This is an unfortunate incident that happens time and again. However in DC because there is so much renovation going on often the items listed in the advertising should say "could be" or "possible". As was stated by the other posters if this was an agent who is listing the property you have some recourse and the proper steps were listed, if not then its just another day in real estate. Either way lets move forward to your goal "Finding You Your Home of Choice"!
