Just noticed today that loads of houses have changed to 'Guide price' from just the normal asking price.
This is not just one agent, its many of them.
Anybody got reasons for this?

Trying to avoid prospective buyers thinking "asking price? I'll offer 30% less"?

The strange thing is that it has happened today.
It feels as if its the other way around, like try and make an offer??

I hear "Guide Price" as being less firm than "Asking Price" too, more open to negotiation. If others agree, I'd take this as a sign of weakness in the market.

Why is that any different to not putting 'Guide Price' or 'Offers in the Region of' in the first place.
Does it mean they are more open to offers?

overview or a feeling that a growing market currently. Greed, fear, expectations and circumstances are all factors affecting the turnover of the Group to invest in attitudes or emotions.
