Some estate agents believe that the best and quickest way to secure your instruction to sell is simply by over valuation. This tactic benefits no one, except perhaps the agent themselves. After a week or two, having allowed your property to languish on the internet, they will ask that you agree to a reduction in the asking price. If you consider the fact that properties gain the most interest during their first week of marketing, it is hard to quantify the detrimental effect this practice has upon the marketing of your property. There are numerous tools available on-line to potential buyers in order that they are able to be more market savvy. Furthermore, the reduction in the asking price in itself sends out the wrong messaging to the market place.We believe in providing sound honest and achievable appraisals based on the current market, comparable evidence, and daily feedback from our dealings with numerous surveyors, and by discussing with you the client, your expectations.
