Put our house on the market in March. Priced it at 12-15% lower than similar properties in the area. Have had less than a handful of viewers.
Feel the agent isn’t being proactive. I approached the agent to reduce the price signifiantly to get more viewers (to their surprise) and am the one pushing the agent to call people on their books.
Have noticed signs where there are two agents selling. Does anyone know what happens in those cicumstances - do I need to pay more advertising fees to the second agent, do both agents get some kind of commission or is it a case of winner takes all - whichever agents gets the sale gets the full commission. Of course I could just phone and ask them but I’d like to have an idea of what the norm is before I negotiate.
We had an EA like this terrible altogether bad communicator - told us that someone had made an offer weeks afterwards but didn’t relay this as we had the property on at X amount, EA would make comments like I told you about the couple who rang from such and such -eh no you didn’t we got rid in the end. I done a check on collapso.net of our house the price it was first listed at didn’t show? You may have a problem if you signed to say your EA as the sole letting agent, So you might have to change EA. I know sometimes there can be two EA is people are separated and they both want their own agent. Good Luck we listed 50k lower than similar smaller properties and 300k lower than the peak.We are even including most of furniture and all electrical stuff as we are going to the U.S but since its over 300k buyers are hard to come by mainly cash buyers as EA said people are finding get money out of the banks. Seriously considering renting it at this stage
I agree with mr_anderson. Keep dropping the price. Your house is only worth what somebody wishes to pay.
Also if you dont like the job the agent is doing then just get a new one. Dont have two at the same time, it will end up causing confusion at the very least.
