Recently I came across a new tactic agents are using to advertise their properties either For Sale or To Let. They place their signages or banners at houses or apartments which is not for sale. They choose houses or apartments which are located in very prominent locations, high traffic or busy areas. So, don't be surprised if a property with a big For Sale or To Let signage at its main gate is actually not for sale or to be rented out. The agent placed the advertisement there just to get attention and hopefully respond from potential buyer. Is this against the law? Is this a new tactic or it has been used for a long time? Not sure if the agent paid the owner/tenant of the property to place the advertisement??
