Episode 146 | 10 Reasons Why You’re NOT Rich Yet

Happy Podcast Day folks! Aside from growing our moustaches for Movember, this week we’ve also been growing a ripper episode for you **drum roll please** …

Today, we’re giving you the 10 Reasons Why You’re Not Rich Yet!!!

(Now, we’ll be honest, we’re not huge fans of the word “rich” — we prefer the term ‘financially free’, but you get the gist.)

So why haven’t you got the money you thought you’d have by now? When is the suitcase of cash finally going to land at your feet? Is it something you might be doing/not doing?

Yep, this one just might make you have a long, hard look at yourself (in a nurturing way, of course).  Because there are TEN reasons — a few of which you might be doing now — that are blocking your shot at financial freedom.

 

Speaking of finances, if you help us donate to Movember with a $25 donation or more we will give you a FREE SIGNED COPY OF OUR BEST SELLER BOOK! Yep, we’ll cover the cost of the postage and, guess what … The book’s worth more than $25. AND donations above $2 are tax deductible! 3 wins. You, a good cause and us MoBros!!

How do you do it?

  1. Go to our Mo’s Team Page here and donate $25 or more.
  2. Once you’ve done it, let us know by commenting on this Facebook Post here.
  3. We’ll send you the book. Easy!

AND if we hit our target of raising $5,000 for Movember, Ben has promised to create a FREE WEBINAR on Working Out Your Retirement Gap! But we need to hit the $5,000 mark to make him prioritise this. Remember, it’s for a great cause (and you get to see the guys look ridiculous for another 2 weeks)!

 

Alright, where’s the money at? (What you can expect in today’s show.)

 

Remember: Money’s not everything. And you can experience huge wealth in helping others! Donate to Movember here.

Episode 145 | 8 Reasons Why Vendors Sell Before Auction

Now… it’s Framework Time!! The last framework that we’ve unpacked was Episode 137 on Tips for Buying in Spring so we think we are a little overdue for another one.

The topic that we’ll be chatting about today doesn’t happen all the time, of course, but it does happen: Vendors sell BEFORE they go to auction.

Have you ever wondered why??

Today, we’re exploring some of the main reasons explaining an early sell in this situation. Because if you’re selling (side note: hopefully you’ve received professional advice about this), it pays to know which tactics could be lurking around the corner for you. Of course, if you’re interested in buying property, it saves to know how to negotiate a win before the bidding has had a chance to begin!

 

So, is selling before auction as clear-cut as we might think?

Yep, today we’re digging into the heart of it:

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.
