Over offered per agent's advice; didn't get closing costs or any fees paid by seller.

My agent said the offer wouldn't be accepted if I asked for fees to be paid by seller.  Is this normal in todays CA market or did I get bad advice?

Was it a foreclosure or a short sale?

You may make the offer with "asked for fees to be paid by seller", if the seller refuses then remove the "asked for fees to be paid by seller" (unlikely any bank answers the decline offer).
PS. in the urban of Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, there are normal to "don't ask for fees to be paid by seller" and many are offered over the asking prices.
