“If there is no exterior picture of a house for sale on its brochure or on the website, it could mean there is something wrong with it. Sometimes you are shown the back view of the outside of the house rather than the front – in which case, perhaps the owner is hiding a fl aw, such as the house is in dire need of exterior work or it is subsiding”
