Property flip by listing agent to his own wife!!!Last September I saw a BANK OWNED property listed for $18500. I told my realtor to make an offer for $20500. Because the listing agent worked at the same Keller Williams office he send him an email saying that next morning he will be making the offer for $20500. First thing in the morning I signed the offer and when the realtor was on his way to fax the offer he received a phone call from the listing agent saying that he already have an offer for $27000 and if I want the property I should offer $28000. I accepted to offer $28000. I meet again the realtor we cross out the original $20500 and place the $28000. The listing agent start saying that the property was mine but I need to wait because the bank needs time to pay the liens. To make this history short after two months I get a phone call from my realtor saying that the listing agent told him that the bank became in so many expenses that I should go to $31000 if I want the property. The situation was so frustrated that I accepted to pay the $31000. At the time of the closing I found out that I was buying from an LLC and not from a bank. I started researching and found that the LLC was owned by "the listing agent wife" who is also a realtor and the property was sold to her for $19801. I asked for a meeting with the broker and listing agent without saying what I know. They told me that because of my poor english I didn't understand that there was another transaction in the middle. Listing agent told me that the bank accepted an offer that was placed before mine but he has no proof.What should I do? Any recommendation? Who is in fault? Listing agent? Buyer (also a realtor)? Broker? The three of them?Thanks for your help.May 13 2012 - West Palm Beach0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
