Do Real Estate Investors Need Good Sales Skills with Matt Cavanaugh- Episode #401

You might be wondering, “Do real estate investors need good sales skills” to succeed in this business? Personally, I believe that a good sales foundation helps most investors when it comes to negotiation. I also believe it’s not a skill most of us aren’t naturally good at.

Let’s face it; we are always negotiating with someone. Negotiation doesn’t only happen when we are making offers. We negotiate with contractors, tenants, and/or property managers, and for other goods and services. I believe that sales skills are actually people skills. They involve the ability to hear and be heard. It would stand to reason that it’s a good idea for real estate investors to have sales skills.

My guest today is Matt Cavanaugh, and he is going to dive into sales skills, understanding human psychology around sales, and how this helps him run a large-scale wholesaling business.

Matt is a visionary, strategist, a real estate investor, and he is the co-host of the Freedom Chaser’s Podcast. He has a passion for helping people achieve freedom and live the lives they were meant to live. Matt is licensed and active as a retail realtor in 10 states selling hundreds of units per year. He is a partner in a large-scale wholesale operation currently operational in 10 markets.
