In his latest book, The Real Deal: How to Make Money Selling Real Estate, former Real Estate Guru John Stumpf says his book was an essential reference for realtours looking to make money selling real estate.
“If you are not making money selling, and you have no business or experience in real estate, then you can get into a lot of trouble.
You will be out of your depth,” he said.
Stumpf, who founded the Real Estate Academy in 1997 and is now the founder of real estate firm Stumpff Real Estate Partners, says he has had some success selling properties.
He’s seen some of the biggest deals in the industry.
In 2003, he sold the $1.2 billion mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, to a man who was looking to turn it into a condo, and he’s sold homes in Miami, Orlando, and Las Vegas.
He also sold the home of one of his mentors in Miami in 2013 for $6 million.
“It’s been a big success.
And I don’t have to sell the properties anymore.
I just do a little bit of research and I go back to the original listing,” he says.
Stumping says the only advice he ever gives his clients is to be patient.
“You don’t need to be on top of everything.
You just need to understand the process and see if you can figure out a way to make it work.
If it doesn’t work, then the process is not working,” he explains.
But it’s not easy.
Stumps book sold about 1,400 copies.
His goal is to sell 2,000 books, and sell those books to as many people as possible.
He says he’s had success with the sales of one book that sold out.
Stumped says real estate is about the people, not the properties.
“There is a lot more to real estate than what you see in the commercials.
There is a whole world out there that you are never going to see,” he told CNNMoney.
Real estate experts and brokers agree that there are many, many things to consider before you make a decision on a real estate deal.
But if you want to make a lot out of the business, you need to think about everything.
