Can You Ask For Proof Of Another Offer On A House?

Are Realtors allowed to lie about other offers?

As everyone else has said, yes they can lie about other offers but if you have an escalation clause that is being used, they need to present the other offer if requested.

Do you have to disclose multiple offers?

Standard of Practice of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics states that the existence of offers should only be disclosed with the seller’s consent. The seller alone determines whether one or more of the prospective buyers will be informed that there are multiple offers.

Can you find out what offers have been made on a house?

Brokerages are required to keep copies of all offers (including counter-offers) and Buyers are able to verify the existence of additional offers through RECO. While Buyers will never be able to find out the details of the other offers, they will at least be able to verify their existence.

Can you put an offer on a house that already has an accepted offer?

A: If nothing has been signed, then there is no executed contract meaning you can still put in an offer and have it accepted. If an offer has already been accepted, then you can ask if the seller is interested in back-up offers.
