5x longer...can you back that claim up with some actual data? Me suspects you are affiliated with the questionable company in the post.

please! to be honest i wish i did! i couldn't do what they do... i don't know anything about selling anything, other than food. i have worked at waffle house since i was 16. i know even less about real estate!! i'm a renter, and probably will always be one too. that is why i used their services. i couldn't afford the costs that the real estate agent quoted me. and the property my sister inherited at the same time i did took almost 2 years to sell with a real estate agent. my only other choice was to just keep this land that i had never even seen, and really didn't want! but i understand that maybe not everyone else had the same good luck i did... i just wanted to let you know how my experience was. that is after all what this is for.

sure, like i said... i wish i did work for them, i'm sure i wouldn't have needed to sell this land. however, the waffle house may be able to pay my bills, but they don't pay eenough for me to have done anything else. i'm a renter and always will be, i don't know a thing about selling real estate, and don't want to.

Was it apples to apples? What about actual sales price? Location? Lot size? Apples to apples or not? If you don't know anything about Real Estate how can you be certain about your claims?

I looked at their website out of curiousity - it's soooooo bad - particularly the amateurish advertising video featuring some teenage guy presenting with a too-big suit on.

Please...people at that work at Waffle House should be insulted to be mentioned in the same breath with the scam artists at United Properties.

Default United Property Sales Complaint

I have had a similar experience with the company called United Property Sales. My elderly mother had been called a couple of times by a high pressure sales person to sell her properties (undeveloped desert) in Texas. The salesman says that they have many buyers wanting to buy this land and all you have to do is engage their services.
The scam is totally to get an upfront fee of $750 and then never be heard from again. They are quoting high sale prices for the land as a lure in.
I would avoid these folks at all cost.
