Dual Agency - Buyer Needs Advice. Offered over asking. Multiple appraisals low. Agent pressuring..Background - First time home buyer - Pre-approved - Saw a home that I liked one weekend and decided to make offer with listing agent the next day - Offered full asking - Agent comes back following day and says there is competing offer - I raised my offer and offer accepted following day Issues - In a perfect world I would have been happy as I got a house that I feel was good value. Not my dream house, but a house I liked, with potential...however appraisal came in 5% lower than offer price - Multiple appraisal reconsiderations denied - Agent is not being helpful at all. I know it is tough to be neutral, but at a minimum, I expect some hand holding for a very qualified first time home buyer that has never been through this. Appraisal results were outside all of our control, but agent has some duty to advise both client with the goal of closing the deal in a fair way and earning commissions from both sides - Instead, this agent is resorting to bad advice or pressure tacticsApril 22 2011 - San Francisco00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
