Property Tales Soaring In Run Up To The Budget

Recommended Posts

"The NAEA is constantly asking for everyone to cut their members some slack. Often insisting their members come in for too much unnecessary criticism. The NAEA often point to the "damned if you do, damned if you don`t" reputation of agents, added to the fact that they are often shot by both sides, vendor and buyer alike.

Their reputation and that of there members will not be helped by issuing press releases such as the one published below. The vague and misleading content is simply a clumsy public relations exercise which could quite easily backfire if subjected to scrutiny. This can only confirm most commentators suspicions, that such press releases must continue to be taken with a pinch of salt.

It is worth considering the facts with a year on year comparison, but not before mentioning one stunning fact that must have most agents very concerned. On average each agent now takes between 17-18 weeks to sell a property. This is a 100% increase in the time taken to sell since June-July 2005."

Has this increase been air brushed somewhat?
