Downturn

The estate agents I put my flat on the market with has gone out of business. I can't say I'm surprised as I've not heard a peep from them in ages, they've failed to get a single viewing on the flat (and it isn't that bogging) in roughly 8 weeks. Simon got a call from the company that has picked up the remaining properties on the books this afternoon, I didn't hear a thing because they failed to use the email address or the mobile number I gave them a month ago.

Actually I feel relieved, hopefully the lack of action on the flat was due to the failing company and not entirely due to the stagnating market. Anyways that's what I'm hoping, we've only had one viewer for this place in a month so it's not good out there at the moment. We will sell the properties eventually but I would like it to be sooner rather than later.

  1. I know it's not good as far as your concerned, but hearing about an estate agent going bust gave me a little warm feeling inside.

  2. Not good, but as long as it doesnt cost you any more, the new company will I hope come through for you Jane. (all fingers crossed).

  3. What Dan said, but, could the estate agent have failed because of the stagnating market?

  4. Leeds the stagnating market will be a huge part of their failure but based on their total inability to contact me over the last eight weeks I doubt it was the only cause.
