Homes that are sold before they are exposed to the public market place are fairly common. Realtors meet sellers that are motivated and will accept a lower price to avoid the uncertainties of the marketing process. If a realtor has an investor looking for a good price, and that realtor puts the buyer and seller together- then there may be no need to expose the property to the general public until after the purchase agreement is signed. These homes, then show up on the MLS as “pending sales” just as this one did. Nonetheless, short or fraud or scam, we have every reason to believe the price agreed to by the buyer and seller is a fair one, and it will impact the sale of other similar homes. That’s why I go look. This might well be one of the best deals in a while, or it might be ho-hum. I want to know. Watch the video and find out.
