I recently had a buyer ask me about a property that is listed in my local Board in Lansing Michigan for $185,000. The property is being auctioned off at a minimum bid of $129,500. The site is propertyexchange.com. Does anyone know about this service or any other services like this? I think it's merely a lead generator for the agent, but I could be wrong. Thanks for your help.
