5.6. Benefit Close

5.6.1. Mrs smith we can pay 30k Cash for the property in its AS is condition. Meaning you don't have to make any repairs to the property or worry about fees and commissions that a realtor would charge you.

6. Things to Know

6.1. Never offer your best price, so you can have room to negotiate up.

6.1.1. if you must negotiate up ask for a commitment Mrs smith, i'm going to call my partner and see if we can come up a bit. IF i can get him to come up, do we have a deal?

6.4. Be able to kill realtors

6.4.1. No Commisions

6.4.2. No fees

6.4.3. Why list with a realtor. They are just going to try and find you a guy like me. Why pay 6% when you've got a live buyer in front of you?

6.4.4. Mrs. Smith properteis are siting on the market X amount of days. I thought you were looking to actually sell the house as opposed to just having it sit there!

6.5. Mindset

6.5.1. This is what i DO!

7. Close in Price

7.1. The battle is already won script

7.1.1. Mrs smith, you want to sell and we want to buy. Lets figure out how we can bridge the gap. We literally talking about a few bucks

7.2. Be able to show the NET

7.2.1. Lets say you sold this with a realtor. First the property would SIT on the market. THEN someone might come through and ask you to make repairs. THEN IF you do find a buyer your're going to have to pay your realtor AND the buyers realtor.

7.3. I know you'd like to put this property behind you mrs smith. what's stopping you?

7.4. Closing Cost Trick

7.4.1. My favorite: Agree to pay the sellers closing costs so that they NET the actual offer amount.

8. Overprice

8.1. Mrs. Smith i would love to give you X amount for your property, BUT unfortunately the value is just not there.

8.2. in order to get that number, you have to put X amount of work into it. Is that what you are looking to do>

8.3. Be relateable

8.3.1. Mrs smith. On any given day i am not only a Buyer, BUT i am a SELLER. I totally understand you want to get top dollar, but the reality is sometimes as sellers we aren't being realistic. I go through this myself. I've got houses on the market that i though we could get a certain price and i was totally wrong!

8.4. Bring them to Reality

8.4.1. Lets forget that this is a house. What kind of car do you drive? Ok. So lets say you were looking to buy a honda accord. Let's say it's a 2005 accord. Before you buy, you're going to look at......?what other 2005 accords are selling for right? Lets say folks are paying 10k for nice accords with low mileage and great condition. Now lets say you find an accord that has high mileage, transmission issues, and accident history. Would you pay 10k for that accord?

8.5. Step out of the equation

8.5.1. Lets forget about the fact that i'm the buyer

8.5.2. Re-Paint the picture
