“Portal Juggling”? – not here!

This is probably a new term to most of us, but National Trading Standards recently issued a warning to Estate Agents about ‘Portal Juggling’ where properties are relisted as ‘new’ on property web sites, although they have been for sale for some time. This is intended to mislead potential purchasers about the sale.

Perhaps this is a problem with residential properties in slow sale periods, but a good agent should always date all their information – whether online, in emails, or in printed material. A marketing history could also be clearly shown.

Rest assured that no ABP Property Consultant agency work involving sales and lettings will ever imply that any property is ‘new’ to the market unless it clearly is!
