I have recently started as a real estate agent and do not have much experience. I would not try to hide the mistake I did, I should have researched well before investing in homes.com. I was at fault for believing them. But what they did was unethical and illegal.
The company promises big returns and great leads and gets you to pay the unnecessary charges without getting anything out of it. What is more daunting is the way they treat their customer.
I spoke to an agent before joining homes.com. He told me that they offer great leads and are well experienced in finding them. He lured me into signing their contract. He told me that they have been working for the same from a long time and would assist me with everything. The man on the line also promised that they guarantee the success of the leads.
After talking to him, I paid to become a member on their site. It has been six months and I am still struggling to get the leads. I have already spent more than $300 and they are trying to buzz me off whenever I try to question them.
After I paid for their services, I waited for some time for fresh leads and they told me that they would be providing leads from high priced areas. So, it would take some time. I waited and they kept me giving excuses.
I was waiting for the peak season that is between March-May and though maybe they would be able to do something about the leads then. But, I was completely wrong. They never tried to even assist me with the leads. They never had the intention to do anything of that sort.
They provided me several leads during this period but none of them worked. They were dead ends and incorrect details. Either the phone number was incorrect or it was not working at all. All my mails started bouncing back. Not even the emails that were provided, worked.
I was frustrated and asked them about the issue. When I asked to terminate the six months’ contract, they started giving me excuses. Since then, I have spoken to other leads provider and they do not guarantee anything close to what homes.com gave.
Homes.com told me that they do not guarantee anything which they promised when I was just a lead for them. They will try to lure you at first. Then will keep giving excuses for why their services are not working. When that will also not work, they will tell you that they are giving you exposure and this is their favourite line.
Homes.com is a scam and many other users have the same issue with them. That clearly proves their fraud.
2663page views and 300$ of monetary losses. The most of the users reported the severity of the scam is high.
