Grand County is not the only place this happens, but with all our second home owners and absent owners, we are definitely susceptible to real estate fraud.
Most recently there have been vacant land owners that suddenly find their land ‘for sale,’ posted by fraudsters that have no claim on the property but are more than willing to take an innocent buyer’s money anyway!
Takeaway: Hire a Professional! Protect yourself by using a licensed Real Estate Agent. This will greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the chance that you will get taken for a ride by thieves.
