Handling multiple offers – and requests for highest and best offers
QUESTION: I recently listed a property for sale. After a number of showings, my seller-clients received offers from three different buyers. I presented all three offers to my clients right away. Even though one of them was for more than the list price, my clients now realize that their home could attract an even higher price. They want me to disclose the existence of multiple offers to all three agents, tell them we already have an above-list price offer and request that their buyers submit their “highest and best” offer. Would that be considered an illegal shopping of offers? If not, do you have any suggestions as to how I should proceed? Discover the answer »
