Must Text Agent Code on Refrigerator Before Submitting Offer
It’s not unusual in our busy seller’s market with multiple offers on some properties that agents are requesting that NO BLIND OFFERS be made.
In other words, you, the buyer, have to view the property before the offer is made, since agents say it is not unusual for blind offers to back out once they view the home after the offer is accepted by the seller.
I have seen a few listings, often in the case of short sales and REOs, where the buyer and buyer agent had to verify in writing on a form that they saw they property, and to submit the form with the offer.
This is a new one! The listing stated that the agent has to text the agent code that is on the refrigerator to the listing agent in order to verify the property was viewed.
Any creative things you have seen in your market regarding blind offers? Or do listing agents not care?
What do you think - too much to ask?
A reasonable request?
