  • No doubt the owner, like those on commission never put anything away for a rainy day. Oh well, they’d best start that teacher training course.

  • Estate Agents they don’t arf make me larf. EA speak:

    solarly challenged = “rainy day”
    room for improvement = “garden shed”
    riverside property = “flooding certainty”
    good time for first time buyers = “buy your negative equity bonds from us”
    lively nightlife = “next door to late night opening pub with 300 people smoking fags next to your front door every day”
    sea view = “upstairs toilet, stand on loo, peer out of top left hand corner of window… there, the sea”
    investment opportunities = “collapsing market”
    priced to sell = “don’t get a survey”
    property experts = “tw*t with goo in his hair and a clipboard”
    internal viewing recommended = “next to the sewage works”
    career opportunity = “signing on”

  • Maybe we need a new website, ea-implode.co.uk, to match the American’s Mortgage-Lender Implode-o-meter at http://www.ml-implode.com

    When i sold my flat last August I was only in there once whilst there was a viewing. The complete BS that spewed out made it far far too embarrassing for me to be around.
    I know it was in my interest, but OMG. Cringeworthy is all I can say. All served up with a smile 🙂

  • I was once shown around a house with “character features”.

    When I asked exactly what these character features were, the young professional looked around the room and said “erm……..the windows?”

    noonio – Not clever, that EA/Nazi comment. The propaganda machine helped justify the murder of millions. Not funny at all.

  • And the EA’s have helped millions of people into negative equity, lives ruined, children not able to go to university, family breakdown, er.. shall I go on.

    By any chance, are you an estate agent?

    No. I am Jewish. My family came here from Germany in the thirties to escape Nazism. Shame on you for your flippancy.
