Buying a home? Watch out for these estate agent tricks

If you, or anybody you know is buying a home, you might find an article I wrote interesting and even useful http://ezinearticles.com/?Buying-a-Home?-Watch-Out-For-These-Estate-Agent-Tricks&id=3609738

And if you are either selling or buying a home, my experience is that one bunch you should be very careful with is the Countrywide Group. Countrywide claim to be “The UK’s largest and most successful estate agency and property services Group” and they seem to be based in the Cayman Islands – I wonder why. They own 47 estate agency chains including: Austin & Wyatt, Faron Sutaria, Palmer Snell, Hamptons, John D Wood and many more. They will offer you all kinds of services like conveyancing, surveys, mortgage advice and much more. I’m not suggesting for a moment that Countrywide would ever use any of the estate agents’ tricks I mention in my article. But in my limited experience, they do seem (I’ll put this politely) rather focused on “getting the sale” and cross-selling (making sure you buy their other services). For legal reasons, I will say no more.
