I always look at listings in a potential guests wish lists. It helps me get an idea of the type of place they want, the price they are willing to go up to, and the areas that they are considering.
I had an inquiry this morning from a German family, and they are looking at my 3 bedroom house. I take a look at the profile, see they have one glowing review, and then scroll through their NY wishlist. There are two separate listings for NY apartments with images containing contact info. One listing is too good to be true (might be the one this screen shot is from) and the other looks slightly more legit.
How are people still getting away with this, and who’s falling for it? I know other hosts that have had text on the image like “Park in this garage” and have had the pictures removed.
