Enjoy the holiday!
The same sort of marketing is done by Agents not putting the price on flyers to solicit calls from possible home buyers. I would never work with an agent who plays those types of games.... and you can also guess that in most cases the home is overpriced for the market.
I just wish it was harder to get a real estate license - they just need a few hours of instruction and a few hours yearly to keep their license to be able to handle the most prized possession most of us own - our homes! Where one little bobble or mistake can cost us homeowners thousands! Okay, I'll put back on my Realtor cap - every broker/owner should require about triple the training that is required - but most don't! Its a shame we have to be regulated as we are - we are the oldest association is existence and try to keep the laws in check, friendly to home owners! That is our RPAC committee, that many Realtors do not contribute to even though it protects their business - thats a shame too!
Hope this helps!
Let me know if you need any assistance with your home search!!
You bring up an interesting topic and are "on the mark" with your observation. Many area multiple listing services make it mandatory the a frontal view picture is included in the photo presentation or it will not publish th property.
Until this is done, many people will continue to play games with the pictures........
This happened to my buyer & myself last weekend -- and every house without the exterior front photo had formstone instead of brick so we didn't even go inside. Many times when a rehab has been done on a house, the contractor takes the formstone off and puts brick up for aesthetics.
I hope that helps!
Please let me know if I can help you further.
ask your Realtor to see the home for you, then you will know if its worth your time.
