    How to Deal with Angry Sellers

    How to Deal with Angry Sellers

    The voicemail you hear at the beginning came in the other day because of a transaction that went sideways.
    How do you deal with angry people like this?
    There will always be people who are upset by you, but usually it has nothing to do with you. And when someone gets this much upset over what was basically a good deal, they probably need bigger problems in their life.
    The takeaway here is don't sweat the small things, focus on your goals. 
    Talk to you soon!

    What about the 70% Rule?

    What about the 70% Rule?

    The 70% rule says that you want to be all in on a property at 70% of its value or less.
    But does it work in today's market? Should you really offer 85% as some people are advising?!!
    Hell no.
    First, just because your deals are not getting accepted, doesn’t mean your offer is bad. It rather means you need to work on lead generation.  
    And second, even you're good at lead generation, you still need to know how to negotiate.
    So stay within conservative values.
    Stop making offers.
    Just stop.

Empowering and informative!

Brad is an engaging host who provides a lot of powerful info for real estate investors. I loved the episode with Clayton Morris, specifically the importance of identifying your “why.” The mindset piece is so important, yet often overlooked.
