Here’s one list you won’t want to be on if your home is listed for sale: Craigslist. A recent Coconut Grove home for sale that I have listed was posted, without our knowledge, on Craigslist.com as a vacation rental. There was no specific address listed but the scammer touted the location and amenities so well that he duped two vacationers into wiring him money in order to rent the Coconut Grove home seasonally. They may never recover their funds.
My team and I scour the internet to make certain our clients’ properties are accurately listed and represented on the internet but with thousands of permutations and unscrupulous scammers, the task is daunting. For this reason, I urge all who are looking to transact in real estate whether buying, renting or seeking vacation rentals to seek the assistance of a reputable Realtor.
Real estate typically involves substantial exchange of funds. It is not a candidate for a D-I-Y task.
