Imagine that you are the buyers’ agent and that you are just finishing showing them a house that, obviously, they feel is perfect for them. As you stand in the foyer talking, they begin to discuss making an offer. The three of you talk about financing and negotiation strategies. They emphasize that, although they could and would pay full price — even more! — they want to start with a lower offer. You may even agree with them, and you start talking about various alternative scenarios. Etc. Etc. All is good, right?
Now suppose that, unbeknownst to you, the seller has recorded your entire conversation and all the remarks made during your tour of the home. Both audio and visual. Not so good after all, right?
