Real Estate Agent with Jones & Co. Realty 239-333-5556


When selling foreclosed properties, I believe that truth in advertising, even if brutal when pointing out flaws, is a success strategy. The unvarnished truth is what sells. Buyers want to just see it the way it is, and if you just give them that, that alone is a draw.

Andrea....I could not agree more.  No "Fluff" is my philosophy.  Don't try to cover up a home in need of TLC.  Bravo for your post.
