Admit it, when you are looking at house listings you like to see:
- School Info
- Transportation Info
- Square Footage
So good listing agents put this info in their listings. More buyers look and the houses sell for more. But do you want to pay more?
To save money on your next home, look for listings that:
- Have no (or few, or poor) pictures
- Have no video
- Have no school info
- Have no transportation info
- Don’t list square footage
Spend the extra time to see more houses in person, look up the school and transportation info yourself, and find the houses that other buyers are skipping. Nice houses with poor listings sell for less all the time. Most buyers just never bother to look at them.
