NEVER DISCLOSE YOUR BUDGET.
Best only used when negotiations have collapsed, a last all or nothing try. They’re either really not interested in your price or they are trying to secure a better price either way it’s your last chance. But remember to only pay what you want.
THE BEST YOU CAN GO TO?
This is an aggressive phrase that turn the tables and force a justification. Only use this if you can stay the course and keep up the pressure. The trick to using this phrase is silence. After saying this particular phrase take a moment in complete silence. Maintain this silence for as long as you can. People are uncomfortable with prolonged awkward pauses and will speak just to fill the gap in conversation.
YOUR HOUSE IS UNIQUE.
Never point out that there are no other similar houses you are looking at. Rather, point out that this is one of many. It’s crucial that you have up to date information, so just make sure to do your research.
Don't be reluctant to try and strike a deal when viewing if you can. If you don't our experience shows that someone will, but if you try you need to go big! If not they may not be tempted to call off all the other set up viewings.
DON'T BE OVER KEEN
We all know this? Most people have an insatiable need to be liked, be friendly, just remember in that moment when you want to make an impression, gain rapport and hopefully influence the deal by being likeable and don't over compliment. You will drive the price up!
CAN MEET IN THE MIDDLE?
How far can you come down/up in price to meet me? Sometimes it’s difficult to work out how much clear blue water there is between you both. Or for that matter how much leeway you may have if you can force the other party to engage on there price. In such a scenario you should use this phrase.

Knowing & Asking Is Always Better Than Assuming What Is Happening.
Assumptions create 70% of all conveyancing stress and issues. We make assumptions every minute of every day. Something happens and we instantly assign meaning to it. That is an assumption. Yet conveyancing and the residential legal system in Scotland is constantly changing and so does what your solicitor is reqired by law to do and what is required of you. We start imagining and reasoning what is going on, we look at social media and ask friends, what they think, what they experienced. We rationalise an entire assumed story based on assumptions and we believe it. One assumption leads to another assumption; we jump to conclusions and we take it personally. Almost all conflicts and desisions we take are based on assumptions. Assumptions are nothing more than false stories that we are telling ourselves. They create a big drama for no reason because they aren’t based on fact. If you really want to avoid the stress of moving, ensure that your experience is a possitive one and you are informed, why not just ask your property solicitor?
