How to beat those ‘Cheap as Chips’ Estate Agents
Its really hard being an estate agent at the moment.
Each week another agent opens up in you patch but the number of properties coming on to the market has steadily been dropping over the last few years … and to add insult to injury .. there is a fee war between agents … and then to pour salt on the wound .. we have those online/callcentre agents with their … cheapaschips £700 to sell your house fee’s .. I really feel for you guys
Many of you reading this have been in agency years …. you don’t cut corners, you spend real money on marketing on all the portals, decent brochures, professional floor plans, professional photos, awesome expensive websites, money sapping High St premises, you qualify offers (and I mean really qualify them and not just accept a note on the back of fag packet from their Mum saying they are ok for a mortgage), you check the whole chain and ring all the parties and solicitors every week once SSTC … you are the professional estate agent
.. but you have to put up with wet behind the ear ‘just out of school ‘ silver tongued young whippersnapper agents with three GSCE’s and 19 months negotiating experience calling themselves ‘property experts’ because some online or corporate has blown smoke up their backside.. selling themselves on the altar of cheap fees..
Enough is enough …its time to fight back..
…. time to prove you are the professional estate agent you know you are, the awesome agent your family and friends know, your town’s property expert, THE property guru of your town .. the main man(or lady) of property in your patch .. in your Manor
.. but how do you do that … how can you prove that, if you don’t get called out to the free val / market appraisal .. because estate agency is a people business .. not a property business.
Easy … do this …
… and here is the best bit … It works .. look at all the agents talking about …. the link is here … have look … (only if you are your town’s Property guru)
