Ea's Getting Desperate

Recommended Posts

Local paper used to have about 8 pages of houses. Down to two now.

One of the adverts has a big box which says:

"SO YOU'RE HOPING TO SELL YOUR PROPERTY THIS SIDE OF CHRISTMAS.

UNFORTUNATELY THE HOUSING MARKET ISN'T LIKELY TO CHANGE SOON.

IF YOU SERIOUSLY WANT TO SELL YOUR PROPERTY, CALL AND SPEAK TO ONE OF THE TEAM TODAY"

It seems to be set up by Edwards Estate agents, then they list a website www.cantsellestateagents.co.uk which doesn't seem to be up and running yet.

That really is a cry for help isn't it. It doesn't make it any clearer. And this is Bristol, which has always been pretty robust.

Further to my post above - a second EA in town has just closed. A notice on the door says they're taking a break for a week and then will reopen.

Is this a ploy to get vendors to reduce prices?

Our local weekly had much reduced EA ads last week - also one of the bigger EA's has just closed down.

My local rag came through last night. Much thinner than previously, and most of the housing section is now mainly rentals.

Similar desperation in Scarborough. Center pages in local paper.

DON'T BELEIVE THE MEDIA DOOM AND GLOOM

DEAL WITH THE ESTAGE AGENT THAT IS STILL SELLING.

Also another point that I would share with you. I passed a conversion of an old school into flats in Bridlington with a big banner out saying "HURRY SELLING FAST!" had to take a moment to have a chuckle to myself :lol:

What used to be a separate supplement with the "Beds on Sunday" is now a few pages in the centre forming part of the main paper. The Thursday "Times and Citizen" supplement is also getting thinner.
