Should a Seles agent influence the seller not to sell a home under contract for appraised value...If she knows there is a cash buyer? So I was under contract but the appraisal did not come up to the asking price. I believe another buyer had contacted the agent shortly after we had signed because there was a big rush to get appraisals and inspections done. They may have told her they would pay full asking price. For some strange reason the seller would not sell for less than 20k over value. We had the money but with acconomy ups and dows why buy it over value. And why buy it 80k over 99.9% of similar homes built by same builder. We believe she influenced the seller not to sell and play hard ball on the price to drive us out. Is this ethical? I would love to know because I would suggest all home owners to keep house active even if it is under contract so they all may get a better offer. That is what they did... Put it back to active and had an open house while we were under contract. I believe this is how she plans to hide her bad behavior. I have a bad taste in my mouth. I'm sure not all agents can be considered a bad penny, but this one surely looks tarnished. Love to put her out of business. If this kind of behavior is the norm we are all doomed.July 07 2014 - Fort Mill00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
