This is not an uncommon practice but in my opinion, although you did not ask, is simply this…
- If a seller wants to pay a buyer's agent a bonus put it in the remarks where the prospective buyers can see it as well.
- If your house is priced correctly you will likely get an offer near the full price although typically there is some negotiation.
- Offering a bonus for a full price offer in a declining market is strange!
Besides, if the full price offer is well above the market value, the appraisal may come in low and you lose out on a possible buyer.
