Real estate ethics question
We have 3 offers. #1 is the best offer, but it's still effectively $6,000 below our asking price. #2 and #3 are comparable offers. We know enough about #1 to know it is her final offer. The other 2 could be negotiable.
#2 happens to be friends-of-friends (I facebook stalked them and discovered they went to my university). I am tempted to contact them (or their real estate agent) and say: "This is not a counter offer, but if you were to offer X by noon today, we would basically start packing our bags."
Is that unethical?
