Realty Talk: Why rents increase + Broken rental market + Lowball strategy

This week on Realty Talk, we tackle the ‘rental crisis’ hot topic and also continue to help sharpen your negotiating skills in our special feature on the art of negotiation. Our guests include Steve McKnight, Evan Thornley and Cate Bakos. Enjoy the show!

First up it’s legendary investor Steve McKnight who joins us for a deep dive into the current rental crisis to answer why rent keeps going up and to the left on the price graph.

Next, Evan Thornley from Longview interestingly reveals why the rental market is broken for everyone and what can be done about it.

Host Bushy Martin also takes some time to share his insights on how the rental crisis can be resolved by embracing investor landlords as friends not foes.  He believes, they are the solution not the problem.  

To round off this week’s show, Kevin Turner continues our special series on the art of negotiation with Buyers Agent Cate Bakos. Together the two discuss whether it’s a good strategy to make ‘Low Ball’ offers to secure a below market purchase.
