Two Rightmove Listings, Two Different Prices

Recommended Posts

Why bother neogotiating a price when you can just shop around?

WHY PAY THE FULL ASKING, when if you look carefully, you can find another vendor with a cheaper price! £15,000.00 pounds cheaper. Count em, ONE, FIVE THOUSAND POUNDS SAVING.

Vendor one - http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-672...pa_n=2&tr_t=buy £85,000

Under the posh Waterfield and Standford estate agent who sells it as a "apartment"

Vendor two - http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-664...pa_n=4&tr_t=buy £70,000

Under the bog standard Halifax estate agent who sells it as a "flat"

Its ok to swallow your pride sometimes - go for the flat no one will know otherwise- :rolleyes:

There's an instant 15k profit in there fore you. Buy it & keep it on with the other agent in the meantime. Easy money.

Actually I suspect you could just offer £65K (maybe less) on the cheaper one.

And not make any profits as thats all its worth :lol:

do you really think it is even worth that?

c'mon - it's on fratton road, busy as hell with traffic, and should be marketed as a dive rather than a flat or apartment.

not so long ago 65k would have bought you one of the bigger terraces on a nicer street in portsmouth..

interesting that they paid 70k for it - hardly a good profit for them:

nice research ca-uk

ok its still a rip off

15K off 85K is a 17.6% difference - the high price is just kite flying, as I suspect most of the no chain properties are

its right next to a very busy traffic light crossing as you can tell by the road markings.

So in your bedroom all you can hear is "BEEP BEEP BEEP" when people press the button to cross. Then you hear SCREEEACHING OF TYRES AS CARS STOP. AND BRROOOOOOOOOOOM as they go off again.

They obviously had trouble letting it out - so why would they sell

Probably worth 30K of real money.
