We responded to a listing by Express on Rightmove. The advert both on Rightmove and on their own website stated the property had been substantially reduced from a previous asking price, and that the vendor was looking for offers over £459k for a quicker than average sale. We have no property to sell and offered first £460k, then £470k and finally our top price of £480k. All were refused and after much pushing, Epress informed me that the vendor had already turned down an offer of £495k with a previous agent. I'm afraid I consider that false advertising. We wasted our time viewing and negotiating, when no offer less than £40k over the asking price was going to be acceptable !! Needless to say we will be avoiding property marketed by Express in future.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Advertised the property at a price much closer to what was actually required by the vendor.
