I co-run a property development fund and am amazed by my recent experience.

Recently, they sold a flat on Wellmeadow road, hither green. Its a small two bed at an. attractive asking price (£180k). I know the area well & even in need of considerable work, it was worth at least £200k.

I and my colleagues phone Acorn a total of 8 times in an attempt to arrange a viewing. We were not called back once. We told them we were cash buyers & could therefore move very quickly. I personally made it very clear on about the 6th call that i thought the price was very attractive - i was hoping to spur them on a bit........

Excuses ranged from 'viewings are very difficult to arrange, due to unruly tennants' to 'we are very busy and our properties are selling like hotcakes' - the inference being that they were too busy to do their actual job. The only other time I've seen such bad service was when a competitor bidder, some years ago now, was giving backhanders to agents in return for low prices - something the agents achieved via 'bad marketing'.

I cant say for sure but i wouldn't be at all surprised if thats what was going on here.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Actually arrange viewings for interested parties.......

I currently have a house on the market with Catford Acorn. It has been with them now for about a month, I've had no paperwork through, there is no board up and have had one viewing. While I acknowledge that there is a lot of work needed on my property, I was made an offer by this one viewer which was £35,000 below the asking price - apparently he is somebody who has been in the building trade and would like a project! When I only reduced the price by £27,000 he wasn't interested.... Acorn will say that it is hard to gain access to the property because my son is at work all week and that is why there have not been more than one viewer but the fact is that he has only been approached about this one viewing and he is around in the evenings and weekends. I shall keep the site posted as to developments!!!!

Dear Client,

I am sorry you feel this way. If you really did try this hard to get in why did you not speak to a manager?
We have had our problems getting in to this property as there is a council tenant in this property who is very hard to get hold of.
I would have to disagree strongly with the property being under priced as it was valued accordingly and no such judgement can be made without seeing the property.

We do appreciate your comments and we are certainly looking to improve our already number one position in the SE6 area.

Regards
