Dealing with estate agents

Buying from estate agents. The only way to get the very best no brainer deals is to be the investor an estate agent rings first. So when someone comes into their office and wants to sell their property quickly you are their first call. It is important that the person you are dealing with knows how to create a deal. How can you be the estate agents first call? Let’s start from the beginning. The best days to call on an estate agent are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday’s.

Bank of England - Bank Rate remains at 0.5%

The Bank of Englands Monetary Policy Committee today announced that it had voted to keep the Bank Rate at the all time low of 0.5%, along with maintaining the size of the asset purchase programme (quantitative easing). It was widely expected to remain at 0.5% especially with the current uncertainty due to the failure of the British people to clearly vote one party into power, and the European and Euro issues.

A favourite one that Estate Agents use is to take your house on to their books at a higher price than you were expecting. Suppose you were expecting to get £200,000 for your property. The typical Agent will visit the property and after a cursory examination will ask you how much you are expecting for it. (Note, he has no idea how much it’s worth!), When you say £200,000, he will say ‘No problem, I think it’s worth more than that. We could try for £225,000’. Naturally you will be overjoyed and you will agree to let him take it on his books. The next thing that happens is that you probably will get no...
