To be successful in the current more challenging property markets, you not only need to know what to do, but just as importantly you need to know what not to do.
As I see it there will be plenty of challenges and risks in the real estate markets this year and the value of certain properties will be a little lower by the end of the year.
But we’re experiencing a necessary market adjustment and without it we’d be in for the kind of crash we really didn’t want.
So in today’s show, we’re going to talk about what not to do in property in 2019.
I also have a bit of a controversial mindset moment to share with you.
And I’ll chat with Ahmed Imam about the questions you should ask an agent before you make an offer so you understand how to take advantage of this buyer’s market.
Here’s What Not to Do In Property in 2019
Making an offer on a property – what price should you offer?
Here are 5 questions to ask the agent before you make your offer:
Was it from the agent’s suggestion or because that’s how much they need to buy their next dream home?
Some sellers are unrealistic and unlikely to come down from their asking price if they have to get a certain amount for a particular reason.
This lets you know if you have any competition and how serious the vendor is about selling their home for a reasonable price.
If it’s just been put up for sale, the seller may not be anxious to accept the first offer.
If the home has been on the market for several months, it’s more likely the seller would be ready to accept your offer.
Are they going through a divorce?
Do they have to move interstate urgently?
Have they already bought another home that would put them under pressure to sell their current home?
This will let you know how motivated the seller is.
This will tell you whether the seller is really keen to offload their home and also let you know that you might have a motivated seller on your hands and perhaps greater bargaining power.
