Selling Home PRIOR to LISTING IT ON MLSWe are in the bay area, CA in a very hot market.Our agent devised a plan to sell our home by first sending out a mass email the first week. Towards the end of week 2 we would list in on MLS, have an open house that weekend, and take offers.After sending out the mass email ("1000 of prospective agents")BY the second day of the email we have an offer of 30% down and 25K over list. (The houses in the same footprint in our area have been selling for at least 625K).Should we take this offer or wait till it is on MLS then review the offers. As a side note he is BEING REALLY PUSHY about taking this first offer of 650K. The agent of the buyer is from the same real estate brokers office, so I am wondering if there is some sort of incentive for them. He says the buyer may get upset and retract it if we do the MLS listing and the open house. However this is a hot market and I want to make sure we get the most bang for our buck.March 14 2014 - San Jose00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
