I can’t explain that, other than EA’s are salespeople and, as such, employ all the usual sales tactics and spin. But the vast majority would stop short of outright lies and certainly inventing mythical buyers.

Just remember, the seller ultimately holds all the cards, they set the price and agree any offer. If they’re stubborn or bordering on delusional there’s nothing you or any EA can do.

Out of curiosity, what is the EA telling you around the time you view? Have you ever put in an offer?

Lest there be any doubt.

No I believe prices will fall and am astounded that a so called Conservative led government could act in such a stupid way. As you can see from today, there are 2,000 HtB applicants and it has been on MSM none stop all day and they make up about 3.5% of a typical months mortgages.

BTL is a good potential way to bankruptcy and yes sometimes I make points to hopefully make people think.

Its not about commission its about MAKING A SALE.

You forget that you will always get offers (derisory or otherwise) on a property but the ultimately decider of a sale is if the SELLER accepts.

The EA plays buyers off against each-other or against phantom buyers to squeeze out as much as possible, increasing the chance that the seller says SELL. Some have noted the increase in commission is not worth it, correct - what the EA is trying to avoid is a no-sale, which is what happens if he only gets low ball/realistic offers.

Not feeling it
The truth is that the economies of rich countries, including the UK, are being kept alive by another and astonishingly under-reported bull market — in government debt. This is the bond bubble; and when it bursts, as it surely will, the result will be a recession far deeper than the crash from which we are trying to recover.
