In this updated and comprehensive guide, prospective buyers will be introduced to new strategies to help source their ideal property at prices well below market value. Property negotiations are covered in three chapters, starting with the powerful strategy of pre-negotiation, moving on to the practical psychology of buying from motivated sellers before looking at how to close the best deal. In addition, this handbook gives critical advice on how to buy a home through auction. Auctions are set to become the reality for residential buyers seeking a bargain in the coming year, which means that homebuyers must understand how to compete in the auction rooms.
A chapter, contributed by well-known financial commentator, Karl Deeter, looks at the issues surrounding securing finance in the current market.
This updated edition includes a bonus chapter on project RIPPLE: Building the first, fully-compliant, shipping container home in the Republic of Ireland.
