Recently an agent was grousing on line about not being fully informed about a demerit that a property had before he brought his client to visit. The implication is that if the listing agent had disclosed more on line in the MLS, he and his clients could have saved a trip. Does he have a valid point?
How about seeking a date on line? In your match.com profile, full disclosure might require you to mention your last four squeezes who hate you, or about your star turn on America’s Most Wanted.
But of course advertising is a different animal than disclosure. People are notorious for buying (or marrying) something/someone not even close to their wish list. I had one buyer who drove me absolutely nuts searching for the perfect “mancave”. Then he bought a condo on a slab. Huh?
As a seller’s broker, our role is to attract folks. It would seem incumbent upon us to keep from actions that would discourage someone from considering the property. So for my part, I promise I will not complain, if on my next showing, we get a hearty snootful of aroma from the pig farm next door.
