It baffles me, online sites are charging for foreclosure info!

Recently I had an article come across my desk about those who are tricked into paying a fee for information that they could get for free. I couldn't believe it! I getforeclosure information for free. Not only do I get it for free but I give it to my clients for free.

In the past I have had people who purchased this information from these type of sites bring me the information they paid for. When they gave it to me I was amazed with how much of the info was incorrect.

Here is the complete article I came across. The article talks about how some people use deceptive online practices to trick buyers into paying monthly fees.

Hidden Real Estate Fees

What do you get from paying real estate fees?

Because of our experience in Real Estate we see a lot of things. Many times we have gone to a closing where the other people were charged a mysterious fee by their agents and brokerages. We have always wondered what this fee is? What is that for? Sometimes the fee is a legal fee mandated by a broker. Other times however, this fee is illegal!

Sometimes the broker or the agent doesn’t even realize that they are charging their clients an illegal fee. They may justify their fee by citing many other brokerages who have it or by claiming that the fee has been around for a long time. The idea that a lot of people are doing something does not make it legal.
