It takes at least as much knowledge and strategy to sell a property at the right time, as it does to buy—maybe more! Many real estate investors hold their property far too long. As their equity grows, the rate of return on that equity falls. This session demonstrates that property owners can greatly boost the rate of return – and increase their wealth – by moving the equity from their current property to one, or more, new properties. It's a powerful way to increase listings, plus make more sales.
