The real estate industry is booming, and it’s making life easier for people looking to buy a home for their family or themselves.
It’s a lot easier to buy real estate online now, thanks to the rise of platforms like Amazon and eBay.
But there’s a catch.
The websites that make buying real estate easier for buyers are also one of the biggest sellers of fake listings, and a new study suggests the websites are also the most likely to cheat you.
In a new paper published in the journal Real Estate Management and Research, researchers found that when you go to an online real estate listing site, the odds are good you’re going to get a scam.
They also found that the websites most likely have “robocalls” from real estate agents, meaning they’re trying to trick you into buying their homes.
That’s not an easy thing to avoid, as it can result in a potential scammer getting the better of you and selling you a fake property.
