Rightmove/estate Agent Conspiracy Theories!

Recommended Posts

Hello

I found it interesting today that a number of houses have magically reappeared all at the same time from their previous status of 'under offer' or 'sold stc' on the rightmove website. I'm normally a sceptic when it comes to conspiracy theories, but the timing of this given the other nights programme seemed too much of a coincidence. Would about 10 houses all have offers retracted/contracts fall through all on the same day?

Could be a conspiracy, could be estate agent put the changes into one bulk (though they don't do them in bulk when they go under offer/sold stc).

Also noticed how on rightmove you have to tick specifically to see under offer/sold stc - maybe agents use this change of status to stop them appearing in most peoples search, hiding them for a while so people don't notice they've been on the market for a long time.

Who knows.. not sure what the benefits would be and to who...

Another point i have just thought of - do these properties set as 'sold stc' then appear in the rightmove statistics - i.e - are rightmove statistics based on subject to contract agreements, or actual signed and completed sales?

Could be worth looking into..

No matter what we think - RM figures are speculative/selective/bias/cooked/unreliable.

If you remember that you will be alright :)

BTW Rightmoves March index was not published by ANYONE?

Have they lost credibility???

I think so :lol:

Was it published by Right Move? Have they stopped compiling it, or have people simply stopped reporting it?

One indicator of a bubble is indices proliferation: more measures of the price of whatever it is (tulips, gold, shares, etc). If Right Move have gone quiet, that's another indicator that the bubble is popping...

They have re-assessed their figures and found a flaw. They will not report for fear of a share slide. :lol::lol: (that is almost believable)

hence the trolls(sad muppets)
