Helping you find your way home.

One example of false advertising might be to market yourself as a real estate school, and then make your students educate themselves by going on a public website and asking, and re-asking anonymous question after question of real estate agents online.

That might be false advertising.

Asked and answered multiple times just since the start of 2017... suggest you go back and review and maybe write a post about it. You'll learn a whole lot more about it. Also, false advertising can be very locally determined from one state to another.

The only example I can think of that I've ever seen myself was when a two bedroom home was listed as a three bedroom home, and the associated apartment was listed as a one bedroom when it was a studio.

I took my buyer clients to check out the house and we looked all over and couldn't find the third bedroom. When I called the listing agent, he said, well, it's 3 bedrooms between the two units. It wasn't even. It was two bedrooms and a studio, and he was calling it FOUR bedrooms in his listing. 

That's the only thing I can remember that I would consider false.

When it is out and out lies or misrepresentation such as photo editing a house picture to remove a negative house feature or neighborhood feature. This is a no-no.

To many to list ... and frankly it is not well "policed".  Unless an agent narks on another agent for false advertising ... it is done and it seems no one really cares.
