I have to agree with Cindy Davis on this. If the Buyer believes the Internet, and other sources over what I'm trying to tell them, and confirm for them, if they still don't believe, well...then they weren't much of a loss to begin with.

It happens, I usually have my team explain that once working with us, use our site as it is the most up to date. That helps it not come up once we represent them.

I have experienced this. That said, if the potential buyer thinks he or she knows better than me, and believes everything on the Internet...it's not a great loss.

Not yet, although I expect it could happen with all of the erroneous information that's available. Accuracy should begin and end with our input and even that's questionable at times.

I've had customers argue with me about listings being available when clearly they were not.  Chances are, it they don't believe the expert, they would be very difficult to work with anyway.

Happens every day.  Internet listings are usually stale because people do not remove them when their status changes.

I have not lost a buyer but I showed him the MLS listing showing Pending sale.  I will also have the listing agent text me that the home is under contract and review with the buyer.  Then If he can not get off of this home I will tell him let's write a back up offer.  But I explain there is a 99.9% the first contract is going to close.

I have never lost a client, but it has made me spend more time explaining to the client that the website they saw it on was not updated recently.
