Kirstie Allsopp issues a warning after a buyer expresses dissatisfaction with estate agents.
KIRSTIE ALLSOPP provided another property insider tip on Twitter yesterday, after a buyer expressed dissatisfaction with the behavior of some estate agents.
Kirstie Allsopp, star of Location, Location, Location, frequently posts about real estate on social media. Kirstie, who co-hosts the Channel 4 show with Phil Spencer, a fellow property expert, gave some guidance to a customer hoping to buy a home in Cornwall. In recent months, the property market in the United Kingdom has exploded, with house prices soaring as a result of the stamp duty holiday and a shift in buyer sentiment.
As they find themselves working from home, many Britons have left the metropolis for more rural or coastal places.
The Twitter user explained to Kirstie that they were attempting to relocate to Cornwall but were having difficulty owing to fierce competition.
“I’m trying to move to Cornwall because I’m Cornish,” the buyer explained, “but I’ve got half of South East England and the Home Counties bidding against me, and I’m not happy with the way some of the agents are acting.”
Homeowners choose the buyer and the price, according to Kirstie, while estate brokers “just do their bidding.”
“I’m afraid it’s up to the homeowners; the agents only do their bidding,” she continued.
“All sorts of things would change if homeowners realized that accepting a little less from a local was a good idea.”
The buyer expressed their dissatisfaction with the ongoing rise in house prices.
“Thank you, I’m also fairly frustrated with the rate at which prices are growing, and you can see that a lot of the houses aren’t worth the money they’re being guided at,” they said.
“People are bidding, no, offering, much over the suggested price; I’ve offered over £21,000 over the guide price and come nowhere close.”
According to Halifax’s newest house price index, the average property price in the UK is now £260,358.
The average UK house price fell by 0.5 percent in June, the first monthly drop since January, according to the latest numbers.
House prices, on the other hand, are still more than £21,000 more than they were this time last year.
