Have you ever noticed that the only ones who get away with committing fraud are the banks and real estate agents?
If a house is in foreclosure and is owned by the bank, don’t you think you ought to be able to buy it if you offer $10,000 ABOVE the listing price?
NO! They sit on your offer, let it expire, then wait for the next party to offer more than your offer that they didn’t respond to.
Putting a price on a house that’s on the MLS isn’t like a starting bid on eBay folks.
