For example, the oldest trick in the book is for an Agent to suggest an inflated asking price. This may be in order to impress you enough to secure your business.

Your estate agents property advice can be a make or break situation. So good advice is key. A professional Estate Agent recognises their responsibility not only to address any questions posed by the Vendor, but sometimes, where appropriate, to go beyond the obvious. This is because there is often more than meets the eye to an otherwise straightforward market appraisal. Do you really wish to sell?
