Public Remarks Errors

Some things just don’t belong in the public remarks field. Phone numbers, Web addresses, and your name for example. Take a look at these common examples based on real listings. The problems have been underlined in red and violate the Inappropriate Language Policy, which now carries a $200 fine under the new Penalty Policy. Our examples below are not exhaustive, see the Inappropriate Language Policy for more information.

1A
1A-2
Section 1A of the Inappropriate Language Policy prohibits website addresses (and phone numbers) for any reason in public remarks.

Title-Info
It’s violation of section 1A for the phone number but also section 2D for title information in public remarks. Title information is only allowed in private or semi-private remarks. Check the section for other prohibitions on title information as there are some restrictions on what can be said relating to title in semi/private remarks as well.

Open-House
Section 1B prohibits Open House information in public remarks.
