Owning a home in the Valley often means getting a pesky, annoying text message from an unknown someone wanting to buy it.
A top official from the Arizona Association of Realtors has, too.
“It’s an issue,” said Gary Nelson, president-elect of Arizona Realtors said. “Like I said, I receive them myself.”
While the practice may skirt a gray area as to whether it’s legal, in some cases those who take advantage of the buyer’s offer run the risk of losing a lot of money.
Mr. Nelson said the best thing to do is to be careful. He said those text messages likely don’t come from licensed Realtors.
