They opened one in Dulwich about a year ago, to go with the other 50 within a stone's throw. Truly, how on earth are EAs surviving, let alone expanding, with transactions at record lows for the past 3 years? Yes I know staff are paid peanuts and overheads are low but still surprised we haven't seen mass closures.

Rentals saved Foxtons' bacon.

They have cut back staff numbers, marketing spend but open more branches while leases on commercial property are cheap so they can destroy the competition, they are private equity backed so they are prepared to gamble big to win in the medium term.

In Q2 last year they were advertising a place near me in Dulwich that had 2 views in 4 months, the sellers then moved agents and sold a month later for 100k less than the foxtons asking...

Foxtons tried to open one in BH in ~2005 but the locals put pressure on the council not to reclassify the restaurant??? they had got their mits on so that it could be used as an estate agents. The "bar" in the East Dulwich Foxtons (and others) may be to get around the commercial usage type requirements.

Why do they need 30 offices in Blackheath? :lol:

So there isn't space left for any other EAs!;)

When Foxtons was flogged to the private equity lot, the price was equivalent to £10m per branch!

That Foxtons in East Dulwich is simply massive. As for their pricing, sometimes it's astronomical. Sometimes I think that a house on rightmove is reasonably priced or cheap in the current market. Most Foxton's stuff is ouch, got to be joking.

I will try and avoid having to deal with Foxtons when buying a house because of their sales technique. There have been a couple of programs about them being even more Estate Agent, than most estate agents on T.V. I wonder if the general public will start not using them?

I simply refuse to deal with them.
