Bonjour! Everything on the Internet is true
Guess what? Not everything you read on the internet is true! Just think of the State Farm® Bonjour commercial.
Yes, that commercial is silly but there is truth in it. The internet is a great resource but you need to make sure you are getting your information from a reliable source. You can find a lot of good information about real estate on the internet. Some sites report higher or lower house values, some show listings as available when they are not. This is true for sales and leasing. Realtor.com is a great reliable site to view listings for sale and for lease. The listings on realtor.com come directly from the REALTORS® that have them listed.
Craigslist’s is a great place to find all kinds of items for your house and you can even find your house on it! However, every week we receive calls from prospective renters or buyers that come from stolen rental/ for sale ads placed on sites such as Craigslist. Unfortunately, some people fall prey to these scams before working with a professional. Important tips to remember are to never send money to someone you haven’t met; don’t lease/buy the house without seeing it; verify that the person you are “talking” does in fact have the right to rent or sale the house.
Avoid all of that trouble and contact a Property Professionals, Inc. agent today to find your new home.
