2. Don’t Get Drawn into a Conversation About It

“Then the previous owner accidentally stabbed himself in the back. 11 times. And the stove top is real marble.”

Okay, so what’s a polite way to explain that, should anyone move in, their daughter’s head might spin 360 degrees and she’ll spew green vomit?

You cannot prove that your house is not haunted, because like I said, it’s in their perception,” Mark says, “so there is no point carrying on a conversation about that.

If someone passed away in the room, if there was a suicide, then admit it. But you can quickly change topic. You can tell people that ‘Yes, it was a very sad thing.’ But then you instantly move on to real issues, like the amenities, the finishings, the good value.”

Mark believes there’s a “mirroring response“. The less agitated your answers, the less nervous the buyer or tenant will be.

3. Hire Ghost Busters

There are actual ghost busters in Singapore. And before you start cracking Stay Puft Marshmallow Man jokes, these professionals are respected for their services.

“Maybe you believe, maybe you don’t believe,” Mark says, “But if your spirituality permits, you can hire them to cleanse the house.

Your agent can tell future tenants or buyers that the ritual has been conducted. This is reassuring to some of them, whatever your own opinions are.”

As an alternative, you can get Feng Shui consultants to arrange the interior. Whatever the case, remember point 2: do not overplay it.

Don’t talk about it like it was a big deal, and don’t dramatise it. If you had the cleansing done, mention it and immediately move on. The best strategy is still not to prolong conversation about these issues.”

Indian Markers: Entered into Consolidation Zone?

Markets are in consolidation mood, no near term triggers witnessed.    
The Nifty continued its losing momentum from couple of trading sessions. We believe that the present market behavior is in contrast to what witnessed in the last 12 months. We also observed that Intra-day rallies are being sold into and positive news flow is unable to sustain the markets at higher levels.
As far as this month is concerned, certain positive news like

  1. The Fed’s dovish message on interest rate.
  2. Lower-than-expected WPI data.
  3. The budget session of parliament has been the most productive in a decade with most of the important bills passed except for the Land Acquisition Bill too failed to enthuse markets. 

We think that This weakness on account of year-end considerations, including taxation. Unseasonable rains have caused extensive damage to farm produce and there is fear that government measures including possible loan waivers could be viewed negatively by many investors. The upcoming results for March quarter could be weaker than the earlier December quarter and could spook markets further. Some macros are also not supportive like IIP and PMI.
There will not be many triggers in the foreseeable future other than corporate results. The next big trigger could be monsoon, which is expected to be normal this year. As markets drift, they will tire out investors and fence-sitters will prefer to wait a while longer. The volatility leading to a whipsaw market movement has made it difficult for traders too. The period of easy money seems to be over.

Ever since the Canada Anti-Spam Law (CASL) went into effect on July 1, 2014, the email marketing community has been a bit on edge to see what kinds of regulatory enforcement actions and fines might be imposed on entities caught infringing on the law.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), the regulatory agency tasked with enforcing the law, has stressed from the get-go that the agency only intends to levy fines against the most egregious offenders, not companies that make small missteps.

So when earlier this month the CRTC slapped a $1.1 million fine on Compu-Finder, a Quebec-based company that offers business training courses, reactions ranged from sighs of relief to quiet under-the-breath “uh-ohs.”

On the one hand, marketers were spooked because the first judgment came down not on some shady offshore entity hawking Cialis tabs, but a legitimate company with established roots in the Canadian marketplace.

On the other hand, it quickly became evident that Compu-Finder was engaging in seriously flawed email practices. In the announcement of the ruling, the CRTC said it found Compu-Finder guilty of four violations of CASL, and it noted that 26% of the industry-specific complaints to its Spam Reporting Centre were related to the company.
