Everything coming out of that agents mouth is either a lie or confidential information that should not be shared or both. Either way, if you are interested in the property it is up to you to find out all of this information. You are the one spending the money, it is up to you to KNOW if it is a three family or two family home. The sellers don't care if you pay twice what they would be willing to take for the house, they want as much as possible.The fishy part isn't that you are being told all this conflicting information, the fishy part is that ANY of this type of information on pricing is being shared.
Mitchell's advice rocks.I don't find anything particularly shady about the deal - there is often so much grey in the world of real estate. The owner could very well have used the property as a 3 family not ever realizing it was only zoned as a 2 family. Or, could have known the fact precisely yet failed to tell the selling agent.It is your duty as a buyer and your buyer's agent to discover as much as you can about a potential property. Further fail safes will be the appraiser, the title search and the attorney involved. But, a buyer's agent is there to protect you and can be legally liable if they miss big facts such as the above.
