Recently I was previewing properties in a subdivision for an upcoming listing. As I pulled up homes in our local MLS one listing was clearly outside the subdivision. I called the agent to let him know the mistake. He was appreciative and aghast at the mistake knowing how critical subdivisions are when searching for homes. Mistakes happen but some mistakes can really torpedo selling a home. This type of mistake has the possibility of making the home invisible online.
This goes back to always reviewing and double-checking that information is correct in your marketing. Many agents have assistants that could make honest mistake or perhaps the information given to the assistant is wrong. Ultimately, it is the agents responsibility to ensure that the information is accurate. Details are important. In the military, we had a axiom "You can delegate authority, but you can not delegate responsibility." The same applies to real estate you HAVE to double-check and insure that your marketing is accurate.
