I have the suspicion that many EAs whip the "under offer" signs up as soon as a potential buyer agrees to a viewing.

Something else I noticed, in the local rag a house was recently advertised as "sold within a week!" Since this house is around the corner from me I know it happened to be sold about 4 months ago afterhaving a for sale board outside for months and months!!

:lol:

Every second property on FindaProperty is 'under offer'. But I'm sure that I have seen the same properties come up again and again. Also, they leave the 'sold' ones on for ages.

On the boards.

Is it paranoid to suggest that houses that were 'For Sale' weren't really For sale but only FOR SALE so a FTB encouraging SOLD sign can miraculously go up?

Those signs are for some people the ONLY indicator of the market!

A house near me has been 'flying off the shelf' so much that it has sold three/four times in as many months!!

The owners must be so pissed off that they now remove the 'Sold' sign back to 'For Sale' because it did not sell.

Rightmove has it as 'Sold'.

Still, they have kept the asking price at £699 950 for the last four months, so that equals a bargain/reduction yes?

£400k max for cash?

OK £350k.

"FOR SALE" following by a another "SOLD" sign (coz somebody enquired by telephone if it was still on the market) are another way for VI's to perpetuate the illusion - it's just designed to drum up more business

IIRC some EAs have put up FOR SALE/SOLD signs outside houses that were never for sale - the owners had to ring the EAs to come and remove them...
