Credit to Rightmove who are making a major change to the management of agents and new listings on their site.
Unscrupulous agents will no longer be able to launch and then a few weeks later, take that same property off Rightmove in order to match out (property alert) to Rightmove subscribers again. Some properties are repeatedly removed and re listed and this is distorting the market data and deceiving. Neither will doing this within 14 weeks of the initial launch change the ‘Listing Date’ of the ORIGINAL launch….another method used by some to give the impression that the house has been on the market for a shorter time than is actually the case. This new policy will give buyers an accurate picture on marketing history and not deceive prospective buyers which is what happens currently when agents adopt this policy.
