An agent had a new listing scheduled for the typical open house in RP this weekend, but abruptly cancelled it, and withdrew the listing. These were her confidential remarks – apparently the sellers were overrun:
OPEN HOUSE CANCELLED! Multiple Offers Received over asking. No more showings. Thank you to everyone who tried to get offers to us in time. Sellers reviewing offers received & make a final decision by Saturday evening. Seller Requested that property be removed from MLS due to unauthorized visits to the home.
To cancel an open house just because you have multiple offers is a dis-service to everyone – there probably were people coming to see it who might have paid more. But if buyers/agents were busting down the doors, you might have to cancel everything just to survive?
