Is this allowed?Is a realtor hired by the seller allowed to tell the buyer to put in a lower offer because the seller is motivated? I had a realtor who I was interviewing show us a listing sheet and mention in passing that if we were interested in a certain home (we weren't) that it was priced below market value and the lady would take less than the asking price. I couldn't help picturing him promoting our house to a potential buyer and saying that we would take less. If I hired a selling agent, I would expect them to get me the highest price possible and be working for me not the buyer. As an outsider not in the bbusiness it seems like there are some conflicts of interest that arise. What do you think of this? Is this allowed?
