This estate agent Castle, their tactic seems to be to put everything on the market at ridiculously high valuations (perhaps how they get the vendor to sign with them) and then discount it heavily over the next couple of months. I’ve seen it so many times with this crowd. Anyone thinking of bidding on a place listed by Castle should be aware of this. Make sure they’ve had a few chunky discounts before you go in and low-ball them.
And with another estate agent.
