Rightmove Figures Must Be Boosted By This.

Recommended Posts

I have noticed several houses on Rightmove that are SSTC with one agent, while still being available with another. I think this is beause when a seller moves agent, the old agent puts SSTC on the property and leaves it on rightmove. This skews the figures of number of houses sold and prices.

Anyone got any thoughts or experiences of this?

Surely they must have systems in place to stop a property being counted twice when they produce their figures.

what leads you to believe that when a seller switches agent the old ea marks the property as sstc?

i cant see any rational reason for this and it is probably also mis-reperesentation.

I think that if it's a joint agent then the agent that made the sale marks it SSTC or under offer but the other agent leaves it on the market (hoping to get another buyer?) That is what seems to hsve happened with our property.
