Why do some real estate practitioners and buyers insist on presenting offers verbally? Shouldn’t all offers and counteroffers be in writing? Is presenting an oral offer a violation of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Code of Ethics?
I recently showed a house to a client, and he expressed an interest in making an offer. Later, I showed the same property to another client, and she wants to make an offer. Have I violated the Code of Ethics?
