03/23/2017 A long overdue podcast focussing on buying in Scotland. What to be aware of when you buy in Scotland, and of course, we will be discussing where to buy. Check the Home Report.  The Home Report is a document that exists in Scotland but not here, and we love this as it gives both parties a lot more confidence in the sale as it progresses, as there are no surprises that crop up along the line.  This will contain a survey (including a valuation), an energy report and a property questionnaire. Plan your offer Properties are marketed at a fixed price (which you can offer below if you want), or “offers over”. When it’s “offers over”, you submit a sealed bid before a certain date. After the deadline, the vendor’s solicitor opens all the offers and the vendor chooses which to accept. Your solicitor puts in the offer Offers are made by your solicitor directly to the vendor’s solicitor – not via estate agents. So you need to have a solicitor in order to make an offer. You can make your offer “subject to survey” if you want to get your own survey done rather than just relying on the Home Report, but this will obviously be less attractive. Go through the legals If your offer is accepted, the vendor’s solicitor will issue a “qualified acceptance” and pass across the property deeds and other documents. Your solicitor will go through it all and raise enquiries. Once they’re happy, the two solicitors exchange letters – this is known as “concluding missives” and at this point the sale is binding on both sides Complete On the date agreed in the contract, you pay the full purchase price (there’s usually no deposit) and the property is signed over to you So, that's the process, but where should you buy? Edinburgh – An extremely popular area, but supply is very low at the moment so prices are very high. Glasgow – Glasgow has lots of demand due to overspill from Edinburgh, so it is fairly expensive but is popular. Commuter belt of Glasgow/Edinburgh Riding the ripple effect from these two major cities, is the commuter belt, which is well worth checking out. Stirling – The UK’s most affordable city and a popular tourist destination. (Thanks Ollie Hughes on Hub for the heads up here) Aberdeen –  Thsi is an interesting market, because it’s so dependent on the oil industry.  Aberdeen had the biggest fall in price in the UK last year. West Coast, Ayrshire – Another area where high yields are available. All this said, we're not experts on the Scottish market but there are plenty of people who are over on the forum. Meet Rob D in Scotland Our Scottish Meetups are brilliant already but in April we are having a re-boot of our Edinburgh Meetup and we're sending Rob D to say hi. If you can make it, he would love to see you. You can book your completely free ticket to the Edniburgh Meetup on April 6th here. If you can't make it to Edinburgh there is bound to be a Meetup near you anyway - you can find more details and links to book your tickets, right here. News story: The Budget U-Turn Last week we discussed how the Spring Budget was a bit of a non-event, but this week the Government have cemented that status by doing a u-turn on the one major thing that was announced. Read all about it here, but in a nutshell, national insurance is staying the same. Resource of the week A Chrome extension from Rob D's friend Patrice. Subliminal Affirmations - set messages that you want to absorb into your conscious. Sounds mad? Maybe, but Rob D has been using this for a couple of weeks and confirms he is feeling even more awesome than usual. Continue the conversation over in the forum Have you invested in Scotland? Are you considering it? Discuss all things Scottish in further detail over on the forum. You will see it's discussed pretty often, for example when Charles D recently asked about areas he should consider investing in, or when James from London started this post all about looking at deals in Glasgow.

03/23/2017 How do YOU talk to a Motivated Seller? What do you say? Do you ever get nervous? Do you ever get tonge tied? Do you have your script memorized??? Well if you don' BETTER!! You need to know not only WHAT to say...but EXACTLY HOW to say it! Trust us when we tell ya: It is more in the "how" then the what! In this short Podcast, Tom talks about a recent deal he did (personally) for a quick $17k! This is a pretty unique situation because Tom typically doesn't do deals these days. His disposition managers are the ones on the front lines doing all the deals. In this episode, Tom reveals EXACTLY what he said to the seller...and HOW he said it! Sometimes it's more about what you DON'T say versus what you do. You're gonna love it! If you think you have what it takes to run with a tribe of Rhino's, go to and book a FREE Strategy Session call with us. If we like what you have to say we may just consider inviting you into the tribe. We've helped more Wholesalers build 6 figure business's than probably anyone out there today, so we're confident we can get you there too. But you have to be ready for it! If you're awesome and are ready to ROCK a Wholesaling business, let's talk! See you next time!
