Thank You

Hi, my name is Andrew Duncan, and I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my site.

I realise you are short on time and at this stage you are probably trying to find the information you need to make a good real estate decision without subjecting yourself a sales pitch, endless phone calls from desperate real estate agents, constant emails with info on new properties that don’t interest you, or all of the above.

So instead, I am here to help you get what you need, and avoid all the B.S.

Here you will get unlimited access with no obligation to genuinely helpful tips and info on pitfalls to avoid that will help you save thousands when you decide to buy or sell your home. I want to give you this advice without any expectation in return so there is no risk it will be mistaken for a manipulative sales pitch, and all the more chance that you will take on board what is said. I am tired of seeing people lose money on their biggest asset by making poor real estate decisions through a lack of understanding of how the real estate market works.

How can you be expected to know everything about real estate when it’s your turn to move?

Most people only buy or sell every 7 years. That’s where I want to help you. Buying and selling is a complicated process fraught with potholes, risks, bad apples (yes there are still quite a few out there) and unforeseen disasters that can cost you thousands. You need to know how to avoid the biggest mistakes that most people make before you get started.

Below are links to my most popular posts. All articles are short, to-the-point, and hopefully easy to read with no built-in sales pitch or “look at me aren’t I wonderful, I sold 42 million houses!” B.S.

If you like one of the articles below please feel free to share it with your friends and let us know your thoughts.

Happy house hunting!
