Follow these tips if you want to be a successful buyer in the spring selling season

first_imgHaesley Cush offers tips on how to be a winner during spring selling season.Get pre-approved finance. In the industry if your finance is pre-approved and your offer is not ‘subject to finance’ we call that a ‘cash contract’ and Aussies always take less for cash!Pre-register as a bidder for any auction you have an interest on. Spring is renowned for properties selling prior to auction and buyers missing out. If you are pre-approved you have secured your seat at the negotiating table and agents should inform you if an offer is going to stop the auction.Negotiate terms. If you can’t pay a 10 per cent deposit or settle in 30 days, then tell your agent the deposit and settlement you need. In most cases owners are flexible.Put in offers. The only risk you run putting in an offer is the risk it gets accepted. So if you like it, make an offer and insist it goes on a full contract.Lastly, bid at auctions. If you want to buy a property at auction you need to bid. Waiting for it to go ‘on the market’ can be costly. Many owners will consider lowering their reserve if bidding falls short of their expectation. But without a bid to lower it too, they have little option but to pass it in.

Buyers generally want to be in and settled before Christmas. This means a purchase no later than November. That psychological deadline sees a rise in sales.

Eguma Demands Self-belief Ahead of Wikki Tie

first_imgEguma knows his charges must produce a big performance against a powerful Wikki side who are almost peerless at home.“I cannot predict the outcome of matches before they are played. I rather work towards getting a positive result from the game. I recall that when we got our first away win of the season against Warri Wolves no one expected it.“I can’t predict what will happen in Bauchi. I agree that Wikki Tourists is a good side but it is possible that they can fall in Bauchi and that is what we are plotting for. We have had a week to prepare for the game and we will go to Bauchi to give a good account of ourselves because we know the importance of that game.“We know what that game will do for our title ambitions so we are not going there for tourism. The fans should know that Rivers United will be giving her best in that game and who knows, we may be coming back with a win,” Eguma told supersport.com.Rivers United are currently in first place on the NPFL standings with 56 points from 33 matches.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Technical manager of Rivers United FC, Stanley Eguma says Wikki Tourists will beat his charges unless they play with belief in this weekend’s big game in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).Rivers United have only amassed seven points on their travels all season and have failed to score in their last nine games on the road.last_img read more
