ENZ 132 – How Asking The Right Questions Can Turn Dead Leads Into Hot Deals

In this special episode of Escaping The Real Estate Newbie Zone Chris Bruce talks about the conversation you need to have when talking with sellers. When it comes down to negotiating and turning the leads into wholesale contracts signed, it’s all about asking the right questions.

Majority of my deals the sellers asking price was much higher than what I wanted to offer. When you know the right questions to ask and what will trigger the seller, you can get them to drop their price much lower.

On this episode I’ll go over those questions in detail. These are questions beyond the normal information you need about the property. You also find yourself educating the seller and painting the picture clear as day for them to see. Tune into this episode  you’re going to love it.
