The conversation with property negotiator Scott Aggett continues, focusing on how negotiation can help you navigate a hot property market.
Given the limited supply of properties compared to the massive current demand, finding good quality properties and then being able to outsmart the competing hordes to get the property, many of whom are still prepared to pay way beyond expectations, is proving to be slow painstaking, stressful and very frustrating hard work.
So how do you separate yourself from the FOMO buying pack? How do you successfully outsmart your competition and level the playing field with sellers agents to find, negotiate and secure a property in hyper competitive conditions?
How can you position yourself to ensure that your offer is more appealing to the selling agent and property seller than anyone else?
What should and shouldn’t you be doing to best position yourself in these highly contested conditions?
If you’ve already listened to part 1 of Scott Aggett’s conversation on last week’s episode along with his inspiration for my separate deep dives on transparency and the power of silence in negotiation as part of the new and improved Get Invested format, then I know you’ll be bursting at the seams to enjoy today’s concluding segment that will help you answer these vexing questions.
So during our ear opening chat, Scott reveals the strategies, tactics and tricks that selling agents use to put buyers at a disadvantage as well as how you can notice and avoid them.
He shows you how you can build rapport with selling agents in order to glean as much info as possible. Along with what questions you do and don’t ask a selling agent.
We talk about what information you shouldn’t be telling selling agents.
Scott covers the other negotiation points a buyer can use to get their offer to stand out and be more appealing to both the agent and the selling vendor.
He also covers the best negotiation approach for the different methods of sale, including private treaty, auction strategies and the popular best offer buy approach, together with a stack of other negotiation gold.
