    - Brush up on development appraisals, how would you break back to a land value figure to make an offer given a development final figure.

    - Market knowledge, how is the market? What is stopping transactions at the moment?

    - How do you keep up with what is happening in the market?

    - Deals done by the company, what do you know about them?

    - What do you know about the company?

    Negotiation Details
    I think in a market that we are in at the moment, and especially given that this is a graduate role, you NEED to stress that the money is not the motivator, the excellent training available within a large corporate company with dedicated advisers needs to be top of your list.
