First, the Bad News. There is a good chance the buyer if your home will be a great negotiator.
If you don’t know anything about negotiating, you risk having them take advantage of you.
Now for the Good News. This book reveals how an average negotiator can avoid being taken advantage of by a better negotiator.
There are two things that determine
who wins a negotiation.
· The motivation of the people negotiating.
· The skill they have or do not have to negotiate.
Here is a story that plays out every day, all across America. This happens over and over again.
There is a good chance this could happen to you.

Don’t let this happen to you!
