LOL Training  

whack 15% on than the last sale price, pretend you have offers on the table, try and direct buyers to in house mortgage advisers. 

 

 

"I am an ex estate agent who worked for Your Move for 30 years and left about 2 years ago as senior management decisions became more and more erratic and things started to unravel. I can only wish staff at Countrywide the best over the next few months. You are not the problem, there are some excellent estate agents working for the various brands and you will be welcomed with open arms to many of your competitors, well respected for the training you have received and not doubted for your work ethic. Its a big world out there."

Excellent agents? Haha, the lot of them are lying scum. An EA would sell his mothers kidney to close a deal.

i can imagine the Excellent EA ringing a prospective lucky purchaser,  Yes Mrs cricklybottom everything is covered with this one you can just dump and run.

"As with most family homes you need somewhere that you can dump and run, well close the door at least, here you have a really large utility room with door to the outside space so everything is covered."

I find the 30 years a bit suspect.

Unless you are Marcus PurpleCords, owner/head EAs, most peoples  'careers' as an EA end after 2 years andor first property down period.

if only they would price houses realistically, they would sell more 😆

That old chestnut. For the final time..... EA’s like any sales team need turnover and volume. 1 or 2% of £400k or £500k makes no difference if the house doesn’t sell in addition the actual amount the individual EA gets is a fraction of that 

To get a house on the books they have to agree to the stupid vendor price in the hope of whittling down later

There not but then again I treat people fairly and realistically - how many properties have you bought and sold personally to establish that view ?

I will take a guess in your funny little dark world you could subsitute the word salesman for EA as well ?

I agree but ...

To ge tthe business EAs know they have to value high.

Then they think they can get the price down a bit.

However ..... its doesn't work that as once a vendor gets a price in their thats what they stick to.

Both EAs and seller tend to be idiots.A more realistic strategy would be collect the LR data for nearby sales.

However .... that would be like a magician giving the trick away.

A hopeless sector, staffed by the clueless.

One excellent EA is dependent on another excellent EA in the chain unfortunately otherwise the whole lot goes. . unless their specialism is selling new builds to first time buyers. 

dealt with two sales so far and both were terrible silly games from the EA. 10k in commission paid and not once did they come in person with the buyer.  Not that you asked me but that is my experience. 

Tried to buy multiple homes after HTB was announced and the lies and miss information was blatant ring fenced housing for friends. so no to me they are scum nothing else,  anyone could do that job no training required at all.

Ive bought and sold many times, and also tried to buy many times. The best time was when i sold without an agent. I know they are liars, because its how they operate, they only let you buy the overpriced shit, never the prime fixer upper, that always goes to their mates or themselves. Nothing against salesmen, they are selling you a car or a patio, they dont have their own interests at heart. Thats why EAs are different. And it needs to be regulated so they cant see both the buyers and sellers hands.

Fair enough not my experience though - if it was that easy regulation or not the online portals would be more successful then they are. In my experience its the vendors and buyers that are the problem.

If you haven't run a business it is undoubtedly the biggest transaction you will have ever of done - seems to send people loopy

I agree with that - actually when we sold my Mums place the EA did just that my recent experience has been good (three sales in eighteen months ) but as posted on here if you expect a bad experience you will probably get it 😉
