As real estate investors and other real estate professionals become more and more comfortable using the internet to do business, the volume of online real estate listings grows. However, there are still a number of ways in which online listings can present a number of pitfalls for potential buyers. As a real estate investor, you not only need to be aware of these potential time-wasting issues, but you must be careful that your own listings do not fall into any of these problem categories.One of the main problems that online listings present is that they are often not particularly timely. One real estate investor recounts asking to view three homes in his home area that a client located online. All had already been sold, and some had been off the market for months. Additionally, many home sellers who are attempting to sell their own homes may accidentally list incorrect information or be intentionally misleading when it comes to interpretive descriptions, such as describing a partially finished basement as “fully redone” or a kitchen as “eat in” when there is only room to eat if you are standing up.
