When it comes to real estate, it's a buyers market out there. Homeowners are giving away 50-inch plasma televisions, $20,000 cash-rebates, $500 gasoline cards, and even the cars in their garages. Sellers will try just about anything to unload that second mortgage--including getting you drunk.

Stories are starting to circulate about real estate agents providing alcohol to potential buyers. It's been coined as a BUI, or buying under the influence. Only this time, when you wake up, you'll have much more than a headache.
