    Very informative article, thank you Neil.

    It has been a while since I have sold a property but I now see that most agents are asking for fees up front to cover advertising. This fee can be about $3000 and this is on top of their commission.

    What is going on?

    Brilliant, my elderly mum dealt with an ‘credible’ (????) agency (franchise of YPA) who did absolutely *** nothing in 90 days on the market not a footprint, advertising fees were charged even though the property did NOT SELL to find partial advertising was created the other half wasn’t, the agent also ‘spruiked’ over the mobile $100k less then $900k mum stated she wanted when the contract was signed up, his offsider who was never introduced upon signing the contract told our ‘relative’ that she can negotiate for $700k upword, although there was an agreement for advertising but it did not eventuate as stated. When asked for an invoice/s charged for advertising ‘copy n paste’ was received via email/s, absolutely no credibility as to what really transpired. Afte so much talking on the phone and emails ….nothing. Mum refused to pay until she was given proper account for advertising they have paid for. A year later they ‘on sold’ her ad account to a wannabee money chasers. They also wiped the SMS’s used to negotiate these ad accounts just figures from the sky sent out… The agent who was away during the end of house sale campaign called me after they have received termination notice advising me that he has a “buyer” and they’re in Bali….turned tb his friends and had no intention to buy this property … Anyway the ‘two sales agents’ were booted a month or so later after I helped mum to terminate their agency contract. Have contacted REIV and ACCC, both have advised me to take this agency to VCAT as they have breached the Victorian state laws regarding price baiting, etc. Have a miles of quite educational reads and SADLY most RE Agents operating the Australian landscape are less than car sales people. BTW> Neil, I’ve known about you since the 80’s, keep up the good work and of those haters ever cross my path will ‘serve’ ’em to ACCC and VCAT.
