Came back from Hols couple of weeks ago and a place 100 yards away had a shiny new green Fenn Wright SOLD SSTC board outside.

didnt even know it was for sale before the hols, and its not on RM.

today, left home and saw the sign...green Fenn Wright SOLD SSTC.

am back now, 11AM and the sign has changed....an event that normally shows a revert to FOR SALE.

Not this one, it now is a purple Boydens Board, also with SOLD on it? again, it wasnt on RM, even though Boydens and Fenn Wright post there.

so, SOLD with one agent....NOT....now SOLD with another??????

this market is getting strange.

Sounds like something that would happen during boom times. What sort of house is it, no. bedrooms, ect?

Its a semi detached bungalow...Id guess it was 2 bed. Its in the country like ours.

what strikes me is that it was SOLD with the other agent, now it turns out it wasnt and now its SOLD again with another agent...

Yep, some odd goings on indeed

The two top adverts are the same house up with one agent for £375k and another for £350k.

The £375k has SOLD STC on it, :blink:

Probably they use the same man in a van to put up the signs and he simply put up the wrong sign?

could be.

The answer is simple: while you were on holiday the new owners (who bought through Fenn Wright) renovated the place (splashed a bit of magnolia on the walls), put it back on the market with Boydens and sold it.

The market is hot hot hot don't you know; you can't go taking holidays if you want to stay on top of it. Fill your boots while you can :o

Don't forget the bunch of twigs in a jar in the old fireplace, works like a charm

interestingly, the tiny place up the Road that doesnt sell, inspite of the price rise on RM, now has the developer turning up...he has installed hanging baskets and parks his porsche on the tiny drive.

or maybe the porsche now comes with it.

anyone noticed any more of this behaviour - how are the broken SSTC chains stacking up these days????

I have noticed lots in my part of the World go SSTC only to come back on the market about 3 months later. For some reason, 3 months seems to be the timeframe.

Likely to be failure to secure a mortgage.

The excuses run out around about that time...

A property I know of was SSTC last year failed to sell and then months came back on to the market after the owner had decorated and etc. Now its listed as SSTC despite that the fact that twice the agent has put up a sold sign outsideand then taken it down. Apparently one of the boards was torn down by the owner. Though they have moved out no one has moved in the owner returns to turn lights on and off and take some odds and ends away. Allegedly it turns out that the owner was a property developer. My only thought is that it's been "sold" to an associate under duress.
