House punting

No, that’s not a typo. Her majesty and I were looking through various websites this morning as we’re thinking about possibly maybe moving to a bigger place.

How inaccurate can you get websites to be? You ring up to ask for a viewing of property X only to be told that it was let “ages ago”. Update your website to let people know then!
My personal favourite was the place we’ve driven past with a To Let sign blatantly out front, a listing on two, yes two websites and you call the agent, its gone. REALLY? Really really?

Looks like they just leave them listed to inflate the number of properties they seem to be offering?

Rant over, I’d just love to see any other kind of company do business like that. Amazon, ebay? Here’s your new business model!

Her Majesty here, could really do with a website to get all the properties in one place, then you don’t need to trawl around the various towns visiting estate agents! oh hang on there is one! a lot of use that is tho!!

Ah yes, that would be the website (which shall remain nameless) which the estate agents would apparently not like you to go to as it keeps you away from theirs?
Shame is, neither of the things are accurate! Grrrrrr! 😀
