But the Commission is a Whopper!!

Fill in the real estate commission rate (typically 6-8%), your home value, and the amount owed on your mortgage in the calculator to reveal the true cost of selling your home and how much equity you are losing if you decide to pay commission to a real estate agent.

“Brilliant!...Sissy Lappin's admirable obsession with saving money has produced a gold mine.”             Jim Trippon, best-selling author of Stay Rich Forever

I started this program for people with absolutely no experience. There is no mystique in what a real estate agent does; the only requirement is common sense. Consider me a voice of reason, a friend with more than two decades as a specialist in the real estate market talking to you through this program and helping you discover a way to take charge and save money. If you want to know just how much money, try the commission calculator on this page. 6% of your home equity is nothing to laugh at, and every real estate agent know that.

Times have changed. Methods have changed. You have a choice: you can either sell your home using a real estate agent or do it your self and save thousands of dollars.

Maybe your grandparents and parents had real estate agents handle their home sales. But that was before the invention of the amazing Internet. Because of the Internet, buyers and sellers can find each other easily and directly. All the information you need to sell a home is now available online through this website and the SIMPLE & SOLD program.

When an agent sells your home, you are a spectator in the process. By selling your home yourself, using the book and its online resources, you will be in charge of the process - and that's a great feeling!

If Simple and Sold doesn’t give you great advice for selling your home, we’ll gladly refund every penny immediately.
