It’s fun to browse homes for sale online, but digital platforms have a downside and digital listings might not have complete listing information or listings can be completely FAKE! Platforms that continue to give real estate agents the biggest headache are Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. Scammers steal legitimate listing information and pictures from real homes for sale or homes recently sold and create fake ads. Scammers then create their own ‘for sale’ or ‘for rent’ listings in effort to extort money from potential home buyers- often asking for money upfront to ‘hold’ the home or ask for a down payment via cash or wire transfer before they send you the keys. NEVER send money. Call your real estate agent!
