It's not that these property sites are out of date but the apartments that are being advertised for rent don't actually exist. All the Agents are doing are advertising themselves. One tip, if the advertisment doesn't include actual pictures of the inside of the property, only the outside, pool etc, it's more than likely the Agent doesn't actually have the apartment for rent. All he/she's going to do is trawl through the net and call up other Agent's properties and try an co-broke
We already have a shortlist of some 10 condo's so the only thing needed to be done is make appointments.
Any tips one what the best approach is? Keep looking ourselves (have busy job and limited time) or get another agent?
I would just trawl the various property sites and call up Agents, will save having to pay Agent's fees as well
Issue there is how to find a good agent?
They rarely exsist. My approach, find a good property and then manage the Agent
When calling the Agents up I always get them to confirm that they are acting on behalf of the Landlord and stres to them that they are not in any way acting on behalf of me.24601 wrote:Hi all,
Quick question in relation to this. If I see a property of a mixed website with the agents details and then call that agent will he/she be happy to just show me that unit or will they insist that I take them on as my agent. Also is it still the case that rent over 3000 a month does not attract the agency fee?
