"Lester the Lister"
You do not make reference to the real estate location or address.
You do not make reference to the price point.
You do not make reference to the 'conditions' of the sale.
It appears your question has only one purpose.
To discredit the agent.
Let's make a gesture at fairness and provide at least ONE fact.

Yes, in our current market there can be 5 contracts on a property. Our inventory in Downers Grove is down about 19% from last year while our sales are up approximately 32%. Our low inventory and an increase in sales is creating demand. We are seeing multiple offers and a very quick market time.
I don't know which home you are referring to so I am not able to answer about the amount of money needed to clean the property.
Does your daughter have an agent of her own? If not, I would recommend that she works with a local agent who will help her through the buying process as well as explaining the market in Downers Grove.
I hope this helps!
