Home buyers in London will most likely be gumpumped

"Gumpumped" is the fear of every buyer who thinks he will buy his dream home.

However, buyers outside the capital may feel relatively safe: The frustrating but not illegal practice of a home seller accepting a deal from one person to later refuse it in return for a higher bid from another buyer seems to be from London.

A staggering 66 percent of homebuyers claim they were gazumped last year, nearly twice as many as 2017 (35 percent). Only a fifth or fewer buyers in other parts of the UK report that they had a Gazump.

A staggering 66 percent of home-buyer home buyers gazped last year, nearly twice as many as 2017 (35 percent).

In the northeast, the proportion is 22 percent, the Northwest and the Midlands are with 21 percent in third place.

The study by real estate broker eMoov pointed out that London is gazumping capital due to the region's double-levered market. While the upper end of the market has cooled, there are still pockets where buyer demand and transaction levels are high, with gazumping still prevailing.

This means that in the slightly cooler areas of London, a small reduction in bid prices means savvy shoppers use these savings to lately submit a higher bid to secure a property without massively exceeding the budget.

The survey of 1,006 homeowners also found that first-time buyers, with 58 percent of 25-34 year-olds, are likely to be gumpumped, saying they ended up with the practice.

In total, 34 percent of men said they were gumpumped while only 16 percent of women said so.

However, the number of buyers gazping in the country over the past year has dropped from 36 percent in 2017 to 25 percent in 2018.

Sales agent Henry Pryor said the overall decline was "welcome" and said, "This is to be expected and no surprise, as the market cools, there is less chance that a second buyer will unexpectedly turn up and cancel an agreed deal."

He added, "The cyclical real estate market, which is cooling off in recent years due to falling prices, means that" Gazundering "is more likely to represent an unwelcome return, like the spirit of the Christmas season.

"This is the case when buyers give up their offer on the day of the contract change and give the seller the free choice to pick up a bird or basically go away.

"Although it is annoying and expensive for those, it is actually quite rare and most sales go through without this kind of problem.

# Since the market is expected to remain unchanged over the next two or three years, I do not expect any increase in this type of thing. An advantage of a more stable market is the increased security for anyone involved in buying and selling homes. & # 39;

Russell Quirk, founder and chief executive of Emoov.co.uk, said, "Although market conditions continue to be tough, the good news is at least that the gazpumping has declined as a result.

"Although we still have a steady number of sales per month despite the continued low inventories, there is no overwhelming appetite to buy as in previous years.

"As a result of this lower level of competition, fewer homeowners will receive a final higher offer at the expense of their existing buyer."

However, he added, "However, the art of Gazumping remains very prevalent throughout the capital, with demand at numerous locations still strong, although overall Topline numbers are slowing down."

A separate investigation shows that the cost of the collapse of a real estate sale is £ 2,727 for pointless legal costs and related fees for the marketing of an object.

The study, which consists of the campaign group HomeOwners Alliances and IMMP, a service that connects buyers and sellers online, found that more than 300,000 real estate transactions are conducted each year.

This means that homeowners in England and Wales spend £ 818 million a year on real estate sales that are unrealizable.
