Guaranteed Buy program... is it ethical?
Here the real situation. All names are fictional.
The buyers B, represented by RE agent A, let (walk) into house. On the dining room table of the home was a flyer by The X Team which stated "Buy This Home and The X Team Will Buy Yours!" As the buyers B need to sell their home in order to buy another, they asked agent A to check into it. Agent A did as requested and found out that the twist is that The X Team must have both ends of the deal before they will "buy yours". As agent A is representing the B' on the buying side, and pledged to do what's best for them, this forces A to give up on them as a client and turn them over to the X's Team. If agent A don't, then the agent A not doing the best for clients, and frankly they would probably give up A's services and change to H if it made for a guaranteed sale of their current home. Pretty clever strategy.
Does this seems like a "semi-illegal" if not outright unethical method of taking clients from buyer agents when their buyers need to sell their current home?
