real estate: Calling Off of a Real Estate Sign? Thinking Buyer Discount? - 09/17/14 07:31 AM
Calling Off of a Real Estate Sign? Thinking Buyer Discount?
I recently had a phone call from a buyer that said, "we only call the listing agent off the sign to show us the house because we can work a better deal for ourselves that way."

Foreclosure Scams Do Happen

Unfortunately, there are those who prey upon people in financial difficulty. Most likely, anything that sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam.
