Hi! Ryan,
I beg to differ.
I engaged an exclusive agent to sell my inter terrace at MacPherson but he undersold my house by 1 million compared to another unit 2 units away which was also sold by him. Although my house was in original condition compared to the one sold for a million more which was in move in condition. So how can there be such a big price gap?
In hindsight, I should have engaged another agent to compete so that both agents would be on their toes.
So ideally, 2 agents instead of multiple agents.
What do you think?

I disagree. Competition is always good. I am currently selling my house myself and have invited agents who expressed interest to also market my place. But I will not give an exclusive mandate to any agent. So far, it has turned out well. The agents interested are often bringing potential buyers. They know they are also competing with me to sell my place. They also know I save a lot of money if I manage to find a buyer without the help of the agent. This is the minimum commission of 2.5% plus GST that keeps them keen on marketing… Read more »
