Realtors warn potential clients to be wary of the Web!

A story posted by KCRG warns potential renters and home buyer about the dangers of finding property online!

As technology improves, criminals keep finding new ways to scam people. Realtors say more and more con artists are trying to take advantage of people looking to buy or rent homes online.

See, Realtors nowadays have to compete harder for sales against for-sale-by-owner types (which can sell their homes for less since they don’t have to pay a commission to a real estate agent) because of, guess what, the INTERNET! So while buyers and rents should be careful using Craigslist, it seems that the Realtor source might be a little biased when warning potential clients to be wary of the Web.

  1. Although I feel bad for people who get scammed, I don’t understand why anyone would send someone money without first meeting them and/or seeing the house.

    Also, while I know there are scams on the internet, I assume professional Realtors wouldn’t hesitate to take advantage of someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing when buying or renting a house.
