Pauline O'Hare(Labib) RE agent practiceIn a nutshell, we were deceived and had unknowingly to pay way higher the market value per sq. ft.We needed to buy something fast and Pauline OHare's property fit our budget. We were extremely happy with the price and decided to proceed. The advertised living area was claimed to be around 300 sq. ft. more than in taxable, which is ultimately defines the home value.As my financial broker said, she committed "borderline fraud" by manipulating the law that defines living area sq. ft. calculation. Furthermore, she represented both parties, selling and buying, so the fact of falsifying sq. ft. number was completely concealed.So now when we decided to refinance, the appraisal number is based on lower area and thus completely devalues our downpayment. Our attempts to contact her and discuss the matter failed. Any suggestions?November 05 2010 - Bellevue00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
