Your FaceBook and Twitter posts can effect your house sale or purchase, so watch what you say!
Imagine the story of a seller who complained all the time on FaceBook about their “moneypit” house. The roof was leaky, the plumbing dripped, the neighbors are awful and was that a termite she saw??? The time soon comes that she has had enough and wants OUT, so she lists it with a Realtor. They finally get an offer and a curious buyer Googles the seller’s name and finds….. deal is off. It could happen.
What about the excited first-time home buyers who want to tell all their friends and family about the house they found. They put a link to the listing on FaceBook so everyone can see the photos, and everyone thinks it is a great deal! The buyer admits that they love it so much that they would pay FULL PRICE if they had to, just to be sure they get it! Guess what, a friend of a friend knows the Realtor and says, “Hey, isn’t this your listing?” Yep, negotiation over, that buyer is paying full price.
