Before even considering to actually walk through a property I always do a driveby to survey the neighborhood. Without the address this can't be accomplished without first contacting an agent to obtain the info which often leaves the agent with a false sense of interest on your part. I've been pestered by agents for weeks following up on address inquiries that I ultimately had no interest in once I found out the location. Honestly, unless I absolutely HAVE to see the property for some reason or another, I skip over those properties without addresses all together.
Before anyone gets in a tizzy, I AM working with an agent who has since proven himself to be useless. Rather than sifting through the equally useless agents out there until I find one who could actually assit us I've chosen to just handle our search myself.
Welcome to Trulia Voices and thank you for your question. Since you've manually submitted your listing to us, you have the ability to edit it and specify that we don't display the address.
Access the link below to navigate to the My Listings section of your account and select the link to 'Edit listing details'. Then, select the option to edit the listing information. On the editing page, above the address field you'll find an option that says 'Don't publicly display listing address.' Check that option, save your changes, and our display will update within 24 to 36 hours at which time the address will be removed.
Please let us know if you have any difficulties with this process or if you have any further questions or concerns.
As stated by curious Newb- giving out the address doesn't guarantee a sale nor does it mean you are buying when you call- but when you have several listings in the area-simply allows the agent to possibly give you other options. Sorry you have been so turned off-many agents are not making any money-need to rethink the old train of thought. Terry K 718-614-3167 cell or firstname.lastname@example.org
Buyers look at the surroundings first before setting appointments when they have the address...
