1. Calling the listing agent and asking “Is there anything wrong with the property?” The listing agent is not an inspector. If the property is 2000 s.f. and priced at $30,000 it probably has issues.

3. Not looking for supporting documents in the MLS.

7. Submitting an offer without proof of funds or a pre-approval letter.
8. Not submitting a complete offer package.
9. Not allowing enough time for a response.
10. Giving the listing agent an attitude because of the instructions that the seller has given the listing
agent that the selling agent does not want to follow.
