Is it okay for a real estate agent to not inform the seller about an offer?Hi everyone.I have been house shopping for a while and finally found a house that I fell in love with. I'm working with my agent who works for a large, well-known real estate company, and my agent had put in an offer for me. It was not a verbal offer, but an official offer. I signed a lengthy paperwork, had a lawyer friend look at it, and the offer would require me to complete the transaction if the seller takes my offer/ contingent on inspection.However, my agent and I just found out that the seller's agent chose to not even tell the seller about our offer. Yes, my offer was lower than the asking price, but I was offering 100% cash upfront and was willing to meet halfway if there was a counter offer. To me, it sounds kind of unprofessional that she wouldn't even tell the seller about an offer. Is this even an ethical conduct? I still want this house but wonder if I should just move on to different properties rather than dealing with such an unprofessional agent...Is it customary for an agent to not inform the seller about an offer if he or she considers it not lucrative enough? I would like to know so it would save me a lot of disappointments and headaches. Thanks!
