Episode 137 | Spring Buying Tips | How to Negotiate A Deal During This Selling Season

Spring has sprung! And it’s the selling season, indeed. Properties look more beautiful — the lawn is luscious, the sun’s out, there are flowers all around … these all tickle your emotions, charming a lot of buyers to come out and bid. And pay an emotional price too — a lot more than the property is worth!

So how do you make sure you knock out all the competition AND still buy the property at a price you can afford?

In this episode, the boys explain the 7 tips to Buying in Spring to make sure you, as a property investor, succeed!

 

Bryce and Ben discuss:

  • Why is Spring the selling season?
  • The importance of a vendor’s motivations and which ones could get you a cheaper price (you can listen to The Four D Words here)
  • What to look out for before you make an offer
  • How AND when to make a knockout offer
  • How to outsmart a real estate agent by not being smart
  • What do you need to say to a real estate agent?
  • What type of buyer do you need to be in Spring?
  • When does the negation actually start and how do you negotiate to win?
  • What to do (and what to not do) at Open For Inspections
  • How do you find out what a property is really worth?
  • The power of having a Plan B and why you need it in a negotiation?
  • First Home Buyer Tips and how real estate agents use your words against you.
