With All Fairness
Why oh why do agents tell other agents there is offers on their listing when there is not?
I find it deceptive practice to leave the buyers agent under the impression there are multiple offers you are competing on when you are not?
Is this typical practice amongst agents? I understand the theory behind it to generate more offers and higher offers for the seller you work for but what about honesty? What about keeping it transparent? What if a buyers agent who clearly has a qualified buyer, a serious buyer and willing and able buyer is pricing an offer fair and in line with market value?
I believe it can a disservice to the seller should that buyer walk and not be willing to compete if there are really no other offers?
