I received a flyer in my mailbox, in an envelope that was not stamped, indicating it was not mailed, from a local Real estate company stating that they had a customer who was interested in purchasing a house in my neighbourhood. It also stated that the “client’s timing is flexible and he can offer a closing date that is suitable for your needs”.
I am wondering if this is a legit way people go about purchasing a home, or if this is some sort of scam (could only really think of 1 way it could be - have a showing and they steal all of your stuff - however the collective brain power of SDMB could perhaps think of more), or just a marketing ploy for the Realtor to find out who might be selling, and get leads/interview to sell your home.
I am interested as we are going to be selling our house soon, and an easy sell would be beyond awesome, even if we didn’t get top dollar, due to a large number of life changing events all happening at the same time.
Therefore, my question to all of you is, do I call this person? Is this legit? I am being overly paranoid? Thanks!
