Ever had a deal fall through because you stumbled across a body in the master bath’s Whirlpool? Or perhaps you’ve heard of the agent chained to a hot water tank in the basement, dying of dehydration? Her big mistake (of course): overpricing the listing so no agent came through the house to save her in time. OK, relax, you are in the world of fiction here.
