What did I do wrong?Hi guys,Let me preface this by saying we are pretty green regarding home buying.We found an REO property that we really liked, but they were asking more than it was worth. There was a homebuyer offer only period for 2 weeks and we agreed to wait til near the end of that period to submit an offer to negotiate a lower price. All of this was fine at first. About a week before the homebuyers period ended, I started sending my agent emails about what we needed to do to get the offer ready. Those emails started turning into calls. We kept asking our agent to tell us what information we needed to provide for him and what we needed to do to be prepared to make the offer. On the very last day of the homebuyer's offer period we were scrambling. We finally got a copy of the paperwork from our agent late in the afternoon. We found out at that time that someone else had put in an offer on the house and the bank had made a counter offer. I more or less had to skip work to get everything done and faxed back to our agent, but by the time he was ready to make the offer the bank had accepted the other buyers offer. I'm not mad that we didn't get the house. I'm disappointed, but we knew we might not get it since we wanted to negotiate a better price. I'm angry that we spent a week screwing around and were scrambling on the last day of the homebuyer offer period without an offer ready and never even got one submitted. So guys, am I right to be angry about this? Should I have been more forceful stating that we wanted to have the offer submitted by a specific day?June 14 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
