Estate Agents In Denial

Recommended Posts

The link below leads to Foxtons area magazines - the "Manager's View" summaries are hysterical:

In spite of the report being published in March, they are still talking about January and what a load of Bxllocks they are spouting....could actually be funny (if it wasn't so sad)...

Report published March 2008

January is traditionally a great time for the property market. As many post-Christmas buyers begin their search and City bonuses are released into the marketplace, demand levels inevitably increase. Competition for properties tends to intensify throughout the month, resulting in a strong start to the year which has historically set a precedent for ongoing success. At the moment, we have over 2,500 potential buyers to 300 properties on our books right now and are therefore predicting a healthy, more stable market in 2008, governed by sound economic factors and aided by a possible drop in interest rates ­ it would be a struggle to find any other investment that matches property in terms of security. This sustainable growth should ensure an end to press speculation and pave the way for a prosperous year for the property market.

I am dedicating this post to estate agents and the white lies they tell...other examples welcomed...

They are only white lies if nobody is fooled by them and lose their money as a result.

Behind the headline figures, Lilly said some areas of the country were faring better, with estate agents in Central London and some other major cities reporting business as usual.

He added: "We still have a long way to go before we see the difficulties of the late 1980s repeating themselves."

I'm certainly looking forward to getting this 'white lies' (aka denial) period out of the way!

Can't they be brought to a disciplinary committee just for this bo11ocks alone? If history gives any evidence on property, then it is that, first, the property is very illiquid making folk w/o any understanding of the property market and stop-loss principle very vulnerable. The anecdotal evidence suggests there is plenty of amateurs in property these days. Second, the history shows that property (REITs - Real Estate Investment Trusts) gives a relatively minor return (roughly in line with the growth in real wages) which is subject to high volatility. And finally, well, needless to add how high the valuations are these days relatively to the rental income and wages + credit squeeze and so on.
