Adding more fuel to the fire... my wife was at our local grocery store this weekend and overheard another Realtor on the phone with her client as she was picking out fruit. She only got a short part of the convo, but it was

"Look we need to move fast if we want to snag this property. Lets just put and offer in a little above asking and wave the contingencies. That'll take the place off the market through the weekend. We'll have three days to back out by claiming HOA docs."

I guess this is a common practice these days. :\

My wife got the card of the Realtor (pretending to be an interested buyer). We're still deciding if we should pass it along to our Realtor or not... if this is a common practice these days, he might not care to spread word about her.
