Spycams are reportedly being used by home sellers who want to ink a deal sooner rather than later.
According to a recent LendingTree survey, 3 in 10 home sellers admit to using hidden cameras when they host an open house.
The survey, which was commissioned from the experience management firm Qualtrics, notably had a small sample size of home sellers – 346 – compared to home buyers – 1,160 – for a total sample size of 2,050.
Of those sellers who admit to using cameras without notifying buyers, 49% claim they do so to find out what buyers "do and don’t like about their home."
