In today’s podcast, a much-anticipated topic features. But first, Bryce and Ben discuss the recently released GDP numbers for the September quarter. With a fall of 0.5%, what does this mean to us Australians? How will business confidence and the Australian Property Market be affected? And more importantly, is this a really bad thing?
After discussions on the GDP as well as further mentions of our 100th episode (that’s coming up very soon!), today’s main topic – as stated in the title, is: “How to Negotiate to Win”. Not all of us are used to or are comfortable in negotiating as it can be quite confrontational. But Bryce and Ben do it on a daily basis so today, they’ve decided to dish out some of their most useful pointers and success stories to help you on your next purchase! Not only do they let us in on some of the most helpful tips, they also tell us what to look out for and common mistakes not to make. With one of Australia’s leading Buyers Agents opening up about the secrets of negotiating, this is definitely an episode to tune into.
Today we have another special vodcast episode; and joining Bryce and Ben on the couch is the President of the Real Estate Buyer’s Agents Association of Australia (REBAA), winner of The Buyer’s Agent of the Year award 2016 on Your Investment Property Magazine and Managing Director of Propertybuyer, Rich Harvey.
