The easiest money in the world to spend is other peoples.
When you are selling in a property boom, how much do you need to spend to reach the target market? The answer is a lot less than you think and definitely less than the agent is likely to recommend.
Two symptoms of a booming market are low stock levels and increasing buyer demand. Therefore, active buyers have a smaller selection of property to choose from which subsequently sees each listing attract more buyers than it normally may.
