I just received a similar request through Zillow. This customer, however, is from the UK. She asked about a specific house I have listed and wants to make an offer on it of $10,000 under the asking price of $550,000. This too will be cash. I've communicated 3 times with her. Her original request just came in as the typical, "I am interested in.....". Is there any harm in playing along? Are any of these out of the country offers ever legit?
Hi, Ken. Your agent can definately take care of it for you. Zillow automatically picks up listings that are in the MLS and should pick up your agent's company listings. If it does not, they can go in and "claim" the listing as theirs. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
