I find it can be common with investors to not disclose the principals. I have also done it myself when I purchased an vacant lot next to my cabin....didn't want them to realize who I was and how badly I wanted it.
actually, I've never had this happen.... I know of other agents that have dealt with this....using a straw and assigning a purchase and sales agreement happens occasionally with land, if the developer has deep pockets and does not want to be know as the buyer....
Consult your state laws and an attorney about if & when a principal has to disclose.
We have been the undisclosed principle.
Very rare, but it worked for Jesse Pinkman
It can be done as Trust, LLC, etc. or as undisclosed principal ( see agency law), also principal can request to be removed from public records and online searches.
I do not feel awkward. Trust and LLC transactions are quite common these days.
I rarely see this as it is against the law in TN. Our procedure is that agency has to be declared on a written form.
I've had it a couple of times. Generally speaking it's never been awkward.
Not in our neck of the woods. All parties are disclosed in the transaction.
