Meeting people in person

Whenever you can, it’s best to meet with someone when you’re buying or selling. Here are our top tips on doing the perfect deal.
  1. If you’ve asked someone to come to your house, make sure somebody’s there with you.
  2. If you’re meeting in a public place, try to do it during the day somewhere busy, like at your local coffee shop.
  3. Try not to carry lots of money. If you’ve already agreed a price, take that amount. Otherwise, agree how much and get the money out later.
  4. If you’re the seller, count the cash before you accept it.
  5. Ask lots of questions to make sure it’s exactly what you want.
  6. If you don’t like it or you’re having second thoughts, you can say no.
