Spot The Difference

Recommended Posts

It looks like a couple of local agents are really trying to shift this - based on the commission just the one sale would bring in some cash.

There's just one subtle difference between the two listings for it:

But why buy now, better to wait until the guide price is 399k surely.

Or better still, wait till it hits 300k!

It just shows how arbitrary asking prices are and how scary it was during a seller's market when agents could dream up a figure and actually sell for that price! How things have changed in 12 months... ;)

You can tell which one is the profesional EA, and which one is the desperate EA!

Talking of professional estate agents and desperate estate agents, has anyone notice that a lot of property advertisements these days (especially on internet property sites) seem to have on photo, very little information and are probab

ly misspelt too. These people are supposed to be selling properties. I'm sure someone has already said that a lot of estate agents only have experience of selling in a sellers market and they will have problems now it has become a buyers market. Personally for the money they've made I think they should be working much harder to sell houses. The market may have become more difficult but I see precious little evidence that estate agents are working harder to lure buyers in. <_<

True. True.

It reminds me of people being overworked - I see far too many mistakes made when people are overworked.

Are EAs over worked?

Increase in properties being sold? Yes. Increase in buyer enquires? No. Loads of EAs being fired/redundant/less hours? Oh yes.
