Rightmove Survey

Recommended Posts

Have they fixed the 'total seach' feature which enables people to find out how many properties are for sale in any one area. They removed it in favour of limited searched to hide the fact that the supposed housing shortage is a complete and utter myth.

Surveys are always a bit useless as they tend to be angled towards getting the answers that the organisation wants. This one does at least seem to take onboard what you have previously answered and present questions based on those answers.

The final section has you rate certain local factors from 1-5, such as traffic links, safety, shopping, etc.. One of the topics though is just 'Property' with no further description of what you are actually rating, availability, quality, price, size, just 'Property'.

If we really wanted to create a HPC, wouldn't we be replying to surveys like this with the greatest bull VI that we could?

Completely send out the wrong message, and these companies would respond totally innapropriately to the actual market?

Looking at their past surveys, I see that in Q1 2010, only 12.6% of respondents expected house prices to fall over the following year.

Another Flawed survey from rightmove. I said I have no plans to buy or sell a property in the next 12 months yet a later question told me that I was planning to sell and what is my reason.

This is identical to the last survey where it asked the reason why I was planning to buy in the next 12 months! Total rubbish!

There's a new interesting survey on Rightmove to help you to vent your spleen :ph34r: . Enjoy!

Rightmove

Did RM ever get around to publishing what people thought about those pictures of horrible new-build flats from a few months ago?

I'm waiting for Rightmove to allow comments underneath each property they feature, like You Tube does.

This could be great fun! "You need some more twigs in vases before I'll buy that"; "You call 3x3 a bedroom!"; "Looking on streetview, I see you've not declared that the property is next to a nuclear reactor"; "Don't you think 350K for a 2 bed terrace is a bit steep?" etc etc...

..Which is why Rightmove will never implement it.

Property bee, however, (or a clone) could.

Same happened to me.

Also, you can say you cannot afford to buy, but you cannot say prices are too high. It misses out people who can afford to buy now, but want more for their money - i would imagine many on here fit into that description.

And.... it asks about when you plan to buy and when you will have a deposit. You can not tell the survey that you do not plan to buy in the next 12 months but have a deposit.

Its like they dont want to know the truth. I wonder if they designed this with their fingers in their ears.
