Is having a dual agent a good thing or a bad thing? Im a 1st time home buyer.I am a first time home buyer; I recently found a new construction house that has been on the market for over a year. The price has been reduced a few times and is now at $215. No houses have sold in that area in the last 2 years and a house next door just went up for sale for $175. I am working with a dual agent for this house and I want to know if I will still be able to get the same advice/best deal as I would with a regular buyers agent? I already made an offer and the seller turned it down and only went $3000 less than the asking price of $215. I dont feel comfortable paying any more than $205. Should I counter offer of $205 and?February 08 2011 - Hickory00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
