:P BARRATT HOMES have had a stand in my local shoppingcentre

(in Essex) for 4 days now (since Monday). 3 Sales staff, posh

Digital TV advertising their development of flats 7 townhouses etc.

THIS IS HOW IT HAS GONE....

MONDAY: Billboard display advertising 1 or 2 bed flats (not sure which)

at £199,000.

Staff were receiving lots of verbal "abuse" from passers by,

regarding their rediculous prices.

TUESDAY: Billboard still there but prices removed!!! Whe I questioned them

on price they were cagey but eventully told me prices

were around the £179,000 mark. (A healthy drop already!!)

Wednesday: Billboard with nrew sign confirming the £179,000 as above.

THURSDAY

(Today) : Billboard with enormous red sign - new price £139,000!!!!

MY MATHS NOT GREAT IS THAT NOT A DROP OF ABOUT £60,000 in 4

days?!!!!!

They also had 3 new sales girls who looked as if they had been hired

from PAGE 3 to try and attract male buyers I presume.

There was only 1 client signing up, so i went over and handed the

newspaper item i had about the house price falls. "I Suppose you lot have

heard about the fall in house prices then, thats why youve' reduced you

prices?" Their only client looked a bit shocked and asked if she could read

the item, I noticed she then wandered off!! The sales girl said "Oh no, we are just reacting to market forces!" I said "That's what i just wasn't it?"

I walked off and noticed their manager got straight on his mobile phone (to head office perhaps!!).

It is a huge development with what looks like over 100 flats. If they bring

prices down presumably so will other estate agents in the area orthey

will lose business. THIS SHOULD START THE BALL ROLLING NICELY.

I will pop down there tomorrow - another 20 grand off perhaps.

SLEDGE HEAD - Thanks for your advice.

I have been verbally "abusing" estate agents for months now,

I think they are the lowest of the low, my husband gets very

embarrassed when i kick off but i don't care. They probably

have a WANTED poster up with my face on it!!!!

Give me just 5 minutes alone with dear KIRSTY i would reduce

her to a sobbing wreck.!!!
