I got an email today from Brad Anderson. He had gotten a contact from a buyer who had purchased one of my listings. They had their own buyers agent. They asked Brad to ask me to take the blog down on the home they purchased.
I did right away, but it got me thinking. Know I have to start searching some of my old blogs on other homes because really they should come down. Or do you think they shouldn't come down? It is an interesting question because of course we lose the back links to our websites when we delete the blog. We lose the points when we delete the blog.
But some buyers don't wnat their home out their one the internet forever. Some people are very private. They don't want people to know what they paid for it or what the list price was. Some people are afraid of burgulars are going to use the information. And of course there are the scams on the internet using our pictures to rent a home. Some buyers want their privacy.
So should we be deleting listings once they are sold? I lean that way. If I can find them or I am asked I will always take them down. If it make the buyer feel comfortable I say do it. gotta go I have to check out all my old listings.
