I have a property for sale. Google Pictures online shows a shop on the property. Every day, I get calls wanting to know how big the shop is and questions about the features of said shop. The property had a shop that has been removed and was not listed in the listing or on any of the MLS information. The shop is not on the plat that is part of the MLS supplements.
Google Earth Pictures are great at times and misleading in others. The picture of my office is over 20 years old; the car in the picture was traded about six cars ago and would not be included in anything to do with my office.
I think agents should advise their buyers about Google Earth Pictures being somewhat misleading and that it should not be used to make decisions to buy or not. The only way to be sure something is there on closing day is to include it in the contract and ensure it was on the property when you write the contract. Buildings can be moved, sometimes just as easily as driving away a car.
