About a week ago, I got a call from a prospective buyer that was feverishly interested in one of our listings in the Heights District. He wanted to see it IMMEDIATELY as he might want to write up an offer TODAY.
But first he wanted to make sure that what he had seen was correct. A 2500 Sq Ft home in the Heights for just $100,000? When he first saw that, he knew he had to have it. There was only one issue: The listing price is $365,000. Hence his excitement! He then proceeded to tell me he had seen it on EBay. Which is funny, since we never have put our listings there. After I left him feeling crushed, I head on over to Ebay and I see this:
Infuriated, I contacted "the Seller" and demanded that the listing be pulled immediately. To my surprise, I noticed that Ebay has no easy way to report fraudulent or incorrect listings.
So what does it matter that someone has listed the home on Ebay? What if someone bids on the property and this person collects a deposit (a la earnest money deposit) from an unsuspecting buyer looking for a great deal?
My recommendation: Head over to Ebay right now, go to their real estate section and see if some Bozo is messing with your listings and putting fraudulent and misleading information out there.
