An instant classic! A reader forwards an email they recieved promoting a friend-of-a-friends open house this weekend. The classic excerpt:

“I have an open house this Sunday from 2-4 and would greatly appreciate if you stopped by and simply pretend to be interested buyers.”

Brilliant. And yes, we have the address and listing details, but we’re protecting the (not so) innocent (for now). Suffice it to say, the open house with the disproportionate number of “interested” (and outwardly vocal) parties is probably the one. And please remember, don’t always believe the hype.
