Episode 44: The financial benefits of working with experts

This week we’re discussing the pros and cons of working with an expert in any field, and how to identify a true expert to get the best return on your investment. Listen in for our take on how experts can make your life easier; and how the wrong ‘expert’ can impact your outcomes.

There are many reasons to engage with an expert, but the most important reasons boil down to  4 factors that impact our decisions. These factors include getting a better outcome, obtaining access to exclusive products and opportunities, saving time and stress, and getting a better price for your purchase.

The best analogy is with the property market. If you’re going to buy a home or investment property, where on earth do you start? A professional can help you choose the right investment or find the right home that fits your criteria. Further, they are professional negotiators in real estate, and can use their knowledge to make sure you aren’t overpaying on a purchase price, saving you tens of thousands of dollars at a time.
