Buyer beware, idiot with a semi-functioning brain in operation.Ever seen an estate agent discourage you from a buy simply because it’s not suitable? They’ll lie through their teeth in order to encourage a sale, even if they’re trying to flog a pile of shit.I recently read the results of a national survey, which listed estate agents as one of the most despised people among society, sitting comfortably below ticket inspectors.I can’t clarify how reliable the source was, but it sounded incredibly accurate.I place this show in the same league of "The Andy Milonakis Show." The only positive comment I have is that I now know to stay away from Laguna Beach when I travel south.
If you haven’t personally had a soul-destroying experience with one, the odds are that you’re a stone’s throw away from someone that has.Now, this may sound like a petulant and unfounded rant, but I assure you there’s substance in my allegation, and that’s proved by the incredible continuing growth and success of online estate agents.As already said, the online agent model is based on the premise that ‘anyone’ can sell their own home as long as they receive the leads. Estate Agents are protected from their own stupidity, because it’s not a hugely regulated industry.What chance do we as consumers have if they hate their own kind? Their level of communication will be at an all-time low and they’ll be working by their own schedule.I’m not just talking about feuds between rival companies; I’m also talking about in-house war. The reality is, during a property boom, houses sell themselves, so they really don’t have to do much ‘selling’ or provide much of a service.
