ADVERTISE FOR FREE- THEN WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PAY A FEE?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Select Realtors-Buy a home in Washington DC. Sell a home in Washington DC SP98364271

Can anyone please tell me when did free cost you something? Can someone please tell me when did paying for something become free? I am sick and tired of people always saying that they are offering free services or products only to request money later on. I think it sucks and very misleading. I"ll appreciate it if I can know upfront whether something is free or not. To me,it says that you are either a fraud,thief,crook,liar or all of the above if your saying one thing and doing the opposite of what you should be doing. Sorry if I am ranting about this but I just don't know why people say "Advertise for free. But you have to pay for it. This has to stop. That's all I am saying.

To receive a free list of "Houses for sale in Washington DC",please give me a call at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at (202) 378-0283 (Direct) or (301) 560-6700 x1154(Office). I can also be reached online on my websites at www.buyandsellnewhomes.com and www.freelistofhomesforsale.com. Thank you very much. Looking forward to helping you make your home purchase or sale a stress free and very happy one. Have a great day. Lanre Folayan- Real Estate Professional with Exit Premier Realty.

I agree Lanre, FREE should be just that.  I don't even like it when they say all you have to do is pay for postage.  Usually the postage costs more than the product is worth!

Linda - Actually. I agree with you. It is not free if I have to pay for the postages. And a lot of time the postages does cost more than the product. Great post.

I agree with you! Every time I see something for free, your credit card information is always requested. Great post.

How can we be of service
Aren't we all guity. Call for free home evaluation. Contact me for free listings. I will give a free ride to look at a hundred home. Free preapproval. Free works, that why I have been suckered by it, and thats why I use it. There is always a catch.

Kris- You are right. Free is a very powerful word. Maybe that is why I like the word a lot. Thanks for your comments.

Lanre, There is no such thing as a free lunch. If you think there is you'll be sure to get indigestion. :) Brenda
