Secret Key Estate Agents Ad In The News Guardian 24/3/2011

Recommended Posts

I rarely bother looking at the weekly property pages now in the News Guardian as quite happily renting for the long-term really.

Noticed tonight however, that the page for Secret Keys estate agents, which shows 21 properties, has 20 of them as being sold ?.

Is this an unexpected property selling frenzy all of a sudden, or have sales dried up so much, its just details of properties that have sold so far this year ?

Their ad goes on to state, Urgent requirement, due to high demand, for all these types of properties sold

Anyone know whats going on ?

The agents in our paper do the same (although the local rag is down to having ONE estate agent advertise in it - the property used to run ot about a dozen pages or more so 8 or 9 agents each week) Everything apart from one or two always has SOLD or LET written over it, and some of the spaces have pictures of champagne bottles instead of houses!!!

I think they are reaaaaaaaly suffering and have nothing on their books, or nothing at a realistic price worth advertising. Some of the "sold" houses are in the paper every week for months and yet apparently they are desperate for houses to sell and rent, you'd think if these houses were selling so fast they could change the houses they show each week, but apparently not.

No one around here is buying, Chester is so expensive compared to anywhere around it, prices need to come down another 30 or 40% to even get close to reasonable

Very fishy!

Secret Key have over a hundred properties for sale on their books, filling a page with properties that sold last year is misleading. Seems that in some cases Secret Key the oldest estate agent in Tynemouth just tells lies....

Livingston View Sold in Nov 2010

Park Crescent East Withdrawn from Market

Horsley Terrace Sold in Nov 2010

Denham Drive Sold in Nov 2010

Tynemouth Road No sign of it

Percy Park No sign of it

Norfolk Street Sold Dec 2010

And so on

I can believe that. After all, the North East property market is really heating up again! Prices in the NE have only fell by 7% so far this year... ;)
