Still Not Selling - I Know What To Do

Recommended Posts

Guest rigsby II

Dear Estate Agents,

Not selling your shoddy new-builds to some muppet ? Even after a year ?

Here's what to do.

Put up the price by adding some crappy incentives.

(They'll probably update rightmove -but now its £152,995)



You can have the same house for £167,995


But have some cheap'n'nasty carpetright crap or £6k off your mortgage.

Now which one shall I choose ? I know neither.

Sincerely yours



PS missed this as well.

I kid you not, but our neighbour three doors down has had their house on the market for a month without an offer. Their comment - 'we put it on at too low a price'.

Forgot to add that all their neighbours in identical houses (in a wee block of four new builds) hate them for 'lowering the value' of their properties. It makes me glad to rent.

House a mile or so from me has gone from £134k I think last year to £164k this year...

With a step of £154k I think.

Bizarre. :)

I've seen a few new-build luxury flat prices being raised in the last couple of months.

I feel the sensible explanation for this is that they are now willing to listen to lower offers or grant discounts. Of course, they'll only discount a higher price now won't they?!

Some of these flats have been on sale for up to a year, so I feel this is the end game and they are now grasping at straws.

Seen the same here. House on the market for well over two years, won't even get a sniff. Drop the price £10k (given that it's at least £40-50k over over 3 bed semis in the area), but still no sale.

Anyway, as soon as the interest rates are cut, price back up by £10k! But at least they want to throw the furniture in.
