    I agree with your opinion on most real estate salesmen, they just don’t know how to sell most of all only favour the purchaser instead of the vendor ,who actually pays their wage.
    It is well known fact that bad sales people can only sell on price alone, get them to come down and often tell the purchaser that the vendor has to much on it
    Therefore it is better for both parties to come to an understanding before listing to get the price right.
    If the agent thinks he can’t sell at the owners price simple don’t list it and be honest and say I can’t sell it for that price ,rather than waste both parties time.
    I am selling my home for $600,00 and am paying 3% commission that’s $18,000 , if the same agent sells a home for $300,000 he gets a commission of $9,000 naturally half but my home is easier to sell I feel I am being ripped off.
    I feel there should be a fairer deal as both sales get exactly the same advertising and promotion.
    There should be a fairer scale of payment for agents. I have to buy a new car virtually for an agent to sell my home.
    As we see on TV Australian retailers can only sell on price they promise fake discounts and suck the public in .
    By teaching real estate agents how to sell and list honestly is a step in the right direction
