By now, you’ve heard about the recent controversy regarding real estate agents charging clients more for their properties than they could afford.
But there are many more problems with this practice that can lead to a costly mess for consumers, too.
In fact, there are already a few examples of agents using false and misleading claims, which could cost consumers money if they buy a property without knowing what they are getting.
Here are five ways real estate agencies can get away with it:1.
Use the wrong agent.
If you buy a house, you are buying a home.
This is a very simple thing to do.
If your agent tells you that your property is $10,000 to $12,000 over its appraised value, that is a reasonable estimate.
You are buying an apartment for less than that, and it is also worth less than it actually is.
You can use the same information to determine the true price of your home.
However, there is a lot of room for error.
It can be very easy for agents to make estimates that they know are false, but it can be equally easy to make a mistake and make an agent look bad.
This can lead buyers to believe that the agent is exaggerating the value of their home.
In addition, if the agent’s sales agent is an expert in the field, it is very hard to trust her.2.
Negotiate with a “sold-out” agent.
The next time you are in a negotiation, make sure you ask the agent that you are working with for advice and recommendations.
If the agent says that she is “sold out,” it’s a very good sign that she could be lying.
If she says she will do “anything” for you, it could be that she wants to sell the property for a lower price than you could have hoped for.3.
Sell a property for more than the appraised sale price.
If an agent wants to “sell” your property for the price of the real estate it is appraised at, that could mean that you owe more than what you paid for it.
You should contact the seller to find out the true value of the property.
If it is $100,000, you should pay more than $150,000.
If you think you have been tricked, contact the FTC and tell them that you think the agent lied.
The FTC will help you determine if the seller is using a deceptive tactic.4.
Sell property for less if the appraisal is lower.
Real estate agents can often sell property for substantially less than the price that you paid it to begin with.
This may include selling your home for $200,000 or $300,000 for an apartment that is only listed at $300 per square foot.
These types of deals are extremely lucrative and can lead you to pay thousands of dollars more than you should have.
The FTC is taking action to protect consumers from this practice.
You may have heard about this new agency called The Home Improvement Council, which has been offering to help buyers and sellers resolve these types of problems.
The Home Council will offer to work with you to resolve any issues you have with your agent.
In addition, you can contact your local government, which may be able to help you in resolving some of these issues.5.
Neglect your rights.
If a real estate agent claims that you have to pay more money if your property doesn’t sell for a certain amount, it may not be true.
This type of misleading advice is illegal and can result in financial harm to you and your family.
If a real house agent tells a buyer that a house that he or she sold is worth $50,000 and a property that he sold is only worth $30,000 because it is a higher-end house, the buyer is being misled into believing that the real house is worth more than it really is.
If that happens, you will be responsible for paying more money and should be able, at the very least, to cancel the transaction.
