Why use this?
As a buyer, one of the main things you're interested in are price changes, right? Right. Knowing a property's history gives you, the buyer, a much better idea of the mindset of a seller, which is very valuable knowledge before entering negotiations.
For example, if a seller has dropped their prices several times in the last few months, you can be sure they're eager to sell. On the other hand, if a house has been on the market for years without much activity, it's less likely that the seller is clued in to the current market and their expectations may be unrealistic.

Price Drops »
Estate Agents often:
- Modify the ad's 'entered' date to make a property seem like it's fresh on the market
- Or, re-create a whole knew ad, having the same effect
- Increase price above actual expectation, just so an initial offer will be high
- Change a price to Price On Application, because of lack of interest in an overpriced property

People are trading up, and if Mover Mark says it's true, I believe him...Jan 21, 2017 2:30
If you want to know what is going on in the property market don't talk to an estate agent. The best leading indicator of the market is Mover Mark - the king of furniture movers. A conversation with a lad in a big white van stuffed to the gills with other people's possessions is by far the most instructive steer you will get on the property market.
