Hot Property of the Week Marine Parade, Southport Queensland.

Written on the 9 January 2017 by James Cagney

James Cagney of Australia Hot Property (BN20574423) applies stringent criteria when it comes to featuring properties on his website. James is not interested in listing properties of owners, developers and builders which are unrealistically priced.  James provides each vendor with a Market Comparative Analysis which shows the vendor what the property is worth. If the vendor is not happy with that price James then advises the vendor to hold off selling until a later date or to go another agent. The vendor must be prepared to meet the market price.Making money in property is often more about TIME in the market than TIMING the market. Therefore you never wait to buy a property you buy a property and wait for it to grow in value.  If you are eager to buy a property right now you need to take into account these three important factors to make sure sure you are buying the right property at the right time: :

  • Property Cycle
  • Demographic Trends
  • Location   
If these factors are not presently in favour of the buyer James will not list the property.  Over the years James has learned the most important rules of growing a real estate business:
  •     If the buyer does not make money within a reasonable time holding the property they will never buy from you again.
  •     If you do not give your clients extraordinary service they will never give you referral business.

Now this may sound very simple but the stark reality is that most real estate agents are more interested in making their commission on a single sale than looking towards repeat business from that client in the future. The real estate business is unfortunately rife with short term thinkers and money grabbers. James wrote an expose on the unethical practices and tactics that real estate agents use.  To be smarter than those agents when buying and selling property you need to be aware of these practices and tactics.
