Owner of a home in Bay Area’s Mission Hills neighborhood has put a letter to the property’s prospective buyer saying they want it back, even though he or she was told the home is already sold and no longer meets their standards.
The owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, says he was contacted by an agent for a buyer from the Bay Area who said he was interested in purchasing the house for $4.5 million.
The agent told him he would get the house in a few weeks and that the buyer would have to pay a down payment, which was the same amount the agent originally told the seller.
But after the agent called, the owner says he received a call from a man saying they were looking for a new buyer.
The man said he didn’t have any information about the house, but that he wanted to speak to the owner about it and to offer to buy it for $2.4 million.
In the letter, the buyer tells the agent that he “has no intention to sell” the house and that they should be more specific about the buyer and the home.
“We would be very happy to sell your house for a reasonable price,” the buyer says.
The letter also tells the buyer that he should contact the seller to arrange a meeting for the buyer.
When contacted by the Bay Times, the agent said he had no comment.
