159: Real Estate Negotiation with the American Negotiation Institute’s Founder, Kwame Christian
Real Estate Negotiation with the American Negotiation Institute's Founder, Kwame Christian
Negotiation is a substantial part of real estate and investing. We discuss exactly what you do when the tenant wants to pay the rent late. I tell you exactly how I negotiated the price and terms on the very home that I live in today! Then our guest, Kwame Christian, Founder of the American Negotiation Institute joins us. He defines negotiation as “A conversation where somebody wants something.” Three uses of negotiation: 1) Use offensively. 2) Use defensively. 3) Strengthening relationships. We discuss how you negotiate in a way where you keep a strong relationship with the other party, rather than alienate them. We talk about how to motivate your Property Manager to work hard on your behalf. In negotiation, let other party speak first. Let them make the first offer, except when you have more information. We discuss midpoint negotiation. “Anchoring” is an important part of negotiation psychology. This can help you get a better deal. Kwame and I discuss what people will pay what an item is worth to them, not you. But what about sentimental value and sunk cost? In a real estate sellers’ market, should you ask for more than you expect, or only what you expect? Learn about the negotiation techniques of “log rolling”, multiple offers, and “always get the last concession”. We discuss introverts and negotiation. Negotiation is a learned skill; it is not innate. Learn exactly what to do to become a better negotiator in just the next 24 hours. In negotiation, where do ego and emotion fit in?
