This just happened to my sister and brother-in-law in Baton Rouge, LA and I thought it would be timely to share with you.
Their house has been on the market for about a year and the price happens to fall in that "in between" price range where houses just aren't selling very fast at all. You know the range...not inexpensive enough to appeal to the bargain hunters and not expensive enough to appeal to the high-end house hunters.
Anyway, their real estate agent notified them yesterday that she had seen their house listed for lease, complete with pictures showing the house vacant, on Craig's List. The agent then notified Craig's List and they removed the fraudulent post. In speaking with the agent, I learned that the pictures used on the Craig's List post looked like they were taken with a phone...which brings to light two possibilities: 1) one of the buyer's agents took pictures during a showing or 2) one of the buyers themselves wasn't really a buyer and took pictures.
I post this only to make you aware that this happens and I hope it doesn't happen to you. The rest of the story is posted on my blog at Marqeteer.com. Check it out and I hope you have found this helpful:)
