Well this thread serves as a two part topic. One, to get this off my cheast and two, to put this out there so everyone else knows. Though I'm sure this has been mentioned on here at some point.
As the title says BEWARE of some of those "listing" sites where you pay a monthly or yearly membership to look at listings.
This one particular one I've been using (Bargain network) acts as a "middleman" in listings the properties. The PROBLEM is that the only way anything is updated is if CUSTOMERS call in to say the property is no longer active. Out of the 100's or properties I've called about 95% of them were LONGGG gone!
I called customer service and explained the problem of course they guy didn't have an answer and when I asked him "well whats the point of your exsistance if the site is not updated" no answer there either.
I suspose the good side is when you call these brokers and bankers with the contact info you can go directly with them for properties, so its worth it on that end. But watch out before you jump on these network sites and get taken for a ride.
