Like him or hate him Floyd Mayweather, Jr knows how to win and make lots and lots of money! With an undefeated record of 48-0 Floyd Mayweather, Jr will go down as one of the greatest boxer ever. While many analysts agree he’s not a top 10 all time boxer, there’s no doubt he knows how to get the job done.
Here are five things Floyd Mayweather, Jr can teach us about selling a home.
The big Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight everyone craved was years in the making. Had the fight occurred five years ago, Mayweather would’ve lost roughly $150 million! By waiting for the right time, he was able to create more money than his great-great-great-great-great grandkids will need. When it comes to selling your home timing matters. You might not have the luxury of waiting, but if you do, seek the advice of your trusted agent to know the best time to list your home.
Mayweather did his homework on Pacquiao. He knew every move, every habit, and every tendency Pacquiao had in the ring. He knew his opponent inside and out. There was nothing that surprised Mayweather when he stepped in the ring. Just like Mayweather, you should seek to educate yourself on the buying and selling process of a home. Ask questions, find out how things work and don’t be afraid to explore angles your agent might not have thought about. Don’t only rely on your agent to do the work for you. Being an educated seller can give you an advantage when teaming up with your agent.
Mayweather spent countless hours in the gym getting ready for the “Fight of the Century”. Not only did he go through all the known boxing drills to man, but he also prepared himself with his meals. It’s been reported that he spent up to $1,000 on special made meals leading up to the fight. We aren’t suggesting you go spend $1,000 on dinner, but not preparing your home for an upcoming sale is a major mistake. Make sure your house is neat, orderly and staged properly to attract the most buyers.
While this fight may seem like two guys duking it out, it actually represents dozens of people in each camp. Mayweather has a team of trainers, chefs, nutritionists, advisors, promoters, drivers, and bodyguards. He readily admits he wouldn’t be where he is if it wasn’t for the careful consideration of the people he surrounds himself with. While you don’t need this many people in order to sell your house, it is important to pick the right agent who has a team that surrounds them. This could be the difference is selling your house right away or it sitting on the market for months.
Mayweather knew his strengths and weaknesses going into the fight. A couple of his biggest strengths are his elusiveness and defense. Rarely did Pacquiao get straight, clean shots on Mayweather. Mayweather knows what he’s good at and he used that to win the fight. You to should know the strong selling points of your house and use those to attract the best would be buyer.
