Why seller accepted a much lower offer?About four months ago I saw a house selling for $575,000. The seller was sort of disabled and abroad and one of her relative was taking care of the house. I made an offer of $500,000 and the agent called back one day later with a counter offer of $525,000. I didn't raise my offer and heard nothing since then. But last week I saw from zillow that the house was sold for only $450,000 and the deal closed one month ago. I am wondering why my offer wasn't considered and I wasn't at least contacted before the deal. With my offer I would be able to put at least 25% down, and I'm in the highest group in credit scores.September 22 2013 - Commack00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
