The Book Only Craig Ackerman Could Write

(Length: 3:34)

Trust home sales tips for San Francisco attorneys & trustees

Faster sale, higher return

In his 2016 book, Craig shares his program for turning outdated, time-worn properties into desirable homes that profit the estate. Unlike a traditional as-is trust home sale, his entrepreneurial approach produces a dramatically faster sale and higher return.

He focuses on three simple but powerful concepts:

  • identify the expected buyer demographics
  • refresh the home to match those buyers’ lifestyle preferences (producing a 200% to 500% ROI)
  • create a marketing plan that creates urgent competition for the home

Stories and photos

You’ll get insights from six of Craig’s favorite San Francisco home sales. The tenant whose Burning Man costumes made it hard to show the home. The charming seller who spoke little English. And the experts Craig brought in to help sell a cable car-inspired home.

Find out the small steps that make big impact on the sale. See the high-return home transformations in 60 full-color before and after photos.
