Real estate professional and their brokers, fail to advise home sellers that if their home appears on the "internet" (the MLS syndicates to websites that DO NOT create this problem) via syndication to sites like Trulia and Zillow, that all control of the data is lost. The data, which may include floor plans, imagages or video of the interior will remain on these sites FOREVER and can be used for whatever purpose they intend. Often, this intent is the misreprestation of the data by obcuring the status or apply values that impose harm to everyone in the community.
Real and qualified buyers use the MLS. Thre is very little real value in have a home for sale appearing on these irresponsible websites.
When it comes time for you to buy or sell, be aware, if the home appears on aggregate real estate websites, folks you don't know will know way to much about you. Refer to my Trulia blog regarding blurring your home street view on Google Maps, another popular resource for those who mean others harm.
Best of success,
