02 Sep Playing the property game
Get a look behind the pages of the latest edition of Australian Property Investor magazine.
In this podcast Kevin Turner talks to Antonia Mercorella about the increasing incidence of multiple offers on properties. Most agents dread getting more than one offer at a time on a property because it always seems to raise the question about transparency. In a multiple offer situation the agent cannot disclose the level of the other offer and that may arouse suspicion in the mind of at least one of the parties. So how should you conduct yourself as a buyer in this situation and how can you make sure your offer stays on top?
Kevin also talks to Eliza Owen from OnTheHouse.com.au about every investor’s dream about buying a gem of a property before it officially hits the market. If it’s offered to you before it’s advertised on one of the real estate portals – or even marketed to an agent’s database – then chances are you can purchase it for a cheaper price. But how do you go about finding it and what are the likely obstacles you will come up against?
