I received an email from a client this morning asking about a Blacksburg condo that they had found on Trulia.com. At the price point, with three bedrooms and two baths, it was a great deal.
But it was too good to true.
The ad, shown below, shows a 903 square foot condo with three bedrooms and two baths, while the MLS listing shows a 756 square foot condo with two bedrooms and one bath. Needless to say, they were disappointed that the property wasn’t as it seemed.
And the MLS ad:
See some differences? In real estate, the mantra “Location, Location, Location” is repeated over and over, but perhaps accuracy is even more important. Sellers – take the time to review your agent’s ads.
And to prove me wrong, in the time it’s taken to write this post the property has been changed to pending. My original thought still stands, however – accuracy may be the most important property characteristic of all.
