Side of house
Anne top 3 learning from this real estate flipping house deal was:
- A no isn’t always final. My initial offer of $330k was “respectfully declined”. The agent came back to me within 3 days, advising that if I could go to $335K, the property was mine.
- Always look for win/wins. Following discussions with the homeowner’s son, we bought the 30 day settlement forward to 14 days to allow the family to avoid further penalties.
- Flipping in quality suburbs is even more important in an environment such as we currently have. Despite the tumultuous times, I’m confident this property will still sell relatively quickly, to downsizers wanting to stay in the area.
