It seem many houses are up for sale. the question I have why the high prices? What is the average commission the Agents are asking you right now? Do you think it’s best when you sell your house privately? I been in the market looking for a house but seem even the smallest house is going for R450 000. many of the sellers are telling me the agent commission is pushing up the price. We have been loosing many houses due to bank foreclosure, unemployment and over spending. I have seen people loosing and having to sell that just took out a few thousand so that the 2 child can have a room, this after almost completely paying off their bond. They loose their job and the bank foreclose? to think the bank actually got bank double what you lent already and feel it’s OK to let people seek other accommodation…..Hello the person lost their job, i think they should at least give the person 6 months chance only after this should hey advise the person to sell before blacklisting and foreclosing anything. What do you think?
