    A great article that tells it like it is. I’ve always considered Real Estate agents as parasites…they feed off the unknowing sellers of houses. I remember one guy(an agent) who was married to a distant relative. He was a multi millionaire at the age of 25, from selling houses. He was a real gambler who relied on the ignorance of sellers. As it turned out he was also a racetrack gambler who ultimately lost pretty much everything to the bookies.
    My Mother-In-Law will be selling her family home of 60+ years in Sydney shortly and unfortunately she has been “groomed” by an alleged trusted friend who is a retired agent. I’ve already received some angry animosity from this guy because I mentioned Neil Jenman. She has been steered in the direction of a son, who is with a very big well known Agency. Unfortunately I will have limited, if any say, in how the sale goes ahead, but I will be pushing for guidance from Neil.

    You advice is always well worth listening to. Since reading your books and articles I am conscious agents do themselves a disservice when they are not very well trained or have a superior attitude towards home owners. Where do agents get good training?

    So, what about those Affordable Housing/Granny Flats which are approved in lanes. People rent those out and don’t realise that they are actually living in at least 5 (2 beside them and 3 over the lane) people’s back yards. The noise of the children, chooks and dogs carry up to their lounge and bed rooms. If you are purchasing a home with a granny flat (which incidentally grannies can’t get up the stairs or move furniture up or down the stairs) and renting it out please let the new purchasers know what they are getting themselves in for?
