Previous price is jeopardising my sale..

My property is showing a £25k drop on what it is listed at today and I have already lost one buyer as a consequence. How long must my property remain listed before it can be refreshed with the new price. Do I need to de-instruct my agent to accomplish this?

  • I don't quite follow the question, but are you saying the agent is marketing the property at say £75,000 but still has it listed at £100,000, and this is putting buyers off? If that is the scenario then the agent is not doing their job and I would consider disinstructing them and put it in writing you want the listing changed with immediate effect. All to often we see buyers suffer from poor agents.

  • Your agent can re-list a property within minutes, the best way however the get the price you want is to list the property at In Excess Of the amount you are hoping to achieve. This allows no room for negotiation below the amount and a possibility of a higher offer. Generally, the time taken to sell is dependant on the agent you use.
