Are they misleading or just marketing tools?
I noticed a house for sale in my area. I saw the sign up out front. Then I noticed the MLS listing about a week later. This happen at times when the listing agent buys some time just in case they get a buyer call before any other agent. This "trick" is not fair to a seller.
I recently read an MLS entry for a three bedroom two bath home however the remarks said "can be converted back to a three bedroom." Apparently a wall was removed and a conversion had taken place. So it was really a two bedroom house.
The above is very similar to the five bedroom listing that is really an office that "could be used as a fifth bedroom."
Or the MLS entry that states "new appliances" or "new roof" but is actually five or six years old. I guess it all depends on your definition of "new."
So is it misleading or just marketing tools? It a deliberate misrepresentation and wrong. How is it different than a used car "owned by a little old lady who only drove it to church on Sunday?"
