Finding Deals in a Hot Market How do you know what a great deal looks like? Becoming an Area Expert instills confidence Get a log book (digital or paper & pen) Clarity on what your deal needs to look like Set goals, targets but be open to opportunity Numbers are everything, the more deals you look at the better you get at knowing when the numbers stack up
Finding Deals in a Hot Market Area Expert Strategy Use a log book and track the deals Get a map of the area you are looking in and pinpoint the median prices on each suburb on the map and use a colour code key This will clarify the high, medium and low growth suburbs From there you can start focusing on a suburb that is surrounded by high growth suburbs to capitalise on the potential flow on growth
