I get the following "mistakes":

There are no end of them, to be fair maybe No3 has has been missed by the bee.
Isn't that false advertising/Illegal ?
Trading standards anyone ?

In the area I'm following tone EA will "withdraw" a property from Rightmove for a couple of days before relisting it if they want to show a price reduction.

I guess they're trying to show the property as "new to market" and avoid tipping off a potential buyer as to the fact that the vendor is in a weak position. Also I think it then generates a new "property alert" email to those RM users who've expressed an interest in the area.

So, as I said, false advertising.

EAs around our area re-list at the same price after a few weeks to pretend it is new, they re-list property they sold recently to show they are selling properties like hotcakes. All the tricks in the book to make sure you don't miss out ...

Again, false advertising.

Maybe it's time E.A. ( or 2nd hand house sales w*nkers, as I like to call them ) were regulated.

From my experience estate agents just want a sale and the commission, even if it means coercing the seller into a lower price or fake bids against the buyer to push the price into the sellers territory.

Ea's only work for themselves.
