    Hi Neil. You are absolutely correct. Half an hour I sold my apartment myself in Brisbane last year and wrote and continually updated my ad even putting up new photos and rearranging them. The interest was amazing and eventually sold, not for as much as I had hoped but that was a product of the market and a glut of apartments. Thanks for nothing BCC!
    Agents write terrible ads.

    Being an Investor and having bought & sold many properties I have regrets on many Sales. Ian’s comments are bang on the money. Many agents are NOT acting in the sellers best interests. I have sold min two properties that were under market price. Most disappointing and it hurts. I would suggest all sellers to heed his advise. But every property I have bought has been a very very good buy. Lex

    Hi Neil, I have been following you for years now after reading your books & have directed many people to you in the past. Neil, could you please send a copy of that add you have written. It sounds interesting. I was also after some advice re two properties I have & will be looking to sell in the new year after my partner retires. It may be better if I call your office sometime. Its too complicated for an Email.!

    I like your article. Yes, unfortunately some agents carry on like premadonnas. I’m sure a lot of properties on the Gold Coast are sold under true value.

    I would love to see the ‘before’ and ‘after’ ads!

    This sounds like so many agents who are just incredibly SLACK when selling people’s most valuable asset.

    When I sold my home about 8 years ago the agent wrote and produced ads that were DULL, DULL, DULL! Even though I asked for professional quality photos the agent used photos that looked they were shot on a potato. I received a few offers – but they were all well below my target sell price.

    I insisted on rewriting the ad myself and having professional photos taken. I highlighted what made the home of interest to a particular target audience. Within 3 weeks I had the perfect buyer who bought the home because I highlighted all of the things that weren’t mentioned in the original ad! (the buyer even said this).

    Purchaser paid $20k more than all of the previous offers received.

    Hi Neil.

    Another great article.
    I’d like to read the absolutely terrible and embarrassing advertisement.

    Thanks

    Hi Neil, we plan on selling our house next year sometime, so I would appreciate a copy of the advertisement you wrote. And I totally agree, some agents adverts and photo’s of the house they are selling are unoriginal and don’t do the best job representing the house.

    Ha, ha – love it – who is more passionate about your home than anyone else – YOU – unless of course, you have Neil Jenman on side….

    Hi Neil, great article. I have had similar issues with agents in the past when trying to sell properties. What would be interesting is if you compiled a book full of some of your greatest adds, I’m sure that a lot of agents could learn from your examples. Keep up the good work. Alex.
