Agents stretching the truth to get higher bids?I recently made an offer on a home. The seller countered me at a price I was not willing to pay. After I declined, the seller's agent advised another buyer would be taking the deal at the countered price that I declined. That was over 3 weeks ago and the house is still actively for sale on the MLS. What's the deal?August 23 2012 - Staten Island00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
