Here’s what Tracy had to say about this and some other similarly placed houses by this agent.
Yesterday I discovered a Zillow mystery. An Agent Ann Thai who advertises “ foreclosures to come” by listing the houses with no address, or no price. See “clayton rd, SJ CA # 95127 .” I found numerous postings by this realtor, all with the same MO. Not sure if it’s a scam, but something about it seems like a manipulation of the MLS system/ Zillow.
Let me know what you think if you have a chance. Is it wrong? I am wondering if I should call, but I have called these forclosuretors before and it was nothing but slime.
What do you think, readers? Is this nothing but slime? Couldn’t there be some sleaze and scum in the frothy mix as well? Tracy sent this in two weeks ago, so clearly this realtard has a looser definition of “soon” than most of us do. Kind of like “mañana” but without the sense of urgency.
Here are two more properties listed in the same way, but with addresses so you can check them out a little more. First we have a high-res, high visibility property in not-Campbell with a “potting shed.” The quotation marks say it all: something was spinning in there.
and this one that has a watermark in the tanbark, along with “Landscaping, carpet, paint, linoleum, fixtures, lights, heater&more!” So many extras!
Each of these homes in turn link to Redfin pages saying “Foreclosed Home: Not for Sale” as you can verify yourself for both the Bascom Ave and Ortiz Ct properties. You can also get the full text on the Zillow links on each address, and most of it is an assurance that there are 50 MORE FORECLOSURE LISTINGS THAT WILL BE GOING ON THE MARKET/MLS SOON.
Also let us know how you do making a full asking price offer of a dollar on any of these winners! You could be featuring an even faster flip than the pros in Redwood City can manage, and we promise to give it plenty of Burbed love.
