Astonishing.

62 property changes (3 bed + up to 300k - my normal search) within 40 miles of Dorchester, Dorset.

50 of them are Connells - half a dozen branches, all reductions.

The remaining twelve include 8 new adds and 4 reductions from other agents.

So, sudden change in sentiment, or is Connells in trouble?

I'd imagine cash flow is an issue in a low volume environment for the big boys.Connells have head office salaries to pay and run on much higher per capita overheads than a small local EA run from one or two shops.

Connells are clearly in search of the bid.What surprised me was the range of the reductions,some were small,others chunky.I'd imagine a diktat has come from a large salary at head office to get the vendors shfiting their expectations south and any small amount is gratefully received.

Apparently they have some sort of acceptance procedure to allow vendors to take part in the sale...
"If you are selling your home and would like to be considered for Connells' 'January Sale' event, contact the local branch..."
