Why do estate agents make me so cross?
Our purchasers are pushing for us to confirm a completion date. I email agent to ask a couple of questions about timescales and to confirm the details of what happens if the vendor of the house we have our eye on dies mid deal.
After half an hour of conversation during which I managed to drop in that I am going tomorrow to see a house that a neighbour has told me will be coming on the market, he admits he doesn't know the answer to the questions I asked. But would I like to go and see a couple of totally unsuitable houses?
And ended up with. would I like to come over for an aperatif with him and his wife. Sure I say, that would be lovely. Oh, says he, I'm fully booked for a while but I'll let you know when.
I think I've answered my own question.
