I haven't heard of such things in this local market yet, but I do have a client that is very anxious to sell their home and I know their emotions are walking on egg shells right now. Here is a good article in the Arizona Republic that speaks to pressure and threats in their market.
Yeah, this isn't 2004 and 2005, this is a different market. Please feel free to talk to your representative openly about what is happening locally for sales. Keep in mind that homes and properties are selling but at a slower pace than I think we all got accustomed to. Clear communication is what you should expect from your agent.
