AVOID! AVOID! AVOID! Enfield estate agency advertise cheap affordable properties to attract viewing BUT Its just a Gazumping after and that's what they do.
A 3 bed house for sale with the Asking Price of £169.950 (its not advertised as Guide Price or Tender or any kind of bidding).
I thought its good for my little family to turn it into a nice home and good space for children.
At first I offered £168K after my second viewing. The young lady named Bethany a trainee from Enfield called me after a while on the same day saying that she has another offer and I really need to go up to the asking price which I did and so she informed the vender.
After a short while Bethany called again saying the seller is happy but he would have to ask his family if its ok to go ahead with the sale??!!!. I started thinking ¢â‚¬Å“why would the seller has to ask his family when he got the price he wanted?????¢â‚¬Â there is something not right.
Later on the same day I fixed an appointment to see my bank and to go throught the mortgage process on the bases of £169.950 agreed price.
Bethany called after saying that I need to consider increasing my offer as there are more people interesting as she still viewing the house to more people even though I agreed to pay the asking price and so I added £2000 and she called again and I added more to make it £175,000 and finally she called again and I offered £185,000.00 and at the end she called me saying Im sorry we cant sell you the house as someone is paying cash.
I was disgusted with fact that how many people times is wasted and Why they didn't advertised the house as a tender?? Even if I was buying the house from Ebay I could see If Im the highest bidder! Its so unprofessional company and me and my family felt we have been played out as they played games with so many other people.
This Enfield estate in Bournemouth should really be monitored as I believe they are running some sort of scam.
