Bait and Switch

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Group - Lansdale, PA AB067650

Bait and Switch

We all hate it.  Yet in so many different sales environments it still exists.

Even in Real Estate. 

Some of the worst:

·         Using pictures of different properties when advertising

·         Using flowery, praising prose in the description only to find out in person that the place is a dump

·         And the worst – keeping a house on the market as “active” when it’s really under binding contract – so the agent can then hard sell all of their other listings to unsuspecting callers.

As I said – Bait and Switch – we all hate it.

Except for this one below – a must watch video!

Love it! lol There have been times I have had to look at the flyer in my hand to double check that I am at the right house! Sure my confused expression matched some of these!

That's funny . . . and it goes nicely with the post you wrote about the "beautifully maintained" . . . bait and switch!
