The country where folk (almost) like estate agents

Which is France, just for a change.

Asked whether they had a good or bad opinion of house pimps estate agents, some 32% had a good opinion, 54% a somewhat bad opinion and 14% a very bad opinion. The figure for total bad opinion is up two points from last year, so our Gallic chums would appear to be catching up.

While I have not been able to find a recent UK survey on all fours with those parameters, this one from April has 1% trusting estate agents. Further detail in the French survey has a mind-boggling 31% thinking agents have integrity. A rather lower figure than those who think Elvis lives, I imagine. In common with, I imagine, most folk I have my own horror story of being shafted by those odious wretches - yes, I am talking about you, Townends of Streatham Hill - but will spare readers the details.

The French trust Estate Agents - it's each other they don't trust.

And given the number of property sales that involve cash under the table, I am not surprised.
