|Arja Well done but what you might not know is that there might have been buyer/.buyers out there prepared for various reasons which arent revealed by a quick trawl around Zoopla/Rightmove to pay that little bit more . The market moves very quickly and historic transactions dont necessarily mean todays price . Maybe some money was paid off contract for" fixtures and fittings" to bring it down below the stamp duty threshold That of course works both ways
The real local agent might already know who they are when he came for the inspection who might have bid the price up dwarfing any savings on fees Purplebricks have 8 on in my patch 3 have been on over a year? As a potential buyer I would be slightly wary of buying off a seller like Purpelbricks maybe totally wrong but my first thouight that the vendor might be difficult to deal with as they have already demonstrated by the chep selling option that they are looking to extract as much out of the deal as they can possibly can Im sure Ih _ can vouch for this but how many times ha someone come in to an estate agents with a fixed ideas saying they want such a such house in such a such area at such a such price The agent works the oracle and highlights a total different proposition which they hadnt considered before and ends up buying|
|We're in a post Brexit boom...hxxp://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/10/were-in-a-post-brexit-building-boom/|
|Sounds like you were lucky - that is certainly not the norm! Local experts? Yeah sure|
|horrific chart even though a slight rally recently . It surprises me that online agents still only have about 5% market share and I sold my house a year ago with one and only paid £500 in total saving me over £2000. People are so indoctrinated into using High Street agents that it might take some years before things change much . I got excellent service and MUCH BETTER than I got from High Street agents in the past .|
|Agree. How's the auctions going?|
|Maybe .She certainly hasnt earned her spurs .If thats the case she has only just put in place her "Building for the Future " so if there are any "synergies" they havent had chance to bed in yet .Presumably the BODS would have endorsed her new policies She only announced the office closures last month You would have thought they would give her to the spring to see how allthe change have panned out but maybe market noise which must now be deafening might hasten her departure sooner rather than later
I agree a new CEO would of course raise expectations and maybe boost the share price but long term I dont think they are going to be able to reduce the debt mangebale or otherwise-damage done|
|Platt leaving? Takeover? Not sure, but something is brewing thats for sure! Reminds me very much of RTN a few months back. Same type of accumulation occurred there whilst the share price dropped. And before you know it the reason for the hedgy accumulation became clear - CEO was replaced. By the time that was announced the share price was up 50%. Wouldn't surprise me at all if Platts about to get the sack. That would certainly explain the accumulation over the past couple of months by those in the know. BTW Google finance says 8.49.|
|According to LSE Countrywide's P/E is 10+ which makes it overvalued comapared to its peer group especially as its carrying so much debt Im surprised myself that within 24 hours the market is already pushing it back under 200 p

|Winkworths have the best model for a listed agent with its franchised operation where the business is run by those with high equity stakes
Very surprised thatt ih_ an independent estate agent thinks the corporate giants are going to win an inceasingly higher % of instructions|

|Which star striker has left today?
Lets face it the only good piece of business was the sale of the last tranche of Zoopla shares for £5m over and above value spelt out in the summer report going somewat towards reducing the £100m extra debt mountain they have increased since last year Be interesting to see the impact of the closure of the 50+offices on both revenue and costs|
