I am hoping that this thread maybe of benefit to anyone on this site who may have to deal with an Estate Agent or for those who would like to impart their experiences in having to deal with them in the past!
I am a potential first time buyer and have yet to start looking but a very close friend of mine (who I rented with for a number of years) has just bought his first home with his GF and it seems that he went through hell trying to deal with a number of estate agents. His most common experience was that he'd make an offer of 'x', the auctioneer would tell him that he would ring back the next day but would not call back for about 6/7 days and would then pretend that nothing happened.
As I am a potenital first time buyer and hope to start looking soon, has anyone out there had similar experiences?
I would like to hear all negative and indeed positive feedback with regards to dealing with Estate Agents (and the mind games they seem to play!)
