At this rate I wonder if they’ll still be around when I buy in 2011?

Estate agencies face ‘15,000 job cuts’

"As many as 15,000 estate agency jobs will be lost this year as the growing crisis in the housing market takes its toll on companies in the sector, a leading economics forecaster has warned. Real estate will be the hardest hit industry in the wider business services sector, in which 40,000 jobs are set to be cut in 2008, according to the Centre for Economics and Business Research."

    No sympathy whatosever. Esate agents act neither for the vendor nor the buyer; merely for their own self-serving greed.

    I judge them to be on a par with the dog faeces which attached themselves to my shoe this morning.

    mmmmm didn’t Alistair Darling say “the economy is robust”? there seems to be an awful lot of job cullings
    going on at the moment, including my firm. + loads of shops down here getting left vacant for months.
    Love the video by the way, if there’s one thing I won’t miss its the plethora of EA shops down here.

  • How many estate agents are there?

    Can’t help thinking that if the house selling business was moderately efficient, 15,000 in total would be plenty..!
