Did your bid really go in? Metro Detroit real estate information
I got a call a few weeks ago from a Metro Detroit real estate buyer. He was all upset with a local big foreclosure agent.. He thinks the foreclosure agent never put the offer in.
I honestly don’t know whether he did or not, but I always submit the offer no matter how crazy it is or how little it is. It’s not my job to decide whether the seller will accept your offer. I have told clients that their offer would never fly, but still put it in. Sometimes the seller refused to negotiate other times they did.
As a real estate agent it is in our code of ethics that we must present ALL OFFERS.. I take that seriously. I many times drop what I am doing to get the offer in. It’s not unusual for me to run to the office in the evening to complete the paperwork for my home buyers. Then I fax and email it to the sellers agent. ( I like to do both to make sure the listing agent doesn’t try to say they never got it.)
