The biggest mistake that a seller can do in a property transaction is to talk to the buyer about the new taps and paint jobs of the house, instead of selling the opportunity of how buying with creative strategies can benefit the buyer
(PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Rick Otton, the author of How To Buy A House For A Dollar, will be visiting Geelong on 17 August to talk about ways on how to sell Geelong real estate easily in his live, one-day real estate seminar.
Geelong is one of the fastest growing regions in the country and it has been experiencing an even more significant boon after the approval of a $2 billion investment from Victoria’s planning department in March of this year.
The investment has produced nearly 6,000 new homes in Armstrong Creek West and Planning Minister, Matthew Guy, projects that it will produce 22,000 new jobs, which will allow over 60,000 people to live in the area once the project has been completed.
Mr. Otton, a respected property coach, told the listeners of his Creative Real Estate iTunes Podcast that sellers do not need to wait for the next big development project in order to sell their property so long as they focus more on people and not their houses.
“The biggest mistake that a seller can do in a property transaction is to talk to the buyer about the new taps and paint jobs of the house, instead of selling the opportunity of how buying with creative strategies can benefit the buyer,” he explained.
Mr. Otton also shared in the podcast that sellers should build rapport with the buyer and find out why he wants to own a Geelong property because is information will help him in creating a deal that will be mutually beneficial for the both of them.
“We’re not really in the house business; we’re in the property solutions business. That’s why it’s important to focus the negotiations on how people can get a house without applying for a home loan or paying a high deposit,” Mr. Otton pointed out.
“Sellers, however, must remember that they shouldn’t over complicate the discussions by explaining the entire process to the buyers,” Mr. Otton warned. “People only want to hear the benefit of how it works, not the technicality of how it works,” he added.
Mr. Otton invites Geelong residents to attend his Geelong property event in 17 August, so they can learn more useful real estate tips from How To Buy A House For A Dollar.
