If 3 bed hasnt sold at £185k why another exactly same property go on market at £200K??

Yes, County Drive is a desirable area but home owners must be realistic about the current market and home valuations. Over valued homes will not only NOT sell but not be viewed!

  • I couldn't agree with you more, properties are being over marketed, i started on a mission to sit down with people and discuss why i felt that their property wasnt being sold or viewed, you often get asked as an agent why is my property not selling well there stands a good chance it was marketed to highly in the first place, this problem could of been the agents or in some cases vendors themselves instruct agents for a higher price, do your research, look at a couple of comparison sites, you will end up with a lower and higher figure and your property should be marketed somewhere inbetween, just because an agent tells you that your property is worth 1000's it doesnt been to say that mortgage companies and such like agree, people have not got savings now a days, all i can say is people have been spoilt up until 5 years ago, now people are having to realise that they need to come down in value, does this mean the property market is falling well my answer is no just the fact that houses are being forced to now be marketed for a more realistic figure which is not a bad thing

  • Bad advice and guidance being the most likely. Sometimes it can be the case of an un realistic owner. Proof should always be shown as to why and how a marketing price has come about. Marketing at a higher figure because the house is 'worth it' - i can tell you it is not worth it! You miss out on potential buyers that are priced out of a house that more than likely that they would have ended up buying but instead, have had to go elsewhere. Good advice is better in the long run.
