I'm sure everyone has gotten a low ball offer on one of their listings or has made a low ball offer. Sometimes the listing price is way off and the "low' offer may actually be in line with what the property is actually worth. If the seller is really motivated occasionally you get a reasonable counter. What bothers me is when an agent makes a truly ridiculous offer on a home that is priced fairly. I have a property listed at $229,000 with a value somewhere between $200,000 and 229,000. I got an offer for $95,750. This offer has no chance of being accepted or even countered and I relayed this to the agent. Her reply is that she is only doing what her client wants. He has a formula and this is how he buys. She "has" to make the offer because that is what her client wants. Really? If he wants you to make $10 offers on every home will you do that also? If he wants you to jump off the bridge will you do that? Personally I would not have submitted the offer. Why waste everyones time? What I want to know is where does it say she "has" to make the offer. I know we must present all offers to the seller. Where does it say we have to submit all offers from the buyer? I dont see that requirement anywhere.
