So I am in the process of selling my property and have a strong feeling the agent is attempting conditioning techniques on me. My property is very desireable for the suburb I am selling in, low entry point, renovated and presents beautifully and I can say with all honesty that is not me being naive. We have had 3 opens with 30 groups coming through which is huge numbers! I drove past the first open and it was like a party was going on. My agent however is saying things like "we are getting the numbers but no one is even talking the lower of our figure", "they like the suburb but XYZ is wrong with the property", "we are getting no offers".etc which then has lead to "you now really need to think about what your exit is, what would you accept". I have always kept my cool because my exit is if it doesn't sell for what I want I'll rent it. I myself am renting in the suburb and when I was going to opens there were lines out the door. I have no doubt I will get a great rental return and I have made the agent know this. What was interesting last night though is I spoke to a friend who sold through this same agent and said they were told exaxtly the same thing! Nothing, nothing and then week before auction "oh I have this offer, it's X amount" which to them was 30k under there reserve. They said no, went to auction and sold over reserve. The nature of it is that 30k difference to an agent is $600 but losing the sale is $10k plus and I have a strong feeling I will have an offer in the coming week before auction. I am not going to say anything and let it play out as my exit strategy is sound but I am annoyed! We recently sold my mother is laws property and exaxtly the same thing! That time though was "buyers are talking 550, you need to consider reserve" we basically said get stuffed and sold for 700k.
