Real Estate Veteran Offers Home Seller’s Blues Cure

Portland, OR, August 31, 2010 – With existing U.S. home sales diving to 15-year lows and millions of homes stagnant on the market, home sellers are suffering increasing anxiety, uncertainty and financial stress. To address these symptoms, motivational author Joan Gale Frank has published, “Home Seller’s Blues (And How to Beat Them.)”

“This is the first book of its kind to cheer people on and up when their home isn’t selling,” says Frank, a long-time real-estate investor domestically and abroad. “It also provides hundreds of practical tips on how to sell a home faster using buyer/seller psychology.”

When her own Arizona home didn’t sell for a year, Frank gathered extensive home selling advice from top real estate experts, home stagers, landscape artists, psychologists and marketing whizzes. Her research paid off. Frank said “I was able to pinpoint potential buyers and appeal directly to them, which helped sell my house faster. I also discovered how to be happy instead of miserable while waiting for a buyer.”

“Home Seller’s Blues” was created to share Frank’s findings with other frustrated home sellers. It features comprehensive home selling tips, including quick, inexpensive ways to make a house memorable, how to attract more buyers, finding the best Realtor, win/win pricing, easy ways to get a house ready to show in minutes, and identifying little problems that cause home rejection.

Several chapters of the book are dedicated to overcoming negative emotions ranging from fear and frustration to insomnia and helplessness. The book also emphasizes how to enjoy life during the entire home selling experience. “Ms. Frank’s insights into the emotions, psychology and real estate strategies of home selling are right on,” says Alexis Halmy, Portland, Oregon Realtor.

“Home Seller’s Blues” is available for $9.99 at the Apple iBookstore, on Amazon’s Kindle, and at Frank also provides inspiration and often humorous home selling advice on her blog,
