Apart from the confusing bidding war with cash buyers bidding in 0's and 5's all over the place that I am not caught up in - I have been shocked by how lazy and inefficient the EAs are.
Some don't turn up, some don't return calls - some have attitudes that seems to suggest that we are still in 2006 and potential buyers should be grateful to allowed view. Some don't introduce themselves or shake hands when you meet.
One called me 'love' on the phone.
One (of the biggies) I spoke to today cannot do viewings after 5.30pm. They do some Saturday viewings but refuse to give a time until the day before - so you're supposed to clear your schedule, a week in advance, on the off chance they come back to you with a time.
Some can't do a viewing for a while because 'they're run off their feet with viewings.'
Some houses are' choc-a-block with viewings' (yet arriving there early for a peep, you see nobody but the owner hiding the dog)
The majority are acting like it is really easy to sell a house these days because of the long queues of no-chain cash-buyers chucking money around - maybe it's true?????
