As a home buyer you may have encountered one or more Bend Oregon Home which may seem too good to be true.
If you’ve been left wondering if a home is possibly a scam or not, here are 3 things to watch out for which will help you to avoid the time, money and hassle of falling prey to a Real Estate scam.
Tip 1 – Pressure to Close
One of the important things you should always be able to do as a home buyer is take your time so you can have confidence in the fact that you’re purchasing the right home for your family
Any seller or agent who is pressuring you to close should cause you to take a step back and question if there may be something wrong.
Tip 2 – Very Low below Market Value
Although it’s not uncommon to see homes listed below market value, you should question homes which are listed far below market value since there may be a reason why the homeowner is trying to sell their home for that price.
Tip 3 – You’ve Been Asked for Your Financial Information
Last of all, but most important, if you’ve been asked for your financial information, or the seller has asked you to wire them money through Western Union, these are also classic scam indicators and signs that the seller should not be trusted.
