I just wondered whether anyone on here thought this was a scam by estate agents to just get you on their books/sell your house.
My husband and I live on a nice street in a not so nice area (yes I know we should have done it the other way round but that was 8 years ago so it's done now)....Well anyway we need to move house to get our little one in a nice school (yes I never thought we would resort to this either but when the local kids tell you to f**k off through the primary school railings well you move).
Anyway we have to sell house before January as this is the time you apply for schools (only just realised this and should have sold sooner)...anyway we had this flyer from Dixons through the front door which reads.....
"Mr K has completed a search & find application form and is looking for a house on your street and is hoping to find his ideal home before xmas. If you are interested in selling please give us a ring on this number blah, blah, blah...."
Now is this a ploy to get our trade? I phoned the number and the woman from the estate agents confirmed that one of her clients was looking for a property on our street (apparently his friend lives in our road an he wants to live there too). She instantly arranged a valuation (same day i.e.today!!!!). We've had the house valued but even though this bloke is interested they're still asking us for money to advertise our house on the market (ranging from £99 - £350). We are keen to sell but obviously don't want to be suckers....what do you all think???
