thats not bad. i know one of them paid .6 for SPG before the merger when it was possible to get closed to 3x that. I was shocked at the brazenness to even offer that low.
When people on the street donít know better and are happy getting .6, thereís no reason for brokers to not offer that.

Thereís no shortage of brokers on google search results that they can shop around by.

my point was less about the fact the seller took that price and more about the fact that a buyer was willing to offer that low. It would seem to me a very fast way to not have repeat clients when you are under market price by such a significant amount.

My point was the opposite. That buyer (and trust me, heís not the only one) obviously knows he can get some  people to take the offer, and others will counter with higher (which he might agree / settle with).

Your outlook into this industry and market is very different from your average Joe on the street earning points.

When something has a set market value. (Yes yes I know we can argue all day how itís not really a set value etc....) purposely lowballing the guy would be oynah and likely lifnay eever.

You made my arguments for me. Go to three brokers you'll get three prices. There's no set price here

Sure, you'll get 1.7, 1.8 and 1.9 but not .6!

I don't think that's considered a set rate halachically. Playing devils advocate, not endorsing the position

Are you shocked it wasnt for MT?
Or maybe he offered .6 for MT then took advantage when he thought he was referring to SPG.
