Rhiannon’s top three tips for getting the transaction done
“Sometimes they say I really like this and that’s great, that’s what they like, but what do they actually need and require in a property as well, are a bit of a different conversation” Rhiannon 2:29
“There’s a variety of different clients, some will really have a clear picture of what they want and what they require and others are starting from scratch and need a bit of help fleshing that out” Rhiannon 4:04
“A lot of buyers maybe just find a property themselves and then work backwards of what’s required, but with our experience we know the order of events that we need to work towards and we take the buyer along that process with us” Rhiannon 6:17
“Timing is super important so if you understand what the steps are involved up front you can get ready very early on” Rhiannon 8:47
“I would ask you know what about that process, what about that property, makes you nervous and pinpointing that, because chances are there is somebody who could help you with that particular element” Rhiannon 16:35
