Question for you realtor-broker/investors

Hi All,

I am going to be talking to a bunch of motivated sellers in the coming months and I wanted to get your opinion about whether it makes sense to offer to list and sell someones home as well as offer to buy their house as well.  Does anybody do this?  Do you have a problem offering to buy the house 25 or 30% below the market value of the house?  Thoughts and advice on this would be greatly appreciated

Scott, its always nice to have more tools in your toolbelt.  If I come across a situation where it does not make sense to buy, I've often listed the property.  In other scenarios, I do buy far below market and just disclose disclose disclose.

 Do you disclose verbally or have something written?
