Backyard would need a lot of work and we noticed a water stain in the ceiling that might need fixing too. It's a hot market here though, and we offered 98% of the asking price. Seller's agent sent our realtor back an email that simply stated, "Offer Rejected". Our realtor followed up to ask for the reason for the rejection and she replied that they received an offer over the asking price with thousands of dollars in concessions. This was Monday.<br/><br/>It's now Thursday and the home is still listed as Active on MLS. I had heard statuses had to be flipped to Pending within 24 hours of accepting an offer? We're actually thinking the offer may have been rejected because we have a Muslim-sounding last name (not that it matters, but we're not Muslim). &nbsp;We find it hard to believe that after 128 days on the market they got our offer and one over asking price both within 24 hours of each other but now that it's been days and the house is still listed as Active we're wondering what's going on. Do we have any recourse?<br \><br \>13 replies Thu, 02 Apr 2015 17:14:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Offer-flat-out-rejected/581339/ 2015-04-02T17:14:00Z Lease with option to buy to save your transaction when banks turns you down http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Lease-with-option-to-buy-to-save-your-transaction-when-banks-turns-you-down/585858/ [self promotion deleted by Zillow moderator.
