Kiran went back and simply arranged bogus site visits with some random persons and informed Prakash that your property is of less value and people are not interested to buy and also told some unrealistic reasons. Later, Kiran informed that there is a re-seller who buys properties in Mysore, renovates and sells it to others and he is interested to buy your property, Prakash was in a hurry because he wanted to move as soon as possible, so he told Kiran that call the re-seller and help him to sell his house, later Kiran arranged a meeting with re-seller and Prakash, in the meeting price was concluded which was obviously lesser than actual market value.

Story no. 2:
Mr. Nair is a Mysorean who works in a private company in UAE, he owned a plot measuring 2400 SFT in Mysore which he wanted to sell. He got connected to real estate broker in Mysore named Guru who presented himself as a well-known real estate agent, Mr. Nair has spent most of his time in UAE and do not know the exact value of the property. Guru collected the details and said that market is down and obviously he gave the wrong figure saying it can be sold to maximum 1200 rupees per SFT, he later went to his partner named Anand and informed about the property in Mysore of Mr. Nair which has come for sale. Anand and Guru sketched a plan, Guru informed Mr. Nair that he has found one good buyer whose name is Anand and he is interested to buy your property for 1000 rs per SFT, after initial negotiation finally Mr. Nair gave it away for rs 1100 per SFT. Anand paid a small advance amount to Mr. Nair and signed a sale agreement in which it was written that Anand will pay rest of the money within 3 months and register the property. For this deal Guru charged 1% commission to Mr. Nair as Mr. Nair is unaware that Guru and Anand are partners. Later Guru and Anand placed this property in market for sale, they got one customer named Mr. Jagan who was interested. Guru went to meet Mr. Jagan posing as a real estate broker and said property belongs to his client, he showed him the property and provided details, Mr. Jagan liked it and agreed to buy it for 1300 rs per SFT. Now Guru and Anand went back to Mr. Nair and said that balance money is not arranged but they have found one good buyer who can buy it on same value, Mr. Nair without giving a second thought said ok as he has anyways signed a sale agreement. Anand took advance amount from Mr. Jagan and Guru charged 1% commission as well because he is the broker, even Mr. Jagan doesn’t know that Guru and Anand are partners. Anand collected full amount from Mr. Jagan, took his margin and paid the agreed amount to Mr. Nair and registration was completed on Mr. Jagan’s name
Difference amount which Guru and Anand will get is (3120000 – 2640000) = 480000 – C
