they are visiting your home tofeel like they are living there.

You get thethermostat set right.

If it's in the wintertime, you crank it up a little bit to get alittle bit warm in there.

If it's in the summer time, you crank it down a littlebit to get it a little bit cool in there.

You want to demonstrate that this houseis a very comfortable place to live in.

If it gets a nice cross breeze duringcertain times a year, open up the windows and allow that to happen.

So you allow that feel you you get thatinitial feel when you walk in that this is a comfortable place to live.

Sound is easy.

It's so easy to go around today withsmall portable radios, and a lot of houses are already wired for soundanyway.

Sight is a lot more than keeping thingsclean and turning on your lights.

Sight is about directing your buyers towhere you want them to go in an order in which you want them to go.

Tell them where to start & where to stop.

where to go what to look for when they'rethere.

Think a little bit like Alice inWonderland as you're bringing buyers to your house.

Have little signs that say, "touch this" "feelthis" "pull this" "open this.

" Lead buyers on atour of your house, instead of having them wander around andyou hoping that they come across the thingsthat are great about your house.

getting your home in selling conditionis far more that taking your family photosdown off the wall, putting a buncha stuff in storage and repainting your bedroom.

If the prettiest, nicest, best maintained house in theneighborhood goes for sale all week after you put your house on the market, are youprepared to compete? Understand what the expectations are,have a budget and a time line.

Always continually improve your situation and improve your home throughout theentire process.

Hire an inspector.

Hire a stagerand create that guided toward to allow buyers to see themselves in the home.

And appeal to all five senses within five seconds and the first fivesteps that buyers walk into your house.

Delight them.

Wow them.

From hey this is nice, "to wow I have to havethis!" Put those aspects together and your homeis in the best condition that it can be and dominate your local market so youget maximum money, shortest amount of time, least amount ofhassles.

And here, now, Dan Jourdan.

Hey Guys, it's Dan Jourdan,the sales energizer with another CBT Saturday Morning Meeting, baby! Let's go get 'em! It'sa big day today.

Not cause you're gonna go out there and crush people like that.

You'regonna go out and serve more people today.

You know, the people that earn the most moneyin the world always, are the people that serve the most amount of people.

Today, on thisSaturday, baby that's you! Let's go get 'em! I gotta tell you this story.

I learned thisfrom my son.

You've gotta figure out what they're buying and sell what they're buying!Don't sell what they're not buying.

And most of the things you learn in life, you learnfrom watching them.

In my case, I watch my kids.

I gotta a good boy.

He's a good boy!He's sixteen years old now but he's got deep, like dyslexic issues.

But we love it! It hasturned him into the person that he is.

When he was 11 years old, we kinda figured outthings are going on like this.

But it was great! He has such interest in other things.

We hadthis big storm around my neighborhood.

Trees are down.

Cars are all mangled.

Carpets arein the streets.

So, we're walking around the neighborhood because it was fun.

And Matthewlooks at the carpet on the ground and he looks at me, and says "Daddy, I bet you they'd payus 100 bucks to take that to the dump.

" He's thinking about business.

The next thing Iknow, he's knocking on the door.

I've got a load of carpet in the back of my truck andwe're off to the dump! And he made a 100 dollars! I go, "this is crazy!" He started a littlebusiness.

And his first day out, he was putting out flyers.

He was knocking on doors.

Andpeople were giving him, like old couches and chairs and lawn mowers.

And the lawn mowerswere made out of metal.

What do you think you do with that? He'd take them to the recyclingand get paid again! His first day out, he made two hundred and fifty dollars! He's eleven!I said, Matthew this is crazy! How do you do this? And he looked at me as only an 11-yearold can and said, "Daddy, you don't understand.

" And I'm looking at you, the car sales persontoday and saying, "you don't understand.

" He says, "you think they're giving me theseold couches and lawn mowers cause they want to get rid of these couches and lawn mowers.

Daddy, they're getting rid of this stuff and they're giving it to me because it makes themfeel good to do business with an eleven-year old.

Doesn't it?" You see, he knows his value!Do you know yours? Cause, I promise you, it's not the paint.

It's not the cup holders.

Ormaybe it's the cup holders.

But it's not all those things that you're thinking about.

You're selling an experience! They're gonna go home and talk to each other and they'regonna sit around at the kitchen table and say, "you know what? That was great! I feelreally good about that experience.

I love this car and I love the sales person evenmore.

I know they're gonna be there in the future.

" You're selling something more valuablethan the car.

You're selling peace of mind.

And it's cause that's what they're buying.

And Matthew knows it.

He said to me, after getting this done with Daddy, I felt liketwo years in the future and it's over.

Well, you've got a whole life.

You've got a wholelife to dominate.

Today! Take these ideas.

Take your energy! And just KILL IT with service!CBT News Saturday Morning Saturday Morning Sales Meeting, brought to you by Zurich.
