A few years ago we were desperately trying to sell our house, which was situated on a busy thoroughfare. Our real estate agent decided to have open-house inspection nearly every day to promote the sale. We instructed the children not to talk to anyone about the house.
I learned a great marketing lesson from a man who bought an old boat, a trailer and a motor from me.
“Thanks,” he said as he loaded them up on his truck. “I’m planning to resell them.”
“Good luck,” I thought. I had been trying to get rid of them for months. But when I ran into him a few weeks later, he had sold everything.
