Episode 327 | Winning A HOT Property Market (Part 3) – The Step-By-Step Process!

The final part of our mini-series: “The Step-By-Step Process To Win In A HOT Property Market” has landed!

Just in case you missed it…

LAST TWO WEEKS ON THE PROPERTY COUCH..

  • Episode 326 was all about The SEARCH for the property and The DUE-DILIGENCE around the search and the finance (lending) for that property!
  • Episode 325 was about GETTING STARTED! Nailing the brief, how to get your FINANCE ready,

 

And this week is all about…..

MAKING AN IRRESISTABLE OFFER!

Doesn’t matter if it’s an offer prior to auction, post auction or even a ZOOM auction…

We’ll be sharing practical, real-life and tested tips and tactics on setting your offer limit, the tone of voice to use, replies to common agent feedback, body language and more!

And of course…. What happens after the offer gets accepted?! If you think that you’ve signed on the dotted line and that’s it, you couldn’t be more wrong.

It’s not over until the keys to the property are in your hands and you can officially walk in without being considered a “trespasser” ….

We’ll be unpacking the mistakes, the last minute paperwork, the forgotten things and the follow-ups that a diligent buyer needs to do after signing the contract because let’s face it…. You’ve done so well to secure a property, you DO NOT want to stuff up the final leg.

Episode 326 | How To Win In A HOT Property Market (Part 2) – The Step-By-Step Process!

Part 2 of “The Step-By-Step Process To Win In A HOT Property Market” is HERE…

… and today’s episode is all about two things:

  1. The SEARCH for the property…
  2. The DUE-DILLEGENCE around the search and the finance (lending) for that property!

Folks, as we mentioned last week in Part 1 of this 3-part mini-series… we are in a HOT property market – listings are TIGHT.

Properties are selling in the blink of an eye.

And pretty much every major and secondary market across the country is SMOKIN’…

… so if you’re a property buyer playing in “The Big Wave”, it’s vital you educate yourself so you stay in front of the curb (while NOT getting swept up in FOMO) – this way, you can ultimately enjoy the ride and, yep, the fruits of your smart efforts!

We’ll be unpacking quite a bit in this episode, and you’ll be getting plenty of tips on how to conduct your search to find an investment-grade property (incl. what WE personally and professionally do and look for!)… and let you in on “The Top 3 Deal Does” and “Top 3 Deal Breakers” in a HOT property market… as well as how to be due-diligent with your finances, ESPECIALLY in a market that is moving at a rapid pace.

Remember – stay informed, don’t do anything irrational right now… and ONLY IF you’re in a position to “push play”, move quickly but SMARTLY.

… What a ride we’re in!

 

P.S. – Part 1 was all about the backdrop of how we got to this HOT property market, how to get your PREP work done and figuring out your brief… this ep’s getting into the nitty gritty of the property and lending story!!
