When it comes to building a huge property portfolio what's really important to me is equity. I treat it as if it's gold. So negotiating on my property deals is vital so that I can have more equity to use as deposit is for future investments. Well I picked up the phone one day, rang a real estate agent and I asked him, "Do you have any properties on your books that are just sitting there and not moving?". Well in fact on this particular day he had one, and he said to me, "It has a bank valuation of $685 000 from one of the major banks". By the time I finished negotiating, I paid $385 000. That's a whopping $300 000 savings, which is fantastic because I was able to use that money for future purchases. So while you're out there looking at your next investment property deal, don't be afraid to negotiate and don't be afraid to ask for big discounts. And in fact, ask for the white elephant because you never know what you might find.
