Each state has different laws in the buyer agency arena, you may want to see what your state laws are in this matter. Buying a short sale is difficult and your agent is actually looking out for your best interest by not showing you additional properties. You have a signed contract to purchase a house. As it's a short sale, you should have been anticipating a 4 to 6 months wait if not longer for the bank approval. It's not usual for a client to waste a realtor's time by looking for additional houses while a contract is still pending. It's a rare short sale where the extension isn't required. Your agent should rightly assume that you put in an offer on a house you wish to buy. Therefore, putting in for an extension should be a given and not require notification. Your agent didn't stop working for you, but it your tone suggests that you stopped helping her do her job. Part of that job is the frustrating wait for an answer from a bank that's not in any hurry to lose more money. If you don't have time for the wait, cancel the sale and look for homes that are not distressed financially. Just make sure you aren't liable for the commission. That realtor found you a house that you liked enough to place an offer and get it accepted. She deserves to get paid for that time and effort. The time limit for procuring cause on a short sale may be a long one!.If you can prove that the realtor is ignoring your calls and/or emails, plus you have maintained a professional, cordial discourse, you can report them to the better business bureau. Keep track of all written correspondance and times of calls. You will need proof that they aren't working in your best interest. A buyer agreement may not be necessary in your state. If it's required, they may have no procuring cause without a contract. Short sales are tricky!!! Please be patient with your realtor! Listen, Listen, Listen!!! Then ask for legal advice is warrented.
