I just called them up to explain further – its 5% commission and apparently 1000E for the “refundable” marketing charge. so assume average house is around 400,000 at 5% = thats 20,000 euros commisson …. PLUS they would like us to pay in advance for their magazine and website 😈 😈 😈
I wonder how many people will go for this, not only are they making 20,000 which they split – or give – to the other agent???? so we pay this 1000E charge in advance to basically run the company?
Does anyone know if its a “real” company with staff and salesmen or just a call center with a website.
Sorry Inez but can’t agree that this sort of marketing shows faith in the market turning around. I’m more with the other view that its just a get rich quick scheme for the people behind the company.
I’d feel a lot more confident if a salesman came around and evaluated the house before all this talk of pay FIRST and then we’ll come round and photograph it for our website.
