My phone rings a lot from buyers asking questions about homes for sale on Zillow. Just because a home is listed in Zillow inventory, buyers think it is for sale. The home could be foreclosed upon years ago or just owned by an unhappy homeowner who fell behind a month of two on his mortgage payments, and there is his house, listed as a preforeclosure on a public website without his knowledge nor permission.
The home could also be for rent either legally or listed by crooks who want to take your money and run. Doesn't matter, I get phone calls on all of that activity. How lucky is that? You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Trouble With Looking at Homes for Sale on Zillow.
