Prospect Estate Agents [Mar. 25th, 2010|04:28 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Week and a half ago...
    Me: "Please come and value my house."
    Prospect: "When would you like?"
    Me: "How about Thursday?"
    Prospect: "Great. Now, are you looking to buy?"
    Me: "No, not at all, nothing like that, I have no intention to buy another property at this time."

Last Thursday...
    Prospect: "Good afternoon, how are things?"
    Me: "Things are great. This is my house -- what do you think?"
    Prospect: "We think it's worth about £X."

Last Friday...
    Prospect: *snail mail* "Further to our visit, we think your house is worth about £X."

    Prospect: *email* "Buy this completely different house here, it's lovely, only three times £X"

Now, see if you can guess which estate agent I won't be instructing when I come to sell.

I am so glad I gave up the Estate Agency game. Estate Agents realy know how to wind people up the wrong way. I used to work on the corporate side of things and used to have to speak to Residential Eatate agents all day long acting on behalf of vendors and buyers.

Sometimes it was like banging your head against a brick wall!

Got loads of funny stories out of my time in property, which was worth it.
